John Major, Loyalist in Ontario 1800's
My husband traces back to John Major who had a brother Thomas. They were the sons of Thomas Major of Ireland (though they are English who moved there in the 1600's) They may have had a brother that came with them, but my contacts have been mixed on this.
We understand that our Major was a Loyalist and moved to Canada following the Revolutionary War.
He is reported to be from Coothill, Cavan Co., Ireland born abt 19 May 1765.
If you have information to share, would like to hear from you.
