Looking for anyone who has any idea where Francis and Simon Palmateer came from in New York State.
Francis rceived a lease in 1800 for land in Cramahe Twp in Northumberland County in the Newcastle District.His brother or 1st Cousin Simon Palmateer lived on and off with Francis in Cramahe from 1804-1820.
Simon applied for a land grant in 1840 in Ameliasburgh Twp in Prince Edward Couunty, Ontario and was turned down.He gave his birth location as Dutchess County, New York in 1766.He left for Canada around 1794.I'm assuming Francis and SImon are close in age.Francis died between 1832-1833 Assessments in Percy Twp, next door to Cramahe Twp.Simon, I'm assuming died before the 1851 Census when they started listing everyone in the family in the Census.
One last oddity or clue - There was a William Palmateer (born in 1796 in U.S.) on the 1851 Ameliasburgh Twp. Census with sons named Francis and Simon.I figure he is another brother or the son of Francis or Simon.
Would love some help solving this and who they both may have married before coming to Canada after the Revolutionary War.They may have went to Nova Scotia or New Brunswick first before coming to Upper Canada (now Ontario).
Many thamks in advance!I can be reached at email@example.com by email directly.
