(7) 1724: Became the first pastor of Pequea United Presbyterian Church at White Horse, Lanc aster Co., PA. (12a) Rev. Adam BOYD was the first minister of Pequea Church, which was proba bly organized in 1724. (12b) In 1724, Mr. Adam BOYD, a licentiate from the Presbytery of Ne w Castle, was commissioned to collect a congregation at Pequea Church and take preliminary st eps towards its organization. He afterwards performed the same duty at Leacock. The congregat ion of Leacock was at first connected with Pequea. The regular place of preaching was at Pequ ea, with occasional services at Leacock.
(3) 1724, 13 Oct: Installed as the first regular pastor of Upper Octorara Church, Sadsbur y Twp., Chester Co., PA, 1 miles north of Parkesburg, which had been organized in 1720. (1,3 ) Was pastor for 44 years of the Upper Octorara Presbyterian Church, Sadsbury Twp., Chester C o., PA. (12c) From about 1715 to 1775, a great number of people for various reasons emigrate d to America from the north of Ireland, and quite a large part of these landed at Philadelphi a, Pa., and at New Castle, Del. From these points they spread north and west into and beyon d what is now Lancaster County. Part of these settled in the section of the county in which M iddle Octorara Church is now located. The portion of these adhering to the Presbyterian Churc h were probably first ministered to occasionally by Rev. David EVANS, who preached for a tim e as a supply at Upper Octorara, where a church was organized about 1720. The section of coun try now occupied by the Middle Octorara Church was then within the bounds of the Upper Octora ra Church. In 1724, Rev. Adam BOYD was ordained and installed first regular pastor at Upper O ctorara Church. About 1727 the families on the west side of Octorara Creek sought an organiza tion, and hence Middle Octorara Church was organized. They asked for one-third of Mr. BOYD' s time, promising towards his salary fifty pounds, but on account of the distance and the dem and for his services elsewhere he was directed to spend every sixth Sabbath at Middle Octorar a. This Mr. BOYD did, as a supply, until about 1730. Who preached for several years after Mr . BOYD ceased the writer has not been able to learn. On Nov. 18, 1735, Rev. Alexander CRAIGHE AD was ordained and installed as the first regular pastor of this church. What was the lengt h of his pastorate or who immediately succeeded him the writer has not been able to learn, a s he has no records of the church for forty years. Mr. CRAIGHEAD died in 1766, but he had lef t this church years before.
(3) Early in his pastorate the second church edifice, built of stone, was erected.
(12a) 1733, fall: Mr. BOYD was succeeded at the Pequea Church in the fall of 1733 by his fa ther-in-law, Rev. Thomas CRAIGHEAD. It is thought the first meeting house was built about thi s time.
