Some researchers have set forth that James McAchran born 1750 was the father of James (b. 1769), William (b. 1770), John (b. ca. 1771) and Mary (b. 1773).
Their parents, however, were actually William Mceachran and Hannah Thomas, who were married in Wilmington DE on 1 August 1768. Hannah was the daughter of Morris Thomas and Mary Cantrell.
What is the source for the 1750 birth date for James? There was a James McCachran in Chester County, PA, and he very likely was a relative of William Mceachran. This James was born about 1735.
