This is what I have on the Canadian Kalars. Some of the Kalar folks did go to Canada before the Revolutionary War
( we think) because they were Loyalists to England. They went to the Niagara area...don't have my notes in front of me right now so can't tell you exactly where. We think that they were in the Maryland/Virginia/Pa area first.
Some of them did return to the U.S. (NY state) a few generations later. Many are still in Canada. Vincent Kalar wrote a genealogy of that branch of the Kalars. He could not definitely link the WV Kalars to the Canadian Kalars; however, this story has been handed down through both sides of the family. I would surmise that it is probably true, but have no proof.
