Allegheny (titular see)
The Diocese of Allegheny was created from the Diocese of Pittsburgh on 11 January 1876, and Bishop Michael Domenec appointed as its ordinary. The new diocese had 8 counties, with an area of 6530 sq. miles, leaving the parent diocese 6 counties, and an area of 4784 sq. miles. When Bishop Domenec died, the see was suppressed as a residential diocese. Its territory was reunited with the diocese of Pittsburgh.
In Latin, the see is known as Dioecesis Alleghenensis, the Diocese of Allegheny.
The titular bishops of Allegheny have been:
- George Leo Leech (1971–1985)
- Edward Egan (1985–1988)
- Patrick Joseph McGrath (1988–1998)
- Robert Joseph McManus (1998–2004)
