 Created on March 21, 1772, from parts of Berks, Bedford, Cumberland, Lancaster and Northampton Counties. It probably was named for the English county of the same name. Sunbury, the county seat was laid out in 1772, incorporated as a borough on March 24, 1797, and became a city in 1921. It was named for an English village near London.

Tammy Clark (1964-2014)
Tammy was first with us from 2008 to 2011, hosting Columbia, Montour and Northumberland counties in PA. Due to ill health, she left the group, but when feeling better, joined our transcription team and then took her Northumberland county site back in Nov. 2013. She had let us know that she was sick again and was on "medical leave" from our group and we found out that she had passed away on Dec 9, 2014. We will miss her dedication and hard work - not only for her own sites but for the data she contributed to all of Genealogy Trails.
