Thomas Cresap (d.1791) immigrated about 1710/1718 from England to Harford (then Baltimore) County, Maryland, and married Hannah Johnson in 1727. His home was just on the river border with Chester County, Pennsylvania, and after his home was burned and he was imprisoned in Philadelphia, eventually by 1760 Maryland ceded the lands to Pennsylvania. He then settled on hands he had already acquired in Alleghany County, Maryland. He also served in the Revolutionary Army. Descendants and relatives lived in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, Nebraska and elsewhere.
