Thank you for you quick reply. I agree that the lineage of David Durling and Ann Pierce is well-established from their time to the present. I was aware that Fayette once lived in Westmoreland Co., but I was never able to connect him with other Durlings who lived there.
My own ancestry is well-established back to David Durlin, born in 1800 somewhere in PA. He went to Posey Co., IN when he was young, where he married Hannah Saltzman, who had come to Posey Co. from Butler Co., IN. From his associations in IN, it seems almost certain that David came from Butler Co. There was a John Durlin (various spellings in the tax records), who lived in Butler Co. in the early 1800s, and who is likely the J. Derlin in the 1810 Butler Co. census (others read the last name differently). There is not sufficient evidence to prove that this John Durlin was the same one who lived in Northumberland Co. in 1800. All I can say is that the ages and number of children in the 1800 and 1810 census reports make this a possibility, but this is not much to go on.
I mention all this in case you know something that might help me. I have been on a lot of rabbit trails trying to trace this David's ancestry.
