    Thanks for this post and sharing it on Loyalist Trails. Unfortunately there are some Loyalist descendants who refuse to accept that many Loyalists were slave owners who brought their slaves with them to canada and did not immediately release them. I discovered this in the case of my mother’s Loyalist family from New Milford Connecticut who brought two slaves with them to New Brunswick. That was not part of her Loyalist tradition that was known to her family. I had never realized that slavery was practiced in New England until after the American Revolution and was not just in the southern states.

      Thanks for this response, John. It is interesting how much we find out when we do some research, isn’t it? Another way that history needs to be questioned and verified.
