Where can I find records for Bedford?
In probate records of Loudoun County, Virginia (1803-1806), an estate adminintrator, is identified as Joseph West of Bedford. The same Joseph West dies in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. Neither the Bedford County in Virginia, nor the one in Pennsylvania seem to be in close proximity. There is also an old village of Bedford. Does anyone know where I can locate records of this village in Pennsylvania.
