Looking for info on Borders family who lived in either Berks or Bucks Co, Pa in 1756. Have family tree verified back to birth of Peter Borders 1756 in Bucks Co, Pa. His father was John Bodders/Borders born about 1736 near Skullkill Co, Pa. John Bodders/Borders was married to Margaret McGinnis, I think. Family left Pa and were in South Carolina at time of Peter's marriage to Esther ? in 1786 and John rec/d land grant there for 400 acres. I am trying to trace ancestors back from John and would like to know where family immigrated from. Have some info. that Margaret McGinnis's father was John McGinnis but have no verif. of this. John had 3 sons that were born in Pa, I think. Peter, Jacob and Christopher. He had another son, Henry but unsure where he was born. Family eventually settled in Ky in 1820 and both John and Peter are supposedly buried in Allen Co., Ky but I have not located graves.
