Hello Jim. Have not ignored, simply so busy with house repairs i have not been on site. I do have a lot of info, but still trying hard to find why Amos Tanner changed his name. It was during the war, so it is possible he left to flee the States, thus settling in Ontario. Glad he did, or i may not have ever been. I did find in his travels that on or about the time he left the United States, he worked on a large farm. Owned by, u guessed it, a Martin. Could this Martin have already been related, or allowed and aided his escape? All things i am so eager to find out more about. If u would like to stay in touch than please do.
