A- Pennsylvania Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Alamingo. A village of hostile Delawares(?) in 1754, probably on Susquehanna r., Pa.; possibly the people of Allemoebi, the “king” of the Delawares, who lived at Shamokin about 1750 (Drake Trag. Wild., 153, 1841).

Atrakwaye (probably ‘at the place of the sun’, or south). A palisaded town of the Conestoga, situated in 1608 on the E. side of Susquehanna r. , below the forks at Northumberland, in Northumberland co., Pa. Probably identical with the Quadroque of Smith’s map of Virginia, whereon it is placed from information derived by Smith directly from the Susqnehanna (Conestoga). The Journal of the Jesuits for 1651-52 states that during the winter of 1652 this town was taken by 1,000 Iroquois warriors who, with a loss of 130 men, carried away 500 or 600 captives, chiefly men. Atrakwaye was the seat of the Akhrakouaeronon, a division of the Conestoga. (.T. N. B. H. )

Attaock. A Conestoga village existing in 1608 w. of Susquehanna r. , probably in what is now York co., Pa. Smith (1608), Virginia, I, map, repr. 1819.

Attique. A village, probably of the Seneca, that stood in 1749 on the present site of Kittanning, Pa.
