I'm just trying to connect with others on here who may share the same Loyalist ancestry. Below I've listed all of my known direct UEL ancesters as well as those who I 'suspect' were Loyalists (they are included on some UEL lists but not on others..?). If anyone can share any information on these men, please do. Especially any information on Daniel Campbell UEL, Michael Cline UEL, Philip Eamer UEL, as well as anything on Hamilton or Grant families.
I also have a few ancesters who came to Canada from the U.S. about the time of the Revolutionary War but I'm not sure if they are Loyalists, so if anyone can clarify this for me...
