While I do not have your Joshua's parents in my database I have some leads
There were 2 Cadman families who went to Ontario as Loyalists:
#1. John E. Cadman and his son John from Tryon County, NY.
Source: THE OLD UNITED EMPIRE LOYALISTS LIST, APPENDIX B
"Cadman, Senr., John E District Osnabruck. Soldier R.R.N.Y., Muster Roll,
P.L. 2d, 1786."
"Cadman, Junr., John do R. R. N. Y. Muster Roll, young man, P.L. 2, 1786."
#2. William Cadman, b. about 1745. [[my line. I've collected quite a bit
of information on this line.]]
William Cadman & his first wife, Mary had 3 children:
1. Asa, 1768, settled in Fredericksburgh Township, m. Margaret Dorothy
Miller. I know of 3 children (Alpheus, Asa 1808, Jacob 1811)
2. Amy, 1767
3. Elizabeth, 1774
William & his second wife, Anne had 5 children:
5. Alpheus, settled in Fredericksburgh and married Sarah Taylor 24 Oct 1802.
I know of 3 children (Gamaliel, James, Mary)
7. Joshua, b, abt 1795, settled in Fredericksburgh, married 1. Mary McMullen,
married 2, Mary Sills. They had seven children including Joshua M., b. 8 Dec
1825, who married Catherine Benn and had 3 girls born in South
8. William, b. 1802, m. 1829. settled in Fredericksburgh.
William & his third wife Dorothy Lloyd had 1 child:
9. Anna, born 1 Jan 1807 [[my line]].
Your Joshua is son of Asa or Alpheus or John Junior.
This should give you something to look into . Or at least the chance to
eliminate some people. Please keep in touch, I'm interested in what you find,
and can share more on William Cadman.
