Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2009 20:57:58 -0800 (PST)

My great grandfather came from Yarmouth Ontario Canada prior to the American Civil War. The name is Rees, Nelson Rees, Florance Rees, Dewitt Rees,Niles Rees. I know their ancestors were Tories in the Revolutionary War and they had to flee to Canada, one of the Rees's were in the Wyoming Valley Massacre, I think in Pennsylvanis. I would like to travel to Yarmouth to look in the cemetaries to see if I can find some of my ancestors. Thank you for your help.

Query Text: REES, Samuel, Capt, 3rd Battalion of Tryon County Militia 1776/77. Seeking any information on him. Parents, Spouse, any children. Thank you. This is all that I have for him: “Captain Samuel Rees served in the Third Battalion of Tryon County Militis, 1776/77. Sometime in 1776 or 1777. Sometime after a raid that destroyed his home, Captain Samuel Rees moved out of the area.” Capt. Samuel Rees, 1776, Third Regiment, Tyron County, New York. "New York in the Revolution as Colony and State, Vol. I - Extracts; Publisher:J. B. Lyon Co. ; Albany, NY, 1904; Page 179. My comments: "Moved out of the area" indicates to this complier that Capt. Rees left the Mohawk Valley area for parts unknown, and thus was not the Samuel Rees on the 1790 Census, Canjahorey, Montgomery Co. NY. Can anyone on this forum identify this Samuel Rees?
