Thank you for contacting me and providing the sources for my ancestor in the War of 1812. This opens up a new side of his life in Upper Canada I was not aware of. Made my day! Your work is much appreciated.

Greetings Fred,

Thank-you for your expertise on War of 1812. As you add your knowledge, could you please check the location fields? It is certain Canada was not a country at this time and was either East or West Canada, or it was Upper or Lower Canada.

Re: Your 5/5/19 email "Comment on Badgerow-48 from Fred Blair":

"At times, Justin and Marinus served together. There was also a Justice Badgerow who may have been Justin."

The records I have seen spell his name "Martinus." Is this a typo?

Thanks for your work, Kay

I welcome learning more about this 4th great uncle?? In 1800 Malcolm was elected for one year the overseer of highway and fence along Yonge street from Big Creek Bridge to lot 25. On May 17, 1802 Malcolm was shown to also have ownership to Lot 17 (5 acres) on the south side of Duke street which was four blocks west of Yonge street and one mile north of the York harbor in Toronto. Malcolm of the Township of York filed another land petition on June 18, 1806 which stated: "Petitioner is a reduced Sergeant of the King's American Rangers and has resided in this Province since 1795 and has received no lands except Lot No. 24, west side of Yonge Street, confirmed to him on 24 June 1803. Requests 300 acres to complete the 500 acres allowed to a Military Claimant".Approved:

Warrant thanks Jerry

Do you have any contacts that be working with this group of veteran British solders???

In a August 1797 list of inhabitants of the Township of York, Malcolm was listed as a single man who had a farm south of Jonathan Scotts's - whose farm was located on the southwest corner of the current Steeles and Yonge Streets in the city of North York, now part of the Regional Municipality of Metro Toronto (listed as living on Lot 24 Concession one west). In 1800 Malcolm was elected for one year the overseer of highway and fence along Yonge street from Big Creek Bridge to lot 25. On May 17, 1802 Malcolm was shown to also have ownership to Lot 17 (5 acres) on the south side of Duke street which was four blocks west of Yonge street and one mile north of the York harbor in Toronto.

Thanks for posting the 1812 war info to my 3rd great grandfather Malcolm Wright. I never new this about him. Malcolm Wright has a uncle named Malcolm Wright who was born in Scotland in CA 1755. Malcolm, fought in the war for the English as a Sergeant in the

King's American Regiment under the command of Edmund Fanning, Esquire. After the war he resettled in Nova Scotia and possibly later in New Brunswick before moving to Upper Canada in York Township in 1795. On April 14th 1796, Malcolm, petitioned for some land in York, Upper Canada, which stated: “ I was in the King's American Regiment the whole of the late War with America and at the close thereof returned with the rest of his Majesty's subjects to Nova Scotia where Iremained until coming to York in Upper Canada about 8 months

Fred -

Thank you for your interest in the Harrison men in relation to the war and to Nancy Harrison. Unfortunately, I don't know much of anything about Nancy, yet. She married Thomas Humberstone, was the mother of Priscilla Elizabeth (Humberstone) Gardhouse, who married Edward Gardhouse, who became the mayor of Rochelle, Illinois. Their daughter Amelia Ann Gardhouse, married James Orlando McConaughy. Amelia and J.O. McConaughy had my grandmother, Ada Jeannette (McConaughy) May on 1/1/1890. Unfortunately, I'm a woman, and I tend to be more interested in family relationships than in wars. That's my shortcoming, I guess!
