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:
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.
