Am also searching Moorhead/Morehead/Muirhead. My family came to America from Belfast around 1740, that being John b abt.1712 Ulster, d.1775 Chester Co, PA(will proved.) John appears on 1751 tax role for Antrim Twps, Franklin Co, PA Other Moreheads in same area on different tax rolls, check out Cumberland Co, Franklin Co, Westmoreland Co.
Think my John born Ireland c 1712. If this is so, his father was John Moorhead b abt 1682 Ulster. His children were Robert, born in Clyde Valley Scotland,
Samuel born 1708 County Antrim (d. Feb 1787 Hamilton Twsp, Franklin Co, PA. married to Euphemia Fergus 1730 Belfast, she being born 1710 in Belfast, probably sister to Johns wife Barbara Fergus b Belfast.)
William b 1704 in County Down, Ulster.
Samuel, William, Robert and John received land warrants in Lancaster and York Counties, PA 1738-1748.
This information NOT documented but gleaned from several researcher sources, am trying to piece and document myself. Hope this helps. If info proves good, and you should find documentation especially Ireland data, would appreciate copies. Family lore on my end says family originally Muirhead, Scottish.
Thanks. Gladys
