1700s - Looking for parents of Charles Timmons husband of Mary Magdalena Forney

Clarification: Charles Timmons had a son named Charles Timmons.  I am looking for the parents of the elder of these two.  The parents in question were likely born in the 1730s (possibly 1720s).  If the errant guess someone had indicating he was born in 1775, then it is possible his parents were born as late as the early 1750s.

I have hit a brick wall.   I have been looking for the parents of Charles (possible middle initial M) Timmons (possibly Timmins, Timmonds or McTimmons).   He was the husband of Mary Magdalena "Polly" Forney.   I can find lots of genealogical history on his wife and descendants (Abraham, Eli, William, Charles [Jr], Catherine, Frederick, Emanuel, Benjamin, Samuel and Forney) but keep getting stuck going back up the Timmons past Charles Timmons.   I have documented all I know (or think I know) in WikiID Timmons-907.  I have restarted researching the family several times over the years and each time I encounter the same roadblock.  I have also encountered many relatives doing research who are stuck the same place.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

I have corresponded with descendants of multiple different children of Charles Timmons who have all hit the same brick wall so I am not alone in this request.

Update: My BigY500 test results came back in late November 2018 and it seems likely his parents were from Ireland or Scotland BUT I STILL HAVE NOT A CLUE WHO THEY ARE.

Thanks Wayne.   However, I am looking for the PARENTS of Charles Timmons who was likely born 12 Jan 1751 and was married to Mary Forney.
Still looking with absolutely no success.  I have pretty much  given up.
15 months later and his parents are still missing in action.  I HATE brick walls.....

That Mary Simmons is the wife (maiden name Mary Forney) of Charles Timmons who was living with their child Benjamin in that Census.  I am looking for the FATHER of Charles Timmons.  As an added note, there is also a son of Charles Timmons named Charles Timmons.  I am looking for the parents of the elder of the two.
