I am specifically looking for the ancestors of Aquilla's Sr. and Jr. and the
names of their first wives.

Aquilla Jr is my ancestor. I found an unsubstantiated reference that He was
b. 1781 in PA. There is also a possibility that his first wife was married
before him to a man named Ditson, because I have a reference to a Sally
Ditson who was supposed to be his step-daughter and a half sister to his
daughters by his first wife.

I have more on this family and would be happy to share.
