    • Abraham was an Elder during the formation of the Presbyterian Church in Red Hill, Tinicum Twp, Bucks Co, PA in 1768. Abraham took the Oath of Allegiance in Plumsted Twp, Bucks Co, PA in 1777. In 1778, Abraham paid taxes in Nockamixon Twp, Bucks Co, PA. 1790 census shows an Abraham Middleswarth in Allegheny Co(Part taken from Washington Co), with 2 males over 16, 0 under, and 2 females. Second adult male was Moses.
      Abraham and at least two of his sons moved to Allegheny Co.,PA before 1790. Abraham and Moses helped establish the Bethany Presbyterian church near Bridgeville, PA. They owned three acres of land located above the present Reichhold plant on Miller's Run Road, the church purchased this land from Moses and Abraham Middleswarth at a cost of $40.77. This also included the land for the Bethany Cemetery were Abraham, Moses and several of their family members are buried. Written records are not available concerning the first church, but it is assumed that it was erected in 1815. The building and the floor were made of bricks. Each pew holder furnished his own seat so that the pews varied in material and design. In general, they were simple slabs of wood with holes bored in them, pins inserted for legs and uprights with boards nailed to them for backs.
