Lest We Forget
The following is a list of names on a Petition sent to the New York Provincial Legislature in 1771. The Petition supported splitting Albany County into two, thus creating a new county called Tryon County after Gov. William Tryon.
Many of these men became Loyalists when the American Revolution began in 1777. Several fought for Butler's Rangers which is where my three Loyalist ancestors fought. Many are descended from my direct ancestors - Vrooman, Van Slyke, Van Alstyne, Bradt.... Many settled in the Niagara area of Ontario when it was opened for settlement to disbanded Rangers of Butler's Rangers in 1783. I have added my own notes, genealogical information, etc. in square brackets and at the end of the list of names. I have also provided links to descendants of some of these men, using email addresses for contacts.
