McQuiston's of Cumberland. Family records indicate that Robert, Thomas, and James McQuiston/McCuiston immigrated to American in 1735, landing at New Castle DE. By the early 1750's they had settled in West Pennsboro, Cumberland County, PA. Their stay there was probably short lived, as soon thereafter they had relocated to Rowan/Guilford County, settling on the Haw River and Horsepen Creek. No evidence of their long term persistance in Cumberland County is noted here. This family line seems to have used "McCuiston" or "McQuiston" consistently. While these surname variants probably derived from the same root as "Houston", there is no immediate reason to believe that they may be connected genealogically with other "Houston's" in Old Chester.
