Birth: Jun. 10, 1703, Ireland
Death: 1799

Bucks County

According to the "History of Bucks County, PA" by William H. Davis, Robert Barnhill, an early settler of Bedminster, is buried in the Deep Run Presbyterian Cemetery. Two of his sons, Samuel & John, married daughters of Daniel Craig, and a daughter married Archibald Finley, Jr., all of Bucks County. Robert Barnhill arrived from Ireland in 1734 at about the same time as the Finleys. Robert and his sons bought and sold several tracts of land. To a degree, they were "money loaners". Another son, William, was involved in tavernkeeping before moving to South Carolina. John later moved to Philadelphia becoming a merchant where he also established and operated a stage line known as the "Flying Machine". Samuel sold his lands in Bucks County, and purchased lands in Cumberland County where he lived several years before moving further west to Washington County. While it is not known when Robert died, it is believed that it was sometime in the mid to late 1760's.
