Erskine of Cester Co. Pa dec. from Archibald of Down

I'm not sure if anyone is lacking this information, but I'm a descendant of the Conns near Pittsburgh and we're distantly linked to Erskine.

There was a John Erskine who married Margaret Trainor and moved to Chester County, Pennsylvania. They are said to have had 10 children.

"John Erskine, born 1764, in Ireland, came to America about the same time as his sister Elizabeth & her husband Samuel Duchfield ( 1782 ). Also his mother MARGARET ( CRUMLEY ) ERSKINE and a twin sister to William ( no name for the twin sister )

John married Margaret Trainor. They lived in Chester County, Pennsylvania. They had 10 children. John died in 1858, and is buried at the cemetery at Great Valley Presbyterian Church in Chester County, Pennsylvania."

John was son of Robert and Margaret Crumley, Robert was son of Archibald Erskine, who was son of a Hugh Erskine. They all lived in Down County, Ireland(according to these findings).

Hopefully these findings are helpful. If anyone wants to contact me, feel free, especially if you have any information on Conns or Koenigs.
