Do you know of Amasa ???

When we encounter a name that is new to us, we add it to our Gazetteer - that's the case with Amasa.

This entry has been created as a placeholder - we hope to develop more information in the future.

This entry could be in error. It might be that our source had a mis-print, was simply wrong or we made a transcription error while referencing it. We hope to learn more about Amasa in the future.

We found mention of Amasa as a post office, but can't determine its location - other than being located somewhere in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.

It's common that the post office is named the same as the community in which it's located (although that's not always case). In this case, we can't match this post office to any of the communities in our gazetteer.

The earliest mention that we've found of Amasa was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide dated 1895 (see the 'Miscellaneous References' section below).
