Hello Jamie, welcome to RevWarTalk!
What an exciting family history, and the documentation to help bring you even closer to it makes it even more amazing. It’s pretty special to know how our ancestors helped play a part in creating the place we call home today. I am excited to read through the statement you attached and see if I can transcribe some bits, it’s fun to learn from primary sources, very cool!
It is interesting to think about the breakdown of loyalists and patriots, and what might have swayed people to choose sides. I’d imagine there were a fair amount of loyalists (that we don’t really hear more about). And likely a fair amount of neutral folks that might have wanted to be open patriots though wanted to play it safe. Did your 6th Grandfather have a lot of land? Was he a farmer?
Hudson has some great family connections too
Thanks for sharing!
