Peters Creek Historical Society welcomes Mr. Clay Kilgore, President of the Washington County Historical Society and Mr. Brian Cunning as guest speakers, Monday, August 23, at 7:30pm, Wrights United Methodist Church, 788 Venetia Road, Venetia, Pa. The program will focus on the Federal Militia and the Whiskey Rebellion, a subject of local history as reflected in early meetings held by local farmers with Albert Gallatin at Whiskey Point in Parkinson Ferry (Monongahela, Pa) and Mingo Meeting House in Finleyville, whose graveyard is the resting place of notable men of the times: Major James McFarland, John Holcroft (proported to be ‘Tom the Tinker’), Benjamin Parkinson and David Hamilton.
