I was wondering if anyone could help me with this puzzle?
My ancestor was definitely John Wisehart or Wishard born in Ireland about 1725. I once mistakenly thought that George Wishard of Scotland was his father, however I have been corrected. Our John immigrated to Pennsylvania USA in or about 1740 something. Here, he married Agnes Hilton, daughter of Edward, sister of David. The Hiltons were also from Ireland.
I have done some research and may have found something. A William Wisehart, born in Scotland circa 1665 fled to Ireland with about 100 other ppl. He married, I think, an Elizabeth on November 15, 1687 and they seemed to have had a son, John.
I am thinking that this John may be the father of John born circa 1725.
Does anyone know anything about this? I have several Wishart/Wisehart contacts that are very anxious to hear any info someone may have.
