Notes:

[1]Elected.
[2]According to a History of Lycoming County, there were several islands in the Susquehanna River which runs through the county. Over time, many of these islands just washed away. The biggest of these islands was called Bailey's Island, but the term Big Island is used in an early election return as a voting district..
[3]Potter County was created in 1804 from Lycoming County and remained attached "to Lycoming County until 1814 when it was authorized to elect commissioners jointly with McKean County. McKean and Potter Counties were separated in 1824, but Potter was still attached to McKean for judicial purposes. It was fully organized in 1835."
