Arthur Galbraith 1727-1818 Birth Date Source Help?

Can someone please share what the source is for the widely held birth date of Arthur Galbraith of 14 Mar 1727 in Lancaster, PA (other than what is written on the Clan Galbraith site)?

I am wondering if Arthur was really born in PA given there is no record of him for so many years from his reported birth until the land warrant in 1766 in Shaver's Creek and his marriage to Mary Martin Sharp in 1768. Perhaps he was born in Ireland or Scotland? Since his DNA aligns with Hugh Gilbreath b abt 1842 from Ireland, perhaps he came from there?
