Is anyone researching New Jersey Taylor loyalists?

+7 votes
My ancestor, Samuel Taylor, was born in New Jersey in 1779, but later lived in Canada.  In fact, most of his children and his wife were reportedly born in Canada.. I don't know his parents' names, but given his birth year and later residence in Canada, I'm wondering if he might have been the offspring of loyalists.  I have a loyalist ancestor in another line (not that I've figured out how to prove that), but I've never been able to learn a good way to research them, and having a Taylor ancestor is proving as problematic as my Smith or White ancestors.  Do you have a Taylor loyalist in your line?

Hey Jude (reminds me of a song and how often do you hear that?),

Do you know about the UEL Project? Check into the resources there, it may be helpful. Also, here is the UELAC page for "T" Loyalists. There are a few Taylors, some with info. some without...

Do you have an Idea of where his parents/he may have lived in Canada?
