I am looking for the descendants of, or an information whatsoever with regards to the above family. I believe my family came from Cortland Co. New York. This affadavit was attached to the property of David Jr. in South Gower, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada. We know the family left the U.S. in May of 1798 as documented below. We also know who they left with.
If you have any information or documentation re this family, I would appreciate it very much if you would share it with me.
Thank you very much
