Hello to all from yer Lake Superior. Thank you for your site. Most excellent. I am researching Isaac PRESTON, 1777-1866, from Market Hill, County Armagh, Ireland. He and his wife, Sarah PORTER, arrived in the US c. 1806, and settled in the Amsterdam (Mohawk) area. He was a stonemason, but as a British sympathizer during the War of 1812, he was imprisoned. Whether in a local jail or a state prison, I don't know. During his 2 year sentence, he helped to build the prison walls at Ossining on the Hudson. By 1818, the whole family had left for Ontario. Two sons were born in New York, Alexander born in Feb. 1810, and Porter, Sept. 1813, both in Amsterdam. We have not been able to locate records of Isaac's trial and imprisonment from inquiries in Albany and Washington, DC. Any help at all for info on Isaac and his Amsterdam days would be appreciated. Yours truly, Cliff Huber ggg-gson. Cliff Huber, R R 1 Kakabeka Falls, ONT Canada, P0T 1W0 Email:chuber@tbaytel.net or chuber@alumni.lakeheadu.ca
