Just before the American Revolution, William Bingham joined the Philadelphia trading firm of Willing, Morris & Co., begun by Thomas Willing (1731-1821) and Robert Morris (1734-1806). Bingham was sent by the Continental Congress to the West Indies to negotiate for produce and munitions to supply the American army in 1776. His ownership of privateers and other business dealings made him one of the wealthiest men in America. He married Willing's daughter in 1780. At the time of the execution of this deed, Willing was President of the First Bank of the United States. Bingham became U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania in 1795, following Robert Morris in office.
