Re: Rev. William Troy
In Response To: Re: Rev. William Troy ()

J.A.

I was raised in Detroit and used to go to Windsor for lunch all the time... it's a 5 minute drive across the Detroit River. I think your suspicion is correct and since they probably planned to move back to the states once slavery ended, they wanted all their children to be born in the U.S.

Good luck and lemme know if I can provide any other information.

: Lisa,

: Thanks for this great information. This is definitely my William
: Troy. The names of the children match the information that I
: have. This helps confirm and document information that I had and
: now I know that they were born in the United States and not
: Canada. (In fact, information that I obtained from another
: posting says that Joshua was born in Detroit, which was right
: across the river from where they were living. They must have
: purposely gone back to the United States for the children to be
: born there.)

: Thanks again for your help.
