I am am related to a Sgt. Samuel Bishop born in New York or Connecticut around 1765.  He died in Three Rivers, Quebec on December 11, 1813.  His wife was Nancy McClure.  One of his children was Daniel Bishop, the father of Charles Emerson Bishop.  I am looking for information on Sgt. Sam who appears to have been a loyalist who fought for the British during the Revolutionary War and then moved to Nova Scotia, later New Brunswick when it ended.  Thank you for any help you can provide.

I am also related to Samuel Bishop. I believe that he was born 1765 in N.Y. He was a loyalist and moved to Canada.I found his name on aCanadian list of sevicemen. If I can find the site I let you know. My Mother was Charles and Roxie's granddaughter.Her Mother was Bessie (Bishop) Leach.My Mother and her sisters(my aunts) were told my their Grandfather(Charles) ,Grandmother(Roxie), and their Mother that the family was Levesque and changed to Bishop. But I can't find when this happen. I did find that sometimes some members change it themselves. If you find anything about this would you please let me know.
