FOREWORD

This genealogy is based on one of the Cadwallader lines of Dr. Rawlins Cadwallader’s Genealogy “The Cadwalladers In the United States” - namely John Cadwallader of Horsham. Some corrections and many additions were made to his information.

I did research work in the following Historical Societies: Philadelphia, Doylestown, West Chester, Norristown, and Swarthmore College. The minutes of the following Friends Meetings were searched: Abington, Horsham, Richland, Byberry, and also census records of the Pennsylvania Archives. John Cadwallader’s will at the Philadelphia City Hall, cemeteries, and deeds and other documents at the courthouses in Doylestown, Norristown, and Harrisburg were searched.
