Would like to find its exact location.
The following was sent in reponse to the question of finding the
exact location. Husband's early ancestors, Thomas Webster (1726-1809) is buried in what
was then called ...Pennypack Baptist, in Lower Dublin/Philadelphia. From Martha Webster
Krewstown Road in Philadelphia, many of my ancestors (Thomas Beans, Griffith
Miles, and their familles) are buried there. A very interesting place, it was
founded in 1688 by people that were originally Keathien Quakers. If you want
to see it come to Philadelphia, Rt. 1 south, make a right on Grant Ave. Go
past Bustleton Ave. make a left on Krewstown Rd. about a 1/2 mile on your
right. The cematery is on both sides of the road.

Bensalem Presbyterian Church on Bristol Rd in Bensalem is the oldest non-quaker
church still worshipping on the same acreage of land since it was formally
established in 1705. We will be celebrating our 300th Anniversary next
year. Many famous pastors were a part of our heritage, including Jedidiah
Andrews, Malachi Jones, William Tennent, Hugh Williamson, M.D. (Also a
Physician, Constitutional Delegate from North Carolina & friend of Ben
Franklin), and James Boyd during the 1700’s and 1800’s.
