And Don't Forget:One of my relatives, on my mother's side of the family, was Captain Amos Hall who was a paymaster with the Connecticut Militia. After the War of Independence he was given a land grant in upstate New Hampshire.
At that time there was no defined border between Canada and America and we wanted to establish an American population but when they drew the border, he was on the northern side. Everything was cool until the War of 1812 when he was told to either swear allegiance to the crown or leave so he stayed with his youngest son. His three oldest sons went back to the U.S.
In 1859 the youngest son, John Hall, moved to Portland, ME. And shortly there after my father's great grandfather moved to Northern Maine.
Barbara Pierce Bush was a relative to President Franklin Pierce.
