4 — Elizabeth Thomson, horn ; died . On

she married Robert McAlistcr (l>orn ; died May 26,



1828; probably buried in Tuscarora Valley, Juniata County, Pa.), son of

HurH and Sarah (Nelson) McAlistcr and grandson of Hugh and

(Harbison) McAlistcr, Scotch protcstants, who came from Ireland to
America in 1732, settling in Lancaster County, Pa. See 34. 56 and 6.
The will of Hugh McAlistcr, Sr., was dated Apr. 19, 1769, and probated
Aug. 15, I76f;, at Carlisle, Pa. Hugh McAlistcr, Jr. (born 1736 in Lan-
caster County, I'a. ; died Sept. 22, 1810) joined the forces of Forbes in
the F-'rench and Indian War. He ser\cd as sergeant, lieutenant and cap-
tain in the army of the Revolution, and was commissioned major of the
Seventh llattalion of the Militia in Cumberland County, Pa., May i,
17S3. See "History of the Susquehanna and Juniata Valleys in Pennsyl-
vania," pp. 123 and 834. After their marriage, Robert and Elizabeth
(Thomson) McAllister settled at Nook, in Tuscarora \'alley, in Juniata
Ct)Uiily, Pa., where doubtless he and she died and were buried, although
their graves have not been located. From May 5 to Nov. 5, 1813,
Robert Mc.Mister served as corporal in Captain Matthew Rodger's Com-
pany of Pennsylvania Militia belonging to the regiment commanded by
Colonel Reese Hill. Robert and Elizabeth (Thomson) McAlister died

5 — Robert Thomson, born ; died on the farm three miles

below Thompsontown, Pa., on the Juniata River. Doubtless he was the
Robert Thompson of Fermanagh Township, in what is now Juniata
County, Pa., whose will dated Feb. 24, 1787, and probated April 5, 1787,
at Carlisle, Pa., gives his estate to his son William (51), a minor, and
other minor children and to his wife — not mentioned by name. He
appointed as his executors his wife and David Boal — probably the hus-
band of his sister Susanna (7). This will is recorded in Cumberland
County Will Book E. P. 105. It was witnessed by Gerard Ferrill ;
Samuel Willy, possibly a relative of the husband of his sister Jean
Thomson (2) ; and Thomas Palley, probably the person who witnessed
the will of Pioneer John Thomson. Robert Thompson was taxed on a
saw-mill in Fermanagh Township, Juniata County, Pa., in 1785-6, the
two years preceding his death. He may or may not have been the
Robert Thompson who served as a private in Captain John Clarke's
company of Associators of Northumberland County in 1776. In this
company was William Greenlee, presumably the husband of his sister
Mary Thomson (i). Robert Thompson married Sarah Mitchell, a sister
to Jane Mitchell who married William Thompson (3). By some the
father of Sarah and Jane Mitchell was said to have been David Mitchell
of Chestnut Level, Lancaster County, Pa., and by others James Mitchell
of Cumberland County, Pa. A certain David Mitchell whose will — wit-
nessed by William Mitchell — was dated 1756, Chestnut Level, Lancaster
County, Pa., left children Samuel, Jean, Abram, Margaret Eleanor, Sarah,
George and David. He may have been a son or a brother of John
Mitchell of Drumore Township, Lancaster County, Pa., who died in
1759 leaving sons Samuel, William, John, George and David. See "Notes
and Queries," Vol. Ill, Third Series, by W. H. Egle, page 483. It is
possible that John Mitchell who came from Ireland to Lancaster County,
Pa., served as colonel of the Cumberland Militia at Lancaster, and died
about 1785 in what is now Perry County, was of this family.
See "History of Susquehanna and Juniata Valleys in Pennsylvania," p.
1 130. According to Robert Thompson (35), son of William and Jane
(Mitchell) Thompson, his mother was a daughter of "James Mitchell
of Cumberland Valley, near Chambersburg." According to Hugh Nelson
McAllister (343) grandson of Jane (Mitchell) Thompson, she "was
born within one mile of Strasbury, now Franklin (then Cumberland)
County. Her father was killed by the Indians in a harvest field during
the French and Indian War (1754-60) near what is now called St.
Thomas, seven miles west of Chambersburg." Among the early land
titles in Letterkenny Township, in which Strasburg is located was one
granted July 10, 1752, to James Mitchell. Joseph and William Mitchell
also owned land there in 1754. Among the persons killed by Indians in



BRANCH NO. 5 I55

a harvest field near Shippensburg on July 19, 1757, were James, Joseph
and William Mitchell. It is not improbable that the father of Jane and
Sarah was James rather than David Mitchell and that he was of the
Lancaster County Mitchells who were progenitors of many of the
Mitchell families throughout the Cumberland Valley. See No. 3. Chil-

first brick houses in this section of Pennsylvania, the bricks for its
construction having been made on his own farm — see "Biographical

United Presbyterian Church. He was twice married. His first wife
