Here's another tidbit I overlooked the first time:


1767 Assessment;
Tyrone Twp.
Name # of Acres

John Darlington 300

Source: History of That Part of The Susquehanna and Juniata Valleys, Embraced in The Counties of Mifflin, Juniata, Perry, Union and Snyder in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; Volume II; Philadelphia; Everts, Peck & Richards; 1886; Page 963.

In the 1880 Census, Wilson indicated that his father had been born in Pennsylvania. Based on the 1767 date above, Meredith could have been born in Ireland and come to Pennsylvania as a baby. Since he wouldn't have needed to be naturalized in any event, it doesn't matter too much either way, but I am curious to know what documentation points to Ireland as the place of origin for this branch of Darlingtons.
