    Notes 
    • From: W. L. Irish - He came to Danby, Vermont in the spring of 1767 with his family, and erected a log cabin on the now, Nelson Colvin farm. On March 14, 1769, he was appointed the Collector of Danby, Vermont. In 1793, he moved his family to Adolphustown, Ontario, Canada. In his Will dated May 25, 1810, Peter states: "That he is of the Township of Haldimand in the County of Northumberland in the District of Newcastle and the Providence of Upper Canada".

      Dear Patrick.
      Most interested in your message. I am a descendant of John Irish, son of Peter Irish Sr. Daniel's brother.
      According to Libby Hancocks,a prominent UEL genealogist, there might be a problem with the names of Peter Sr's children.
      In his will he lists..Abraham, Robinson, John, Daniel, Jedediah, Sarah and Mary
      From the book Sons & Daughters of Ontario Loyalists by W.D.Reid we have listed
      Abraham, MAYLON,RANSELAER, Daniel, Jedediah, Sarah, and Mary Ann.
      From the Irish History we have Abraham, Robinson, John, Daniel, Jedediah, Sarah and Mary.
      I have never heard of Ranselaer or Maylon. Nor has W.D.Reid listed my GGGGGrandfather John, while others have. I feel you will have quite a few folks contacting you. I have quite good documentation,I feel from Peter Sr.'s grandson Peter Irish (1801-1886) often known as Dr. Peter Irish, to the present. Of course many gaps to fill in(and would love to) Interesting to note the same first names being repeated in your genealogy list as mine and others of this line, and how their birth dates are so similiar, etc. Regards Barb Neufeld
