Nick Name Susquehanna
Earliest Known Date May 1865 -- No Later than May 1865
Location Wilkes-Barre, PA, United States

The Susquehanna Club of Wilkes-Barre PA is listed in Peverelly [1866]. It may well have formed earlier.

In fact, a 1915 newspaper account of the May 1865 birth of Scranton PA's Wyoming BBC [see separate entry] mentions that that club's first opponent was the Susquehanna Club of nearby Wilkes-Barre PA. No further detail appear.

The The Spalding Scrapbook, NYPL, has a clipping citing the Luzerne Union of Wilkes-barre, Aug. 30, 1865, reporting an Aug. 26th game between the two nines of the Susquehanna BBC. Colonel James Rutter was one of the players.
