Richard 'Derick' Wannamaker, Loyalist, New Jersey Volunteer, widow Elizabeth

I would like to know more about Elizabeth, the widow of Richard 'Derick' Wannamaker. Richard was a Loyalist, a member of the New Jersey Volunteers.

is one site that lists him on a muster roll.


is another.

At the second site is the following, "Note on Derick Wandemaker (Richard Wanamaker) Derrick (Richard) Wanamaker died in goal/jail in Philadelphia in 1780. His widow, Elizabeth, married a John Post, and settled in the Maugerville, New Brunswick, Canada area."

I believe my great-great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Post born about 1800 in New Brunswick, is the daughter of John and Elizabeth Wannamaker Post.

Elizabeth Post Walton Sands is listed on the 1850 Eaton Grant (now Caribou, Maine) with her third husband, Stephen Sands.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
