Re: George Proudfoot, late 1700s
While I have nothing to offer in solution to your questions, I do have a question of my own about your George Proudfoot. Do you know his political affiliations during the Revolutionary War?Was he likely to have been a Loyalist?
I came to the Proudfoot Genforum looking for informtion on the following marriages:
From Sons and Daughters of the American Loyalists
John Taylor, Ernestown, of the 34th Reg't. UE, had daughter Elizabeth who m.
________Proudfoot. 25/3 Storrington, Land Board Certificate.
" 4th Feb 1817John Canniff & Mrs. Proudfoot of Belleville in Belleville".
The research that a group of us are conductinginvolves severalfamilies of United Empire Loyalists, some from Saratoga, Albany County, NY, who served with Jessup's Loyal Rangers and ended up in Ontario, Canada. They are
peripherally related to the above marriage involving the marriage of the widowed Mrs. Elizabeth Proudfoot.
Proudfoot is apparently a Scotch name, and I have another mysterious Scotch surname connected to the UEL Snyders of Ontario Canada that I am researching....WATCHMAN. Which is neither here nor there, except I mention the name wherever I can hopingsomeone might have run across a Watchman in their research.
With the mention of Albany in your post, I just thought I'd run this by you.
