Marion township is in the northeastern part of the county. It is bounded on the north by Franklin township,
with the Conoquenessing separating the two, on the east by Jackson township in Butler County, on the south by New
Sewickley, and on the west by North Sewickley in Beaver County. Brush Creek flows through it just within its western
boundary. There are no other streams of importance in the township. In soil and geological characteristics it is
much like its neighboring townships; good coal is mined in various places, and there are the usual limestone, sandstone,
and slate formations common to the region round about.
