Notes for Silas McCarty
The following information is transcribed from "The Descendants of James Carrell and Sarah Dungan, His Wife", by author Ezra Patterson Carrell, R929.2qC31 pub. 1928 - pages 39, and 40.
"The author of the Lancaster Family History suggests that the Pennsylvania McCartys are of the MacCarthy family which was dominant in Desmond (South Munster), Ireland, for the period when surnames were established down to the reign of Henry VIII. The surname being derived from Carthach, who was born 969 A. D., the name being variously modernized.
Harland McCarty of Dushore, Pa., a descendant of Silas McCarty, while serving in the World War, was stationed at Queenstown, Ireland, and made the acquaintance of an old gentleman who called his attention to a "History of the McCarthy Clan in Ireland," from which he copied the following: --
"The Clan MacCaura or McCarthy were Lords of South Munster from the dawn of history. They were wealthy and powerful. There are records of intermarriages between them and the principal Kings of Europe. There were three main branches of the family. First MacCarthy Riagh, Kings of Cork, the last of whom died in the reign of William the 3d, after being driven from his home, Blarney Castle.
There is a monument to his memory at Knockred (Kings Hill), about a mile and a half from the City of Cork, on the road to Blackrock. They were owners of Timoleague and Killerittain and other castles.
The second branch was that of MacCarthy Mor (the Great), who was created Earl of Clanaar by Queen Elizabeth. His possessions were mainly in the County of Kerry. The chief residence was Pallas, near Killarney. They had many other castles, viz.: Castlelough, near the Lake Hotel Killarney; Bally MacCarhery, near Valesicia, and Castlemain, on the River Main in Kerry.
The last chieftain died in 1760.
The third branch, and the wealthiest, though not the most powerful, was the MacCarthys of Muskerry, whose descendants still live north of Cork. One of these was created Earl of Mount Cashel by one of the Kings of France. their chief seat was Muskerry Castle, in the North of Cork County. " (Harland McCarty).
The McCarty Family was founded in Bucks County by Cornelius McCarty of Middletown, and Silas and Edward McCarty of Haycock, all doubtless natives of Ireland, and all born about, or shortly prior to, the year 1700. An effort has been made to show that these three were brothers, and sons of one John McCarty, of Piscataway, New Jersey, who was married, 7th mo. 9, 1684, by New York marriage license, etc., to Ann Harman, of Woodbridge, New Jersey; but it has not been successful though it is probable that these three, with Dennis McCarty of Middletown, Monmouth County, New Jersey, and one or two others of record at about the same time, were children of John and Ann (Harman) McCarty.
The McCartys of New Jersey and Pennsylvania were doubltless descendants of the Earls of Clan Carty, who were driven out of Ireland and dispossessed of their large estates under William of Orange in 1690.
Silas McCarty, born about the year 1700, was the ancestor of the McCarty family of Richland, with whom this narrative is concerned. He took up a tract of 350 acres in what became later Haycock Township, just over the line of the present Richland Township, adjoining the Logan tract on the west, the Bryan tract on the south, and the Jacob Strawn tract on the east.
The patent for this tract of land from John, Thomas and Richard Penn to Silas McCarty is dated 1 mo. 3, 1737/8, but he was probably located there under a proprietary warrant of survey for some years prior to that date.
He died siezed of this land in the year 1750, leaving a will dated January 3, 1749/50, probated on May 1, 1750, which devised to his wife Sarah his plantation for life, then to all his children, his son Carrell excepted. To this son Carrell he gave 100 acres off the end of his plantation. To the congregation of Baptists he devised a plot of one acre on the east side of his plantation "where a Meeting House stands." This was near the village long known as Strawntown, where a much neglected Baptist burying-ground is still in existence."
Children of Silas and Sarah (Carrell) McCarty were, Carrell, James, Silas, Benjamin, Lydia, Elizabeth, Hannah, William, Thomas and Paul. (1723 thru 1744). I only have Thomas in this family tree, but anyone interested in other siblings can pursue via the book listed above as well as "The Lancaster Family", by Harry Fred Lancaster. Page 289.
