Re: Amable Boileau, Hazen's Regiment, "Congress' Own"

In Reply to: Amable Boileau, Hazen's Regiment, "Congress' Own" by Deborah Mangen of 18096

You may also wish to contact Jack Bilow, who has written a LOT about the Boileau (which was anglicanized to Bilow) from that family. He, I THINK works though the Northern New York American-Canadian Genealogical Society out of plattsburgh, NY

Also, I have :
Page 44: History of Chazy, NY
"Of the seven other Refugees who came north with Mooers in 1783, we have record of six of them, showing that several seem to have remained in the Canadian Settlement. A PETER BOILEAU served in "Congress's Own" and drew lot 116 of 80 acres and lot 214 of 420 acres in the Refugee tract for his private's service. In the same regiment was also LT. PIERRE AMABLE BOILEAU who drew lots 83 and 150 of 80 acres each and lots 70 and 88 of 420 acres each. In 1787 Lt. Boileau was in the Canadian Settlement with a household of four. On November 10th 1789, at Plattsburgh, Pier Boieau Lt, his mark, as a Refugee, gave a power of attorney to Benjamin Mooers. Lt. Amable Boilleau died intestate of a gunshot wound at Champlain on February 19th 1805. During the Revolution an AMABLE BOILLEAU served as an enlisted man in Hazen's Regiment for which service he drew 80 acre lot 8 and 420 acre lot 37. The 1790 census lists his household or the lieutenant's as two males over 16 and two females. The 1798 assessment describes his property: Aimabley Boileau 40 acres on Lake Shore and joining Laurent Oliver's Land. One Log house ($10). One Log Barn 20x20 $240. On November 15th 1788, a group of Refugees including Amaible Boileau, his mark, and Piere Boilau, his mark, had given Mooers powers of attorney. It is difficult to distinguish these three men, but one of them is no doubt the Pierre Boilau who was with Mooers in 1783. Pierre Boilau was a resident of the Canadian Settlement in 1787 with a household of two, and the 1790 census lists Peter Buylo with a family of one male over 16 and one female."

on page 270 of "HISTORY OF CLINTON AND FRANKLIN COUNTIES, NEW YORK" part I, Philadelphia: J.W. Lewis & Co, 1880 - "...Capt. A. Paulent, Amable Paulent, and others; also, Lieut. Pierre Boileau, Amable Boileau, and Peter Boileau lived at King's Bay on the lakeshore. These and their associate settlers had been soldiers in the war, and suffered the loss of all earthy goods, and were poor indeed".
