McCreery family of Indiana County, Pennsylvania

Hi, thanks for this opportunity. I am tracing the McCreery family of Indiana County, Pennsylvania. My ancestor was James S. McCreery, born in 1814 and married to Fanny Young. James was the son of Hugh Edward McCreary, born abt. 1771 and his mother, Elizabeth McCreight. Some searchers believe that Hugh (also known as just Edward) was born in Ireland, but I can't get back further than Hugh. Some searchers believe Hugh may have been born in the US and the family was in PA for several generations. Can anyone help me with the ancestors of Hugh and Elizabeth? Thanks! Ann
