    I appreciated finding this much information about the U.E.L. and their refuge in Canada. William Bell, my 4th g-grandfather, came from Scotland in 1772 with his family. Ultimately, in 1780, he was ‘escorted’ across the Canadian border, leaving all goods behind. He and his two sons joined the British forces, and were later given land grants by the King. My big question has to do with the wife and six girls who were fending for themselves while William, son William, Jr. and son Duncan were fighting with Gen Burgone, among others.
