Missing Sign. Can You Help?

“SHENANGO TOWN
Wyandot and Delaware Indian town on nearby riverbanks about 1750-1785 under control of Seneca Iroquois, of whom a few bands remained in this region until about 1812”

South of West Middlesex on PA Route 18, there was a Historical Marker posted in 1947 celebrating Shenango Town which was an Indian Village on the river. This sign has been missing/misplaced over the years. Complicating the issue is the fact that there was another town laid out in the early 1800’s named Shenango at the “Big Bend” between Mercer and Clark in the Shenango River. We have no idea of where the above mentioned sign might be. Do you? We would like to replace this sign. Can you help us? Someone must know something.
