I am looking for Canadian origins of this family. It has been suggested that
this Benjamin may have been born of a loyalist family who escaped to Canada
from the colonies during the revolution. I am also looking for information

can find a listing for Benjamin BARBER ?
Looking forward to hearing from any and all of you.

Hope someone on this list will find a connection and want to see some of the
photographs (both identified and unidentified) that I have for this family.
