tomyroots: I started in Maine and into New Brunswick beyond the Loyalist movement and into limbo...lol
alt: I can imagine.... I have some Canadian connections... Ontario, Essex County... Malden & Sandwich, but they are much later , like the late 1700's and ca 1810 or so.
vkn: Limbo is good lol
Ingrid_Doweary: Loyalist movement before or after the French and Indian War?
tomyroots: before I'm also trying to make a connection with Thomas Peters from the mid 1600's
vkn: I am locked in the deep South
Ingrid_Doweary: Okay. Any connection with Scottish immigrant and or Native Americans?
tomyroots: what names are you researching some native but church records and court records call the names I'm looking at african
Ingrid_Doweary: Dowearys of Frederick and Carroll County, MD prior to 1860.
vkn: African is good
tomyroots: were there any other spellings to the surname Doweary? s yes it is
Ingrid_Doweary: Tomyroots, do you have any indication whether any ancestors were indentured servants. And yes, there's dowery, dowry, dow and dowell.
alt: these would be in the Nova Scotia & New Brunswick areas tomyroots?
tomyroots: yes they would
Ingrid_Doweary: Oh okay, sounds like a different region from where I was thinking.
tomyroots: no servants that far back but some from the loyalists were escaped slaves
alt: I haven't read or done muc, if any research in those areas tomyroots muc=much
tomyroots: I'm looking at Wheary for a surname also is why I was wondering about Doweary
Ingrid_Doweary: Have you researched the geographical histories of those locations, Tomyroots?
