Your comment made me curious. I did a search on the USGS Mapping page at
and found 19 Union Twps. They are in the following counties:
Adams, Bedford, Berks, Centre, Clearfield, Crawford, Erie, Fulton,
Huntingdon, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lebanon, Luzerne, Mifflin, Schuylkill,
Snyder, Tioga, Union, Washington.
However, I was able to find out that McVeytown is in Mifflin County, just
south of a place called Belleville. Union Twp, Mifflin County is shown just
south of Belleville. A clue perhaps?
