Some history . . .
Transcribed from Wexford Then and Now, page 2, written by
Sue Page in 1950:
THIS IS a brief history of a very small parcel
of that Land Grant by
the King of England to William Penn, from a point in Eastern United
"west to the Setting Sun," known as Wexford, Pennsylvania. Through
headstones, family records and residents who have lived in this
many years has come the information contained herein.
There is evidence of settlers in this
territory as early as possibly
1775 or before. The main trail traveled by the Indians was called the
"Kushkushkee Trail" from the Forks of the Ohio River (where Allegheny
Monongahela meet) north to the Mahon-ing River to a large Indian Village
settlement there. This trail passed through Pine Township, in which the
Village of Wexford is located. Over this trail came the first settlers
Thomas Rogers is credited with being the first
settler in the 1790's,
but records indicate that Thomas Mallerson settled here in the latter
the 18th century on what is now known as the Lurting farm on the Pearce
Both Mallerson and Rogers are buried in an old
cemetery on a hill which
is part of the property now belonging to Frank Laklia of Wallace Road. A
headstone records the death of Thomas Rogers on May 8, 1808, at the age
55. His wife. Elizabeth, who died June 16, 1813, was buried beside him.
family whose name was Henry is recorded through a marker erected to the
memory of "Sarah, Wife of Samuel Henry," who died July 23, 1810, at the
of 37 years. A descendant of Thomas Mallerson, Mrs. Harry N. Cupp of
Pa. reported that at one time the stones of a daughter of Thomas Rogers
four of her children were in the same cemetery. They all died within a
days of one another, leading to the supposition that a contagious
stricken the entire family. These stones may have fallen over and are
probably covered by the thick growth of myrtle, lilac and iris which
on the hilltop.
Thomas Mallerson was born in Groton,
Connecticut, in 1753, and migrated
to this territory of Wexford in his late twenties. Some of his
remember hearing their parents and grandparents tell of his returning
the Revolutionary War and being unable to find his home for awhile. He
sergeant in that war in the Company of Captain Aaron Stevens in the 7th
Connecticut Regiment He enlisted on January 2, 1777, and was discharged
December 3, 1779. He and his wife Ame reared eight children: two boys,
Thomas, Jr., and Elisha; and six girls, Ame, Cynthia, Philinda,
Permelia and Lucinda. Lucinda, the youngest daughter, married Robert
Their son Alexander married Margaret English, who was the mother of Mrs.
Cupp, Mrs. John Williams (also of Mars), Mrs. Blanche Gracie,
Dr. W. C. Lurting. also of Pittsburgh. Mrs. Merle Pinkerton of Crider's
Corner is a Mallerson descendant also but not of this particular line.
The home of Thomas Rogers and his family still
stands today, but it is
soon to be dismantled by the construction of the Pennsylvania Turnpike
through this area. It is the house off Pearce Mill and Wallace Roads
presently occupied by Mrs. Morton. The old fireplaces, floors and
visual proof of its antiquity.
