NOTE from submitter: It is evident that many of these names later appear as settlers in the Eastern Townships of Quebec in the years during and following the American Revolution, as well as around the Bay of Quinte [an arm of the northeastern part of Lake Ontario] in Upper Canada [the southern part of what is now Ontario province].
