Cornelius Borland
The following, regarding Cornelius Borland, was extracted from the book, History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of Its Pioneers and Prominent Men (Boyd Crumrine, editor):

     Cornelius Borland came from Allegheny County in 1846, and bought the Rev. Dr. Riddle farm.  His ancestors were early settlers in that section.  He married Rebecca, daughter of Benjamin Kelso.  His sons, M. H., A. C., and J. K. Borland, now own the farm.
