  1. John, I just searched in the Connecticut records and found one person who I have known for years came from that state. Got him!!

    He was one of the US people buried in my special place, the West Templeton Cemetery. I had suggested years ago that he came to Canada because of the punishing US tax rates then, paying for the War of Independence. I also suggested the same for the Philemon Wright family. I know he fought in the Revolutionary Army. Thanks and cheers, BT
