Thanks for adding the picture for Ziba Phillips (served with the Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada during War of 1812). It's interesting to see what he actually looked like, even if painting is years later.

I've been working a lot more lately, plus chasing down some of my own family. Do want to get back to more 1812 stuff later. Probably start with the fatalities - I'd have at least one date correct. Jason

Hi Laurie,

Thank you for your message.

According to the Changes page for Joseph Backus (Backus-435), you created that profile on 24 Oct 2016 and added sources on 8 May 2017.

On 30 Jan 2018 I attempted to merge that profile (Backus-435) with the already pre-existing profile for Joseph at Backus-270, which was created on 27 Jan 2014 by Laura Scott with the exact same birth date, birth place, death date and death place. I then removed the children from the newer profile (Backus-435), which had no profile manager, and added the pre-existing profile (Backus-270) as the new father.

I hope that this clarifies the situation. :-)

Kind Regards,

P Małysz

I am glad you added the Canadian War of 1812 badge for Aaron Pennock... I like them on both sides of the border... we are all family... I added some info on his parentage and children, so their tree is visible... my own Aaron Pennock ancestor stayed in Vermont and served with the VT militia in the Rev War, eventually getting a pension. His deposition to get the pension tells some of the family drama, with brothers at Saratoga (on the British side) and then his service with the Americans... his elderly parents remained in Vermont and are buried there, where I have seen their graves, also visible on Find a Grave.

Re: George Billington

Sorry, no. The next residence after Ontario is in Calgary, AB. See the obituary.
