  1. John ap Thomas is named as Cadwalader Jones' father by Futhey & Cope but Bob McKeon has concluded that Cadwalader's father was John ap Cadwalader.
  2. Thomas Mendenhall and Joan Strode/Stroud had nine children, two of whom (Benjamin and Mary) are ancestors of Dorothy Elizabeth McDowell. Benjamin Mendenhall's great-granddaughter, Hannah Mendenhall, married Mary Mendenhall's great-grandson, Jacob Pusey so Hannah and Jacob were third cousins.
  3. Moses St. John and Mercy Olmstead were first cousins.

  • Joshua Pusey (1738 - 1804) - Private, Chester County Militia, American Revolution
    Joshua would likely be appalled to be listed among my militant ancestors.
    As a Quaker, he fervently believed in pacifism. Being wealthy and a leading citizen, he was appointed by his Monthly Meeting to the 'Committee of Conference', a Quaker organization created during the Revolution to aid those 'under trial and suffering', and to 'encourage and sustain members to withold their aid and support of the war'.
    Although Joshua was drafted into the local militia, there is no evidence that he ever attended muster. He may or may not have paid the consequent fines and may or may not have received redress after the war.
    Regardless of the exact details, Joshua was not a soldier and was firmly in the 1/3 of Americans who attempted to stay out of the conflict between loyalists and patriots.
