Stephen Sands and his third wife Elizabeth Post Walton Sands are listed on the 1850 Eaton Grant census (now Caribou, Maine).Stephen and Elizabeth are my great-great-great grandparents through their daughter Mahala Jane.
I am trying to document the marriages of Stephen and Elizabeth and all the children.
Mary Walton, the wife of Jonas, was the daughter of whom?
I have seen her listed as the daughter of Elizabeth and her first husband Issac 'David' Walton.I don't think that is accurate - but maybe it is.In a Caribou Historical Society publication, Gleanings, Mary is referenced as the daughter of James Walton.He would have been born about 1801 according to information in Gleanings and information in George Whitneck's Civil War Papers.If she was born in 1814 then that doesn't make sense.
There is a James Walton on the 1850 census and he is believed to be the son of Elizabeth and her first husband.
Where did you find the dates for Mary - born 6/9/1814, died 7/19/1894?
The Sands and the Waltons were from the Grand Lake-Sheffield, Sunbury, New Brunswick area.Stephen Sands the Loyalist was the father of Stephen who married Elizabeth Post Walton.I know very little about the Waltons.
Elizabeth and Stephen's daughter Mahala married James Dow, the son of Annie Gallagher and Henry Dow.Elizabeth's son Thomas Walton, from her first marriage, married James' sister Nancy Dow.And Margaret McNeal was the daughter of Annie Gallagher and her second husband, Stephen McNeil.That's how the Whitenecks became relevant to me:)
I laughed when I read your information that John Whieknact was a New Jersey Volunteer.I have spent about two hours today reading about the New Jersey Volunteers on the Advanced Loyalist website.I think Elizabeth Post was the daughter of John Post, a New Jersey Volunteer.I could go on and on - I do tend to ramble when I get started.I tie into several other Loyalist families - and I am beginning to believe they were all New Jersey Volunteers!!!Just kidding.Many of the NJ Volunteers petitioned for land together.
I am very aware of the PANB but I didn't realize there was more information than what was available online.I will check into that.Thank you for mentioning it.I will also check into the book by Harold Whiteneck.
