1776 New York City New York City occupied by the British


NY Area Key Chronology
New York City, 1776 early July...Situated on the southern tip of Manhattan Island, it was surrounded by the Hudson River on the west, the East River on the east, and the Harlem River to the north:... the city was dominated by Brooklyn Heights across the East River on Long Island.

The History of American Wars from 1745 to 1918, T. Harry Williams, p59

"John Adams estimated that at the outbreak of the war, one-third of the colonists were warm patriots, one-third clung to their allegiance to the Crown (usually at great personal cost), and one-third were neutral, took no sides, and simply wished to be left alone. p 256



Opposing friends in the war, he said, "is the sharpest thorn on which I ever set my foot" p 666

"In addition to religion, nationality, family, and sectional antagonism, '... the age and temperament of individuals had often an influence in fixing their political character. Old men were seldom warm Whigs: they could not relish the great changes which were daily taking place; attached to ancient forms and habits, they could not readily accommodate themselves to new systems. Few of the very rich were active in forwarding the Revolution....'



"The Tories, like the patriots were moved by a variety of motives,... Most Tories kept their opinions to themselves and weathered the storm as best they could. Many of them were individuals respected and liked in their own communities. In such cases, their courage in making the decision to oppose the majority of their friends and neighbors, not to mention in many instances members of their own family, and their persistence in the face of public pressure, usually won for them a grudging respect, and public opinion protected them from open persecution." p 658-9

They were married 1759?79?, of Huntington, LI, Nassau, NY

Abigail was baptized as an adult on 13 Mar 1793 in N-Br, Canada

Abigail later married John McCord Lamoreaux

Cluff, Isabelle Lamoreaux Family Group Sheet for Simon Losee & Margaret Brush

In thinking how we can verify Abigail’s [Losee] birth I did some figuring. She must have been born in 1778 as last child was born 1821 – age 43. [note 1821-1778=43. married 18005 – age 27 - md 1805-1778=27 at marriage] Could she have born a child at 53 if born 1768? Died 1839 – age 61 at death. Her husband would have been 10 or 6 years younger than she if born 1768 – which is not likely. However at time of sailing (1783) She would have been age 5. David was yet unborn.”

In 1836, the leader of the Mormons, the Prophet Joseph Smith, visited Pickering and Whitby, and informed the local converts that all members of the religion were to travel to the 'far west'. Two groups left Canada in 1837 and 1838, and most eventually settled in Nauvoo,"
