 The Western Pennsylvania historical magazine, Volumes 5-6. By Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania. When the Ohio Company was formed 1748 Col Cresap was secured to open a trail from Cumberland to head waters of the Monongahela Cresap secured for important work the services of Nemacolin who blazed trail and cut away all fallen timber and this trail marks significant milestone in the transportation of the Monongahela Valley. So well did this wonderful Indian Nemacolin do the task assigned to him that Nemacolin's Path later became the pack horse route and over this came thousands of tons of freight costing about $150 a ton to transport as against $1.30 a ton now seven to ten cents a pound the prevailing rates. Salt iron nails etc were carried thus and hides feathers etc went east.  These pack horse drivers were very interesting characters. Each driver handled eight or ten horses. Each horse carried about 800 pounds burden over his shoulders each horse carried a wooden half hoop in the center of which hung a bell that was silent by day but when the horses were turned loose at the end of the day tinkled the night long to notify the driver where to look for his beasts in the morning. These pack horses streamed over the mountains in endless cavalcades but in 1774 Conrad Hawk drove a wagon over the mountains and this event also marks a significant milestone in early transportation in the Mononogahela River Valley. Soon the freight was all sent over in wagons dispensing with the services of the pack horse drivers who went on a strike destroyed the bridges and wagons and sometimes even the freight showing that labor troubles and strikes are no recent conception.

  Pennsylvania, colonial and federal: a history, 1608-1903, Volume 2. By Pennsylvania Historical Publishing Association. While the people of Pittsburgh were with great spirit endeavoring to build up their trade with the West and the Southwest they were much harassed by the difficulties which attended the development of their communication with the East. When Braddock and Forbes cut their way across the mountains the one from Cumberland, Maryland the other from Bedford, Pennsylvania, they opened paths which served the packmen for the transportation of goods. The first wagon from the East was driven into Pittsburgh by Conrad Hawk a teamster with the army of General Forbes. But for many years after that trains of pack horses were more frequently used for conveyance than wheeled vehicles.
