http://family4.org/clanuisdeanusa/file/6qN4xiYTT/Volume%201%20-%202015.pdf The Middle Octorara Presbyterian Church of Bart Township, Lancaster County, was organized in 1734, and Rev. Alexander Craighead, formerly of New England, was ordained as the first regular pastor. The Scotch-Irish who landed at New Castle in 1735 attended this church. Among them was Walter Denny, the father-in-law of Robert McCuiston. Robert stuck close to his in-laws and when they moved to Carlisle, PA, he moved with them, while his brothers went on to North Carolina. It is almost certain Robert and his wife, Ann Denny, also attended Middle Octorara, as most likely did James and Thomas McCuistion until they headed south with the Nottingham Company.
