When it was founded in January, 1750, Cumberland County in Pennsylvania, was said to contain all the land 'on the west side to Susquehanna to the setting of the Sun', except for what now are known as York and Adams Counties. This settlement was heavily Scots-Irish in its makeup, and was one of the areas on which General Washington relied so heavily for troops in the early days of the Revolution. Indeed, one month after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, twelve companies, containing about 900 men (most of them Scots-Irish), had gone out from Cumberland County, with six more companies preparing to march.

Written by Mary Craig Shoemaker, and originally published in 1922, this is a wonderful genealogical reference work, compiling what is known of five of these hardy settler families: Orr, Watson, Craig, Vance, and Boyd.
