Descendants of David McWhirter and Mary Posten, Volume 2 [cloth]


The McWhorters originally came from the lowlands of Scotland. "Some immigrated to America directly from Scotland and others, more circuitously, from Scotland by way of North Ireland along with the thousands of other Scotch-Irish settlers." Hugh and Jean McWhirter (believed to be the immigrant ancestors of David McWhirter) emigrated from County Armagh to New Castle, Delaware, in 1735. One of their sons, possibly John McWhirter of Marsh Creek, Pennsylvania, was the father of David McWhirter.

Volume II is devoted to the children of David and Mary McWhirter; the family of Hugh and Jean McWhorter of New Castle; with additional documentation, Bible records and photos.
