From the county records of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and from various other sources, it has been learned that there were a number of families, bearing the name of McCormick, residing in that county and its vicinity, prior to 1750.
Although no relationship has been traced between them, yet they were doubtless all of the same stock, as a North of Ireland nativity and a Presbyterian faith were common to them all.
John and Samuel McCormick paid taxes in East Pennsboro Township in 1750. They were near neighbors of Thomas McCormick (1st), and may have been his brothers, but this relationship is only a matter of surmise.
The name of John McCormick, with forty others, is also found signed to a document, bearing date June 27, 1768, guaranteeing to Rev. John Steel, " then minister at the Silvers Spring Church," his yearly stipend.
This John McCormick died in 1782, and his widow, Jane, in 1788. From her will it appears that they had five children, namely : John, Margaret, who married Hugh Quigley, Elizabeth, who became Mrs. Adams, and two daughters whose names are unknown.
This book mainly concerns itself with James McCormick's descendants: beginning with sons Hugh and Thomas.
Allied families with varying amounts of data include: McChesney, McClung, McClure, Sanderson and Elliott.
