* Until the adoption of the new constitution in 1873, the term of office was one year. Members were elected the year previous to date shown.

** Of the above mentioned president judges Nathaniel B. Eldred, Rasselas Brown, Samuel P. Johnson, Glenni W. Scofield, Lansing D. Wetmore, and William D. Brown were the only ones who resided in Warren county, and all are yet living in the town of Warren, Pa., with the exception of the first named, who died years ago. See biographical sketch.

*** In a previous chapter, we believe No. 14, it is intimated that probably all of the principal officers of the county at its organization, were appointed; but since that paragraph was written and printed we have become firm in the belief that the first county commissioners, at least, were elected by the people. Still, as there stated, no election returns or other evidence have been found to determine the matter.

(4*) During the years prior to 1848 the prothonotary served as register and recorder.

(5*) Until the revision of the State constitution in 1897, justices of the peace were commissioned for an indefinite period, or "during good behavior."
