Are there any descendants out there of the fire-brand Presbyterian preacher, Samuel Hemphill, who came to Philadelphia in 1734 from Ireland?

He was too much of a free-thinker for that day and was brought up before the Presbytery on charges. Benjamin Franklin defended him!!

I have some information of Samuel Hemphill, but all it says is that he "left town" after his Presbytery trial. Where did he go?

Would like to get in touch with other descendants. Thanks.
