Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
Hi Folks, anyone researching the Bronson/Brunson/Brownson line? I'm searching for descendants of Daniel Brunson Sr. (1757-1799). Ensign Daniel Brunson fought with the loyalist troops in the revolutionary war and was evacuated as part of the 3rd fleet sailing to New Brunswick in the fall of 1783. He spent only a few years on his script in the Nashwaack valley before moving his young family to Caldwell's Manor in the Eastern Townships. My gggrandfather Martin Brunson (1789-1878) was born at Caldwell's Manor and moved into eastern Ontario eventually homesteading in Hastings Co. on a grant he received for his service in the war of 1812-14. I visited the Missisquoi Museum in Stanbridge East a few years ago and found considerable information on the family. I'm hoping to find some cousins that can help me fill a few gaps.
