Gwynn, I have gotten a lot of information regarding 1730 era people though Egles Notes and Queries and Egles biographies Google books has a lot of excerpts online and a lot of libraries carry the volumes in their reference departments

The McConnell family is well documented back to the mid 1700s when"immigrant" George McConnell came to America and settled in Pennsylvania, married, and later moved to southwest Virginia. An annual reunion is held in June in Nickelsville, VA. where McConnell and related families from around the country gather to share family stories, pictures and spend time with their "Cousins".

I'm researching John McConnell who served in the Revolution from Virginia. Have been unable to locate anything more about him or family going back.

Please add any surnames you're are researching in colonial Pa. I not only have the Laird family but most of the siblings and children's families.
