Sounds like the same James. UEL is United Empire Loyalist. He shows up on a list for the UEL Association of Canada.
James was my gggg-grandfather. His daughter, Huldah, married Joel Piper. Their daughter, Esther married my gg-grandfather. Both the Burdicks and the Pipers were from Massachusetts, although the Pipers were not UEL...in fact, Joel's father, Caleb Piper (from what I can ascertain) fought with the Patriots.
Hope this helps.
