    Biography
    • IRLAND. The Irland family of Northumberland county traces its line back to David Irland, who was born in 1738 in Scotland, and on coming to America settled in Turbut township, this county, where he took up about one thousand acres of land. The house which he built upon his farm is still standing (in 1911) and in good condition. The location is known as Pleasant Valley. During the Indian troubles he and his family were obliged to take refuge at Fort Augusta, at Sunbury, where they remained until the trouble was over, returning to the home in Turbut township as soon as it was safe. Mr. Irland died June 16, 1827, at the age of eighty-nine years, and his wife Lenora, born in 1739, died June 16, 1799, at the age of sixty. They are buried in the ChiIIisquaque cemetery. They were members of the Presbyterian church. Seven children were born to this pioneer couple:

      Robert, who died Oct. 31, 1845, aged eighty-three years (his first wife, Mary, died Aug. 12, 1808, aged thirty-seven years, and his second wife Elizabeth died Feb. 2, 1845, aged sixty-four years); John; William; Mrs. John Chesnut (Margaret?) ; David, Jr.; Anna E., who died unmarried; and Elizabeth, who married William H. Sanderson (their children were William, John J., Mrs. Margaret Brown, and David).
