--------------- In the 1880 Census, Wilson indicated that his father had been born in Pennsylvania. Based on the 1767 date above, Meredith could have been born in Ireland and come to Pennsylvania as a baby. Since he wouldn't have needed to be naturalized in any event, it doesn't matter too much either way, but I am curious to know what documentation points to Ireland as the place of origin for this branch of Darlingtons.
