Description Directory of Greater Berwick, Including Berwick, West Berwick, North Berwick, and Nescopeck de Unknown Author:

Excerpt from Directory of Greater Berwick, Including Berwick, West Berwick, North Berwick, and Nescopeck: Containing, Besides, an Up-to-Date Residence and Home Directory and Much Local Information Previously published in "Picturesque Berwick," by Messrs. Hertz and Raseley in 1901, and republished by Special permission. In selecting material for the history of Berwick, Messrs. Hertz and Raseley reviewed all procurable histories and old letters and documents. From this data and the statements of old residents they have endeavored to make a true account of the birth and growth of our town. In 1772, Evan Owen came from Philadelphia by way of the Susquehanna river in a Durham boat, and located on a clearing at the mouth of Fishing Creek. The settlement was made up principally of Quakers, among them being Benjamin Doan, whose family name is quite familiar to our older citizens. In 1780 Owen removed thirteen or fourteen miles farther up the river (where Berwick is now situated). Here he and others among whom were the Doans, seemed to content themselves with farming and between times keeping a sharp outlook for Indians which at that time were playing havoc up the valley. The earliest settlers were from Philadelphia. During the first year or two they pulled tree tops together and covered them with bark, living in these temporary abodes until they were able to build more permanent homes of logs, etc. The farming land being of good quality, quite a number soon settled here and this no doubt prompted Evan Owen to found a town, which he did in 1786. The location was a wise one- with natural drainage, because of its location at an altitude of 100 feet above the river- and surrounded as it is with picturesque scenery, no more suitable site could have been found along the whole shore of the meandering Susquehanna. The settlement, previously to the laying out of the town, was called by the farmers Owensville, but on the formal plotting into streets, etc., Evan Owen christened it Berwick, after the town of his nativity in Scotland, along the Tweed. The next settlers were Robert and John Brown, who built log houses directly opposite each other on Market, very near the corner of Front. Samuel Jackson, a brother-in-law of Evan Owen, erected a house on Front street, on the present site of Lyman Fowlers residence, and was followed by James Evans, Henry Traugh and John Smith, who each built a house on North Front street. These settlers endured great hardships, as it was with the greatest difficulty they could obtain goods from Reading, and afterwards from Easton and Mauch Chunk, on horseback and foot. Evan Owen was the "Squire," and settled all disputes. Every bear killed was brought to him and divided equally among the settlers.
