Quentin Your discussion reminded me what I was doing 2 years ago....yes I had thought my Cunninghams might be Quakers since my Eleanor Maxwell (d/o Ann Cunningham Maxwell) married Daniel Kenny 1798 with records in Uwchlan MM and other Qualer records. When I found the 2 Ann Maxwells in Ireland associated with the Quakers and the Milhous and Lightfoot families...I felt sure I was close to finding mine. Same when I found Anne daughter of Patrick Cunningham and Sarah Tomey especially when they were from around Londonderry.... Then found Thomas Milhous died 1770 in Pikeland Twp, chester Co, Pa.....therefore there seems to been some kind of relationship !!!!! ...fellow Quakers, acquaintance family friend from Ireland or??? I just havent been able to prove it!!! I think Thomas Milhous sponsored Ann Cunningham and her neice SEE BELOW
SNIPPET from CUNNINGHAM GENFORUM Posting
1. Ann Cunningham b ca1713 d 1796
Cunningham, Ann. E. Caln. 9-22-1796. Feb. 20, 1800. To nephew Richard Robinson 20 shillings, and to his wife, Hannah, my cloak, etc. To nephews William and Joseph Kinneson £10 each, to be paid at death of their mother. To Margaret, wife of Seamor Hart, to Samuel Hoopes and his sister Jane, and Sarah Coats, daughter of Samuel, articles named. Remainder to money for use of my sister Elizabeth Kinneson during life. To Elizabeth Robinson all remainder of estate. Executor: John Hoopes
There is a will in CC wills for Ann Cunningham (would be the niece b ca 1713) written 1796 proved 1800. She mentions her sister Elizabeth Kinnison. This Elizabeth is married to William Kinnison who is son of Edward Kinnison and Mary Greenway. Edward lived in Whiteland. William was Quaker, so there should be a marriage certificate
2. Ann Cunningham b ca 1680(aunt of above Ann Cunningham b ca 1713 d 1796)...the aunt Ann was transported to Pa in 1729 (see details below) by Thomas Milhous and wife Sarah Miller of New Garden MM and Uwchlan, Chester Co., Pa.- probably was indentured servant for same.
EARLY QUAKERS RECORDS:

Chesterfield MM is near Burlington NJ (the same area where the Marmaduke Coats family who moved to Bush River in SC. Edward Kinnison’s daughter Hannah married and moved to NC
I still think there is some kind of Cunningham connection between my Ann b ca 1742 (not exact estimate from husband)...and those others in Chester Co, PA w Thomas Milhous..... It seem there was some kind of need by the 2 Ann Cunninghams to immigrate fromIreland to America....serviing as indentured servant for Thomas Milhous. My guess is the father and or mother were deceased.....????
How was Richard Robinson a nephew to Ann Cunningham? I think Richard was married to Mary Cunningham (sister of Ann b 1713 and both d/o Patrick and Sarah)?????
I also dont have Richard Robinsons parents etc....
I dont know much about Ellenore Cunningham and husband James Nivens either!!! Again I think Ellenore was sister to PAtrick Cunningham/Sarah Tomey....my guess would be that Anne Cunningham b ca 1680 was probably another sibling.....the children of John Cunningham 1638-1705 m Ann UNKNOWN 1642 -1705.....
I have a report from a Quaker Historical Society in Ireland on the Cunninghams and Maxwells....stored away in a file cabinet. Don Maxwell firstname.lastname@example.org
