Get's pretty confusing on PA counties.  According to "Handy Book for Genealogists" published by Everton Publishers, Bedford Co was formed in 1771, prior to that it was part of Cumberland Co.  Bedford Co at that time included the Somerset Co. area (until 1795), part of Cambria Co, Washington Co, etc.
I prefer to show the present County designation where known as it seems to give the ordinary person a better clue of the geographical area where something happened.

Hi Cheryl,

Isn't Brothersvalley in Bedford Co? If so, it's mid-central Pa in the

Washington Co, Greene Co, and Fayette Co form SW Pa.
