Shared note

from History of Perry Co, PA by Hanin 1922

concerning whites found on indian land in Cumberland Co (now Perry Co) before 1754 "Some of these men went away peaceably, upon the promise that when the lands were purchased from the Indians they might re- turn to their claims, but others were morose and went to other sections. Among those to return were Richard Kirkpatrick and John McClure."

"The site of the old Sherman's Creek Church, near Shermans- dale, is marked by an old graveyard, on what is known as the Zeigler property, between Fio Forge and Dellville, and where tra- dition claims that the first white man buried in the county was laid. In it are interred ancestors of the Stewarts and Kirkpatricks,

of Duncannon."

"Richard Kirkpatrick, who was of Irish extraction, was one of the early settlers of Cumberland county, Pa., where he took up in 1751 a tract of land within 3 miles of the present site of Carlisle, Pa."
