Family History : A distant cousin, Kathleen Peters, has compiled an excellent website on this family and their descendants. The site actually begins with Thomas' father Samuel and mother, Mary, also Loyalists who settled in New Brunswick. I note that Kathleen is listed as being a proven descendant of Thomas in the web pages available to executive members. She may no longer be a member of UELAC, given that she is busy working and perhaps still raising a family. I understand that she will not mind having a link to her website, but it may not be duplicated in any fashion without Kathleen's permission. She can be contacted via
