Dear Marlene,
Did a patriot search for Louder without success. It looks like your ancestor may have been a soldier from Canada? If so, we do not have access to those men. DAR has only patriots fighting as American soldiers and their wives.

Thanks Sandy! That means he was likely born in Nova Scotia. Apparently there was a Jacob Lounder who was at Cumberland Bay and a Peter Lounder at St. Croix in 1604-05 so I will see what I can find on their descendants. At least this gives me a more definite direction for my search!

I am just starting research on Thomas Lounder, Marlene. How do you know his middle name and his death date? Why do you say Elinor/Eleanor was born in Ireland? Her pension application says that Thomas was 22 years older than she was when they married in 1798 in the parish of Kingston, and she was 64 years of age when she signed the application in January 1846.
Have you found any likely origin for Thomas yet? C'mon, Marlene, you've had nine years. :)
