Othniel Alsop, a Quaker minister in the Philadelphia area, was born in 1770 in England to Scrivener and Mary Alsop. In 1795, he came to the United States, and in 1806 got a certificate to Philadelphia Monthly Meeting to marry Hannah Brown, daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Brown. That same year, the couple transferred to Northern District Monthly Meeting. Between 1806 and 1818 they had five children, Rebecca, Robert, George Morris, Samuel, and Hannah. Hannah Alsop Sr. died in 1820, and in 1824, Othniel went to Abington Monthly Meeting to marry Sarah Coeman Waring, widow of Elijah Waring.
