  • Presbyterians are Protestant Christians. The denomination originated in Scotland and congregations are ruled by elected elders. Presbyterian theology follows the Calvanist tradition and emphasizes the sovereignty of God, the authority of the Scriptures, and grace through faith in Christ.

    Mary Walton was born about 1705 in Manor of Moreland (now Upper Moreland Township), Philadelphia County (now Montgomery) County, Pennsylvania. Her parents were Thomas Walton and Priscilla Hunn.

    A Mary Walton married Michael Hilton on December 7, 1733 and a Mary Walton married George Geno on January 17, 1742. Both weddings were at the First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia. The bride in these weddings could be Mary Walton the daughter of Thomas or Mary Corry Walton the widow of Joseph Walton (Byberry Waltons, page 19).

    Byberry is a township in the northeast corner of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. The Walton brothers were early settlers. Moreland Township was just west of Byberry. When Montgomery County broke off in 1784, Moreland was divided into two townships, both called Moreland. In 1917 the Montgomery County Moreland split into Upper Moreland Township and Lower Moreland Township.

    The Manor of Moreland was composed of a tract of ten thousand acres, and was created, in 1682, by a grant from William Penn to Dr. Nicholas More. Most of the Manor was in Philadelphia County, but is now Moreland Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
