In doing family history, I've come across Hamilton Township, Monroe, PA and Hamilton Township, Northampton, PA. The dates are around 1780-1810. Could anyone tell me which county is correct for that period of time?

Monroe County was created on April 1, 1836, from parts of Northampton and Pike Counties and named for President James Monroe.
I pulled this from the Monroe County PA website. Maybe it helps.
I know there currently no Hamilton Township Northamton County and there is a Hamliton Township Monroe County which sits on the Northamton County line roughly Due North of Pen Argyl, PA.
