There are no specific attributions heading up the individual chapters. However, the Preface contains various acknowledgements which may be helpful in assessing the provenance of this volume. Here is an extract:

"He was assisted in his labors by Messrs. M. A. Leeson and John Meagher, of Chicago, and John F. Meginness, Esq., of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, the last being the author of the very complete history of Butler borough embraced in Chapters XXI, XXII and XXIII. The biographical sketch of Gen. Richard Butler, in Chapter VI, in whose honor the county and seat of justice were named, was contributed by Dr. William H. Egle, State Librarian, who also furnished the print from which we engraved the title page portrait of that distinguished patriot."

There is a further list of those who rendered assistance, but without further information. But is perhaps worth repeating the statement that:

"The .... personal and family biography .... data .... were obtained from the individuals and families to whom they relate. .... In nearly every instance the [resulting] sketch was submitted to the subject or family for correction."
