Classification: Query
Surnames: Collison
As a direct descendant of John Collison UEL 1765-1826 (my GGGG grandfather). I am searching for any information on John's ancestors, parents and origin. We believe John was born in Ireland came to the USA between 1765 and 1778. His parents were alledgedly living in the area of Boston, Mass.
John served in the New York Royal Regiment in Capt. John Munro's 7th Company. John enlisted Sept. 1, 1778 and was listed on Jacob Farrand's Muster Roll dated December 24, 1782. He was listed as a "Drummer".
John recieved a land grants in Ontario Canada for his services to the Crown. (100 acres near the river and 200 acres away from the river).
Any information to help identify his parents or other data on John's ancestry would be greatly appreciated. This presently, is my "Brick Wall".
