    • David Irland, Jr., grandfather of Mrs. Reese H. Swenk, was born while the family were at Fort Augusta, in 1779. He died upon his farm in Turbut township in 1858, aged seventy-nine years.

      He was a well known man, and an active member of the militia in the early days. His first wife, Sarah Teitsworth, born Dec. 4, 1787, died in 1818, at the age of thirty-one years. Her parents, John and Mary (Gallagher) Teitsworth, were married Jan. 10, 1787, and their children were born as follows: Sarah, Dec. 4, 1787; John, Jan. 15, 1790 ( died Nov. 2, 1804) ; William, Oct. 12, 1792 (died Jan. 23, 1794); Elizabeth, June 17, 1795; Maria, Oct. 9, 1797 (died Sept. 29, 1804) ; Thomas G., Nov. 3, 1800 (died Sept. 22, 1803).
