The Peer family left New Jersey for Upper Canada (present day Ontario) after the American Revolution. I was excited to see that the New Jersey Archives has earlier records pre 1800 and hope to have time to search them all next week!

My Ward family also left N.Y. in 1783. I have gotten other records from there but I still need that smoking gun. Maybe today will be the day.
