The meetings in Pennsylvania's Washington and Fayette Counties were set off
from Baltimore Yearly Meeting to Ohio Yearly Meeting. Westland Monthly
Meeting and Redstone Monthly Meeting were the main ones, with Hicksite,
Gurneyite and Wilburite branches, so one needs to review several
depositories to check all the records. However, only the Wilburite Ohio YM
included Providence MM at Perryopolis in Fayette County and Sewickley MM in
nearby Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.
I cannot get my browser to open QuakerMeetings.com right now, but all these
meetings are included in the "Ohio" volumes of Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of
American Quaker Genealogy. That should probably be the first source to
search for these people.

Does anyone know where to check Friends records for Fayette County and
Washington County in PA? James Wilkinson married Rebecca Barr of Allegheny
County in Perryopolis, PA. It was a Methodist ceremony. I am beginning to
think that the Moses Wilkenson of Perry Twp may have been a dismissed
I am not familiar with Quaker Meetings research. Please help me if you can?
The kindness will be passed on to another genealogist.
Thank you and God Bless,
