Family history

In 1795 James petitioned the State of Vermont for the return of his father's lands that were taken after the Revolution and was granted the unsold lands in Londonderry Township. In 1797 he petitioned the State for his father's lands in Windham Township and was granted the unsold lands. Both townships had an area of 69 square miles. The family left Vermont in 1817 and moved to Grafton, Northumberland, Ontario, Canada where James and Mary lived out their lives. James had sponsored several relatives' educations with the sale of his father's lands.

Military service

James served in the Queens Rangers with his father in the American revolution. They mainly protected the Canadian border during the war.
