I do indeed know about Lucy's parents, J.George and Elizabeth (Thomas) Apt. Elizabeth's father was William Thomas, United Empire Loyalist, of Digby, NS.
J.George was born on the ship 'INGO', just offshore of England, in August 1780. His parents (Johann Georg ABT and Anna Katarina MEERGARDT) were aboard a military vessel transporting Hessian soldiers to New York to fight for the British cause in the American Revolution.I have a copy of the Register recording his birth, in German of course. But it gives his parents' names and where they are from in Germany.
I also have a copy of his parents' will, probated in Jan, 1815.It lists their surviving children, including your George. He left NS after his father's death with Betsy and several young children.They moved across the water to NB, then drifted down to Maine.
If you are interested in copies of these documents, please email me at:
I'd be happy to send you copies of whatever I have on Lucy's ancestors.
