"My" John Jarman was a Loyalist. He MAY have been born in PA. He was in Canada, had a dtr named Catherine.presumable b. 1804. HOWEVER she claimed to be 21 as of July 11, 1820 AND md to Joel Whitcomb, b. PA. Hmmmm. The land petition was also signed by a Garrett Jarman, relationship not shown. This was in Welland, Lundy's Lane, Ontario Canada where my paternal grandmother Sophronia was b. 13 July 1834. After her birth, the family emigrated to NY, Ohio, and Iowa--Council Bluffs. I don't know what happened to Joel and Catherine Jarman Whitcomb after 1850--they disappeared. Must have gone someplace, I should think. Or been scalped by Indians, as has been rumored. Any help you can offer with the Jarmans (I, personally, think they were Welsh) will be GREATLY appreciated.
