Any Quakers in York County at this time would have been members of
Warrington MM. Some Warrington records (although unfortunately not
including the minutes) were abstracted and published in 1989 by Margaret B.
Walmer as 100 YEARS AT WARRINGTON. Publisher is Heritage Books. Even the
husband was disowned, the wife and her children could have remained Friends.
