Benjamin Elliot -Riverview Recollections

We are currently printing signs for the Riverview Recollections Audio Tour.  There where five graves that we needed something  on the signs.   Searching our original written archives we found a Huntingdon County Courthouse receipt dated 1795 written and signed by Benjamin Elliot one the five that we needed.  We are still looking for something to put on the signs  for Samuel Steel, Thomas Duncan Smith, and Susannah Eisenberg (Isenberg).  If anyone has any information on these individuals please contact the museum. Shown is one of the  receipts we have from Benjamin Elliot.
