Hi Larry - I have a Wm. MEDLAND b 1843 prob. Marhamchurch, Cornwall, England as that is where his father, James was b 1798.James marr. 1830, there, Anna MILL b c 1801 Eng.They had other children:Ann, James, Judith, Sarah, and Thos.Have you any idea where your Wm. was from??? or do any names fit??James father was also James b 1765.
I have no further info on Wm. to know if he immigrated or not but a grandson of James b 1765, Thomas B. Medland b 1825, migrated to Wayne Co., PA c 1854 (my line).An 1871 Eng. census says James b 1798 was a farmer so could have raised horses.
