If you are researching a family of Wyoming Valley, PA you might also look at the three volume set called “Connecticut’s Pennsylvania Colony Vol 1-3” by Donna Bingham Munger. It is an index.
Yes, I had to Google it to see where the Wyoming Valley was located. I had never heard of it! It wasn't (isn't) close, but I bet it made the western settlers very nervous!

On July 3, 1778 400 men left fort Jenkins to avenge the ambush of three members of the Harding family tending their fields. They ran into an army of Tories,
British Rangers and Senecas three times their number and were killed in what was known as the Wyoming Massacre. After that many surviving settlers left the
frontier and their property for safety. This took place in the Wyoming Valley of PA.
