County Londonderry, Northern Ireland
*Andrew Dunlap was brought to the United States from County Derry, Ireland, when he was two years old, the journey taking thirteen weeks in a sailing vessel, and the family eventually settled in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Besides Andrew, the youngest, the children were: Thomas; James; William; Jane and Nancy, twins, who lived to old age and never married; and Mollie, who married a Mr. Stewart, of Washington Township, Westmoreland County, who went to serve as a substitute for Andrew Dunlap during the war of 1812, and never returned.
Andrew Dunlap secured his education in a log schoolhouse situated at Warren (now Apollo) Pennsylvania and during his earlier years his home was a little log cabin. On reaching manhood, he settled on a tract of 200 acres on which he built a home and sawmill, on Beaver Run. In addition to farming and lumbering, Mr. Dunlap followed teaming, hauling iron ore from Bellefonte to Pittsburg, with a six-horse team, it being necessary for him to carry about fifty bushels of oats for feed. Later he sold his first farm and removed to Harrisville, Butler County, there purchasing another tract of 200 acres and continuing to engage in farming and stock raising until his death, which occurred when he was eighty years of age. Mr. Dunlap was laid to rest in the United Presbyterian Church Cemetery at Harrisville. He married Mary Polly Robinson, daughter of William Robinson who lived near the Salem Church in Westmoreland County, in 1821 and she died in 1840.
They had the following Children:
John, who married Anna Elizabeth Cook, of Butler County; Rebecca, who married Andrew Dunlap, of Butler County; Nancy Jane, who married James Davis, and resided in Illinois;
William Robinson Dunlap,
Andrew and Eliza, twins, the former of whom married Harriet Trump, and the latter who married Thomas L. Morris and died in Butler County, and James Perry, who is living at Harrisville.
