Hi Patsy. I added some info related to Joanna's query. Here is some information specific to yours:

Daniel Rose (Stamford) was a brother of Hugh Sr. Daniel was not a Butler Ranger --he was one of Brant's Volunteers.

This was one of the many families that had divided loyalties during the revolution. Throughout the war (sans a brief incarceration at Albany jail) Hugh Sr. remained in what later became Delaware Twp. NY. He later became a justice of the peace following the war. During the war, however, he was "neutral" but in effect had clandestinely supported the loyalists throughout the war. The greatest evidence of this is that his was one of the few houses that were not destroyed during one of the raids through that area.

I suggest you read the following book which will infill many pieces of history for you; it will also link you to the primary sources of the information. There are a few small changes that are needed since there are some additional documents that were not known of by the author at the time of writing. However, the history is quite accurate. The central families are the Scottish Loyalists: Chisholms, Roses (Daniel, James, & William), Archibald Thomson, James Park, and Thomas McMicking.
