Marriage of Henry and Elizabeth, 9 5m 1771:
Henry migrated to the frontier region of Western PA, Washington County, on the bank of the Monongahela River. The timing isn't precise, but the birth record of his son Simon lists Washington PA late 1780. The family of his brother Joshua are also recorded here at same time, along with others from the Chester, or Lancaster PA quaker communities. There are records that his cousins the Allens migrated at the same time to same favorable location.

"The monthly meeting was transferred to Western Quarterly Meeting in 1758. In 1760, its name was changed to "Kennett". At the time of the Hicksite Separation of 1827, the monthly meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches.
"Kennett Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) was discontinued in 1939, and most of its members were transferred to New Garden Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) in West Grove, Pa."
