  • Notes 
    • **********
      The following is from "The Munros of Mallorytown (and Beyond!)" - compiled by Jo Ann Munro Tuskin - Apr 2008:

      Catherine Leech sent a petition from Augusta Townshiip in Aug 1789: "That your Petitioner had considerable property taken from her in the Colonies, & her husband was murdered by the rebels, on account of his attachment to the British Government. That your petitioner is Desirous of becoming an Inhabitant in this district. She therefore prays the Home board will be pleased to Grant her two Hundred acres of land, as a compensation for her Losses and Sufferings." As a result, she was "admitted for two hundred acres". (NA RG 1, L 3, Upper Canada Land Petitions, vol 306, 'L' Bundle, Miscellaneous, No. 158, microfilm C-2138)

      C2490
      I the subscriber do certify that in the Fall of 1782 - was sent by General Haldimand, then Commander and Chief of the Province of Quebec etc etc etc - as a ??? to take a number of prisoners, men, women - to East Bay at the south end of Lake Champlain in the State of New York - and when he arrived there found three families waiting for an oppontunity to get to Saint Johns in the Lower Provinces - and after Landing the prisoners sent those boats back to Crown Point to the shiping - and the families waiting (Viz) - Mrs. Spooner and Children, John Atkins, wife and children and Mrs. Catherine Leech and Children - and do certify that Mrs. Catharine Proctor is Daughter to the said Mrs. Leech. Given under my hand in Yonge this 17th Jan'y 1808. Thomas Smyth J.P.

      We have assumed that Catharine Leech, widow, was the Katharine Reid who married John Munro in Norwalk, Connecticut, 30 Oct 1766, for two reasons: an old, hand-written family notebook has the name Kathryne Reid' beside Daniel's name; and the name Reid has been passed down in her son Samuel's line as well as in her grandson Timothy's line and a note from a cousin says that he (Timothy) wanted the name Reid given to his grandson as 'it was his grandmother's name'.
      **********

      Katherine's daughter, Freelove, is the only child at law and heiress of Thomas Golden. He settled before 1796. In the original documents, the last 3 girls are listed as "illegitimate".
