I think parents attached are error. Timeline does not make sense along with no sources to prove.

Anyone have source of parentage? I have never found any definitive proof over years. I find it unlikely that Thomas McCreary and Sarah Edwards were parents based on location and birthdates of other children.

Looked for parents name and did not find them.

George McCreary was born in 1752 in the County of Armagh, province of Ulster, Ireland. While a resident of York County, PA, he volunteered on 5/1/1776 and served  as a private in Captain Gilliland's Company under Colonel Reed in the Pennsylvania Milita. He was soon promoted to Sargeant and marched to New Jersey, joining the Flying Camp at Elizabeth, New Jersey. He was in one or two skirmishes with the British and then was stationed at Fort Washington under Colonel Magaw. After the Battle of Fort Washington on 11/16/1776, he became one of nearly 3,000 British prisoners-of-war. He was held for 2 months n a British man-of-war and was released on parole in early January, 1777.

After his service in the Revolutionary War he lived in York County, PA for about 11 years and married Mary McQuoin.  Find A Grave   familysearch.org
