Charles Risk, 1790. – Was a merchant at 40 South Water street and 39 South Front street in 1791.  A marriage license was issued April 30, 1772, for Charles Risk and Rebecca Boggs.

Anthony Kennedy, 1790. – Resided in the Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. His will, dated March 15, 1828, and proved October 7, 1828, mentions his four children, John, Andrew, Pendleton and Anthony; his nephews, Anthony Kennedy Joyce, Andrew Joyce and John Joyce, sons of his niece, Rebecca Joyce, and her husband, James Joyce, of Bucks co., Pa.; David Risk, Anthony Kennedy Colhoun, and his nieces, Jane Risk, Lilly Colhoun, and her husband, Benjamin C. Olhoun.  He gave to the Hibernian Society a tract of land in Westmoreland co., Pa., containing 400 acres.  This is the tract of land which figrues so prominently in the minutes of the Society.  He also gave a tract of land to the Orphans’ Asylum of Philadelphia, on to the Pennsylvania Missionary Society, one to the Ben Salem Presbyterian Congregation of Bucks county, Pa., and another to Rev. Thomas I. Biggs, of Frankford, Philadelphia.  It is to be hoped that the donees named had better luck with their tracts of land than the Hibernian Society.
