Mike,

Also from the Southamtpon Baptist Church records...

Born to Abel and Mary Morgan:

Grace b. 24 Jun 1766
William b 2 Jun 1769

As for finding the parents of Randal and Grace, I guess a logical first step would be to check for wills for any Morgans or Ledyards in the counties you think they might have lived. You could also check tax lists to see if there are any families in the are with the last names of Ledyard and Morgan.

If you go to this site, some of the early tax lists are online. Notice the "Randal" family in Southampton and earlier in Bensalem. Perhaps your Randal's mother's maiden name was Randal. Unfortunately I don't see any signs of Morgans or Ledyards in these lists:

As far as immigration and passenger lists go, I'm not real good with that. I have a book that lists hundres of early Pennsylvania immigrants, but I don't see Randal's name. Of course, I've not found any of my ancestors in there either.

You could also contact the Spruance Library for help if you're sure they're from Bucks County. They could check for wills.
