Joseph McFarland

Joseph McFarland was a signer of the petition to organize Tinicum Township. His father, Robert McFarland, 1675-1740, born in County Tyrone, Ireland received a land grant from William Penn. He had three sons: Robert, Joseph and William. I believe this information to be correct for my paternal lineage:

  1. Robert McFarland 1675-1740 born Ireland
  2. Joseph McFarland 1711-1759 born Ireland
  3. John McFarland 1741-1797 born Tinicum Township, Bucks County, Penn.
  4. Robert McFarland 1771-1834 born Penn., Tinicum Township, Bucks County (?)
  5. Ezekiel McFarland 1816-1881 born Coshocton County, Ohio
  6. John McFarland 1857-1936
  7. Ulysses McFarland 1880-1944
  8. Lewis McFarland 1909-1996
  9. Dean McFarland 1936-1984 (my father)

John McFarland, son of Joseph, shows up in the 1780 census under Bucks County. Anyway, I am trying to find out the wife's surnames for (1) Robert, (2) Joseph, (3) John. I believe the Tinicum Presbyterian Church may have records for marriages, births, etc.

Kindly submitted: Deanna McFarland

Joseph McFarland - Died November 6, 1759, in the 55th year of his age. The Stewart burying-ground, known locally as Bunker Hill Cemetery, and near which he believes to have been the site of the first Tinicum Presbyterian Church, (of which the church at Red Hill is the successor,) is located in Tinicum township 2 1/2 miles, in a direct line northeast from Ottsville, and one mile, in a direct line, southeast from Revere.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (1864) 2nd Inaugural

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
