Re: James Walton baptized 1 Feb 1795 Long Island, New Brunswick, son of John & Ann
Now, I am very excited!I have pieces of information and it sounds like you and I are working on the same--very large--puzzle!
I believe my ggg grandmother, Elizabeth Post (I left out a great in the previous message) was the daughter or granddaughter of the Loyalist John Post.I believe John Post, the Loyalist, was from New Jersey because he was a New Jersey Volunteer.
1. Major Timpany's Company in the 4th Battalion of New Jersey Volunteers, Staten Island, Nov 20, 1777:
--John Post is listed as a Corporal.
--Abraham Post is listed as a Sergeant; I don't know how he's related to John.
2. Major Timpany's Company in His Majesty's 4th Battalion of New Jersey Volunteers, Staten Island, Jan 1778:
--John Post is a Corporal
--Abraham Post is a Sargeant
3. Loyalist Muster Roll, American Revolutionary War, Includes Men from Bergen County, New Jersey - Staten Island, Jan 6, 1778:
Derick Wannamaker, a Private, is listed as sick in quarters.After the muster roll is this:"Note on Derick Wannamaker (Richard Wannamaker): Dirck Wannamaker died in goal/jail in Philadelphia in 1780.His widow, Elizabeth, married a John Post, and settled in the Maugerville, New Brunswick, Canada area."
4. 1786 Land Grant - Maugerville Township, Sunbury County, New Brunswick, Canada.
John Post and 17 other men are listed on the grant; I believe they were all New Jersey Volunteers.
5. 1850 census of Eaton Grant (now Caribou, Maine)
Elizabeth Sands, the wife of Stephen Sands, is listed as age 50, born in New Brunswick.
6. 1860 census, Elizabeth Sands is listed as age 64, born in New Brunswick.Elizabeth and Stephen Sands are living next door to Thomas and Nancy Walton....
7. On the 1870 census, Elizabeth Sands is living with Thomas and Nancy Walton.She must have died before 1880 because she's not on that census.
8. On the gravemarker for Thomas Walton in the Walton Cemetery on the Caribou-Fort Fairfield Road, Thomas' parents are listed as Isaac 'David' and Elizabeth [Post] Walton.
9.In the Sheffield, Sunbury County, New Brunswick marriage records 1767-1845, I found one Post listed:
Hanna Post married William Porter on 10 July 1823; I don't know how Hanna was related to Elizabeth.
Those are the pieces of information I have about Elizabeth Post.
