New York Loyalist Declaration of Dependence

New York Loyalist Declaration of Dependence

Surnames: Harpel, Harpell
The New York Historical society has a copy in the Luce Collection, but I can't read it online at all. But if you're in the city ...

I too would like to see whether my NY Loyalist ancestors (Harpel or Harpell) signed the petition. Because there were so many signatories it could be. By the way, I believe that this petition had so many signatories not because it was more popular than the Declaration of Independence, but because it was available at a tavern for any to sign over the course of several weeks. There was no such opportunity for patriots to sign the D of I.

Thank you! I've just spent some time exploring the site where the list was posted, and that's given me some more leads. Now I wonder whether the George Harpell on that list was "Esquire George," who I believe left Jeddore to move to New Brusnwick or somewhere else further west...

Dear Karen Pettengill......
I have done extensive research on my JOHN CRAIG Who ended up here in New Brunswick after the Revolutionary War, as a Loyalist His origin may have been NY or the Carolinas.

If you have access to the list, is there a JOHN CRAIG on it please??
I know of no Harpells around this area.
I will now keep my eyes open for the name.
