Re: Freeland's from Greene Cty, PA to Ohio

My Flowers family lived in Greene Twp., Washington and Greene Counties, in the 1770's through about 1800. They moved there from York Co., PA. There were a Uriah, Benjamin and Aaron Freeland in York County, PA, where they came from. I'm trying to figure out if there is some relationship between the Freelands and the Flowers, as Benjamin and Aaron were present at the estate sale for Thomas Flowers in 1804 in Greene Co., and Uriah was witness to the will of John Flowers in York Co. You mention that Isaac Freeland might have been born in Greene Co. in 1714. Actually no one lived in the area that was to become Greene Co.until after the French and Indian War, so that would have been wrong. There was an Isaac Freeland born in Delaware before 1728. These Freelands lived near my Flowers in Kent County, Delaware before the Flowers moved to York County. I think that these Freelands must have been English, as they were in DE as early as the 1600's. Not many French there then (if any)
