RE: CAPT JACOB WEEGAR
Hi, Sharlean:

Please send your e-mail address to kathrynjoly@gmail.com and I will fire off a large report on Jacob's descendants. This is a well-researched Palatine family with loyalties to the British. Many, many military men in the family. In terms of searching for grave sites, you should be aware that many of the cemeteries (and towns) along the St. Lawrence River were flooded in the 1950s to make way for the St. Lawrence Seaway. Families had the choice to move only the markers, the bodies or both to cemeteries located on higher ground. You will learn about this at Pioneer Memorial at Upper Canada Village. If you have time, another great place to visit is the Lost Villages Museum located between Long Sault and Cornwall on Highway #2 (east of Upper Canada Village). You can google it for more info and location. All that to say, that many of these people ended up not where they originally buried. Many of the original graveyards are now under water and their occupants may still rest there (depending on family wishes). Hope this helps. Have a great research trip! Kathryn

RE: CAPT JACOB WEEGAR
Hi, Sharlean:

Yes, Jacob Weegar (1755-1827) was my 4X great-grandfather. His great-grand-daughter, Elizabeth (Libbie) Weegar (1871-1952)was my father's grandmother. She married Walter McIntosh in 1893.

You probably already know this but Jacob was a soldier in the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of New York. He came from the US in 1783 as a United Empire Loyalist. I show his birthplace as Fort Sumter, Rhinebeck, NY.

Hope this helps,
Kathryn
