THE CREATION OF NORTH AND SOUTH FAYETTE TOWNSHIP
ALLEGHENY COUNTY IN 1846
Finally, according to law regulating elections (July 2, 1839 P.L. 519) it
was necessary for the state legislature to recognize each township as an
election district. In the Act of February 23, 1847 P.L. 135 (Act No. 97),
elections in North Fayette were to take place in the house of Francis
JAMISON, (p. 115) at Roger's Mill (sec.5), and in South Fayette at the house
of H. HAYS on the farm of G. Y. COULTER (sec. 10). Officials were also
appointed to hold township elections on the third Friday of March, 1847.
Once that election had been completed, the townships were completely
established as local municipal governments in Allegheny County.
