Re: Aquilla Arrell Browne m. Sarah Ruth Cresap
Hope you are still checking this forum. If you are still searching, you have some incorrect information about Aquilla, which may have thrown your search off.
Aquilla Arrell Browne was born on January 26, 1770 in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and he died March 26, 1850 in Philadelphia. His wife Sarah Ruth Cresap was born October 23, 1777 on the north branch of the Potomac River, near Cresapsburg, Maryland and she died March 30, 1865 of old age (according to her death certificate)in the Fallsington section of Philadelphia. Both are buried in Monument Cemetery in Philadelphia.
Her parents were Daniel Cresap and Ruth Van Swevenger. His parents were John Browne (1739-1825) and Mary Arrell (1742-1823). They had 13 children together. John Browne's parents were Peter Browne (1700-1749) and his second wife, Priscilla Coats (died 1745). Mary Arrell's parents were William Arrell and Mary Maston (Matson). Priscilla Coats parents were William Coats and Mary Smith. Peter Browne's father whose name I think was Thomas Browne came here with William Penn's group in 1682. We do not know his wife's name and his first name is not proven.
