Mary Thornton married Charles Westley in 1778 in the Dutch Reformed Church in Schenectady, NY. Most of her brothers were American Patriots, one brother Matthew was tried as a traitor when caught behind enemy lines. He later moved his family to New Brunswick. Mary's Uncle, Matthew Thornton was a signer of the Declaration of Independence for New Hampshire. After the war the Charles Westley moved his family to Glen Garry in Ontario. This new township was settled by Scots Loyalists who fought for the Brits. Charles name appears on the roll of the 15th Company Albany County Militia land bounty rights, which seems to confirm he was a patriot. Why did he end up in a loyalist township in Canada? Any ideas?
