Simon Hadley, son of Simon and Catharine (Talbot) Hadley, was born in 1675, probably in Ireland, died 1756 and is buried in the New Garden cemetery, Chester county, Pennsylvania. He married (1) Ruth (Keran) Miller, a widow who was born 1677 in Ireland, died 1750, and is also buried in New Garden. Simon married (2) Phoebe (Grubb) Buffington in 1752, widow of Richard Buffington and daughter of John and Frances Grubb. Simon Hadley came to America in 1712* with his first wife Ruth, and 6 children, having 2 more after his arrival in America. Simon purchased 1000 acres of land about 30 miles SW of Philadelphia, in the Manor Steyning. When the Pennsylvania- Delaware border was drawn, it passed through Simon's property, putting his residence in New Castle Co., Delaware, and the bulk of his property in Chester Co., PA. Simon and his family were members of The Society of Friends. They received certificates of removal from Moate Monthly Meeting in West Meath county, Ireland. Four years after his arrival in America, Simon presented the certificates to the Newark M.M. in Centerville, DE. Records of Simon's family can be found in the New Garden Meeting minutes.
