business' as well as his religious career was begun in New-
ville. At the age of eighteen ^ears he opened a hat store
there and at the same age united with the Big Spring
Presbyterian church. In 1832 he rode over the mount-
ains to western Pennsylvania, thence to Indiana and
Illinois, with the view of locating in a pros-
perous community. Finding no place that proved satisfac-
tory, he left Fort Dearborn (now Chicago), returned to
Pittsburg, and began his mercantile life, which continued
uninterrupted until he retired in 1867. In 1833 he opened
a house in Pittsburg for the hat trade in connection with the
sale of fur. In the first few years of its existence, he was in
partnership with two friends. In 1847 he and a younger
brother James S. McCord, took control of the business,
under the name of McCord and Company. He was active in
all lines of enterprise, director in several banks in Pittsburg,
one of the original incorporators of Allegheny Cemetery,
the last survivor of its first board of directors, a member of
the first Presbyterian church of Pittsburg, superintendent
of the Sunday school for ten years, trustee of the congrega-
tion for twenty- four years, and a ruling elder from 1855
until he left the city in 1867, and took up his resi-
dence in Philadelphia. He united with the Spruce Street
Presbyterian church, under the ministry of Rev. William
P. Breed, D. D., was made a ruling elder in 1870, a trustee
in 1872, and so continued until his death. He was a
member of the Board of Domestic Missions, a member of
the Board of Publication and Sunday School Work, a mem-
ber of the Presbytery's committee of church extension, treas-









I— I



urer of the Presbyterian Hospital niitil 1891, and an inter-
ested worker in the temperance cause. He was a trustee
in the Western Theological Seminary at Allegheny, and
there is still an interest-bearing scholarship, which is greatly-
blessed. He was six times a. commissioner to the General
Assembly of the Presbyterian church. His business ability
and accuracy were pronounced traits and strong forces in
his character, and he was frequently called upon to act as
executor in the settlement of estates, and accepted guardian-
ships in a number of instances. His methodical manner in
his transactions with those who besought his counsel and
assistance, his integrity and steadfast principles in the ad-
ministration of justice, rendered him a power for good.
He is buried in the Allegheny cemetery at Pittsburg.

James Quigley, the first ancestor of whom we have
knowledge, came to this country from Ireland in 1730, and
took up four hundred acres of land, in what was later
Hopewell township, Cumberland Co., Penna. At Ouigley's
Bridge, within a stone's throw of the Conodoguinet Creek,
he built his home, and for five generations his descendants
have inherited and lived there.' ' Though still in possession
of the family, the house is not the one made sacred by the
work of his hands, for in 1841 it was replaced by a large
brick dwelling, which is still in a good state of preservaton.
The spot is beautiful. The creek winds in graceful curves
towards the Susquehanna river, with here and there a
grassy island dotting its sparkling surface; and a few miles
to the north, across the fertile stretches of the valley, a
range of mountains known as the North or Kittatinny,
rises above the sloping hills, and traces its outlines on the
sky. The creek and the mountains are the sole survivors of
time, since those early days when James Quigley erected
his house of logs in the forest; rowed his birch bark boat
along the stream, scanning the edges of the distant hills for
the face of a redskin, lest in his absence they reduce his
home to ashes and take his loved ones captive.

Of his wife, Jeanette, we have nothing but tradition to
point to her Scottish parentage, her name Jeannette bearing
the sweetest impress of her country. We are assured she
was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a wise counselor,
or she would not have given to the world such brave and
illustrious children. In 1738 the house of worship at Mid-
dle Spring was dedicated, three miles from the homestead.
James Quigley and his wife were members and faithful


attendants, and with their children are buried in the old
graveyard, which surrounded the original log church where
on the twenty-seventh of September, 1900,. their descend-
ants erected a monument to the memory of their ancestors,
who took part in the Colonial and Revolcitionary service
and with their wives lay for many years m unmarked
graves James Quigley not only proved himself a warrior
in keeping the Indians from his own door, but was m active
service, commissioned ensign, March 25, 1756, "^Rev-
John Steele's company of Cumberland County Colonia
Rano-ers, and in Revolutionary service, private in Colonel
Robert Adams' company, Sixth battalion. He died m
1782. His will reads:

"To dear and loving wife, all my stock of cows and
horses, to be disposed of at her pleasure. I also allow her a
comfortable maintainence out of my real estate all her life.
