According to a descendant, these names came from oral histories related by McConnell relatives from New York that Dr. Lynn McConnell had personally interviewed in the 1920s or so.
    My latest clue came from one of your trees: Isaac Storm Platt and Pamilla ? Platt. We have never even found a lead on Pamilla and it seems that she may be a candiate! Her age fits perfectly, she is from the US, and she named one of her children with the middle name McConnell. Not the sort of hard evidence I'd like to see, but a few clues to work on....

James Andrew Moore

  • Marriage*: circa 1892; per email from Travis Smith, Nov. 20, 2004.; Principal=Annie Ida Stark
  • Residence*: 1893; Salt Coats, Saskatchewan; "I see that you have multiple sisters for Lillian and I was curious if you had any additional information to help determine which of the sisters is my G-Grandmothers mother? Based on the ages and names my assumption would be Annie Starke, b. 1873 - the age is a decent match and my G-Grandmother's middle name is Anna. Whichever of the sisters it is, married James Andrew Moore by 1892. In 1893 they were living in Salt Coats, Saskatchewan where Beatrice was born." per email from Travis Smith, Nov. 20, 2004.1
  • Residence: April 1901; Range 2 Twp. 24, Assiniboia East, North West Territories; Salt Coats is a small place on the Canadian Pacific Railroad, about 30 km south east of Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

Capt. George Singleton1

M, #38169, b. circa 1750, d. 20 September 1789
  • Birth*: circa 1750; Ireland; " ... Irish-born Montrealer George Singleton ... " pg. 175, "Rebellion in the Mohawk Valley; The St. Leger Expedition of 1777", Gavin K. Watt, 2002
    "Captain George Singleton, after service in the 1776 war with the United States was granted 5,000 acres of land, part of which now forms the city of Belleville. John Singleton, the son of George Singleton, settled near what is now Brighton and the area in 1811 became known as Singleton's Corners." page 51 of The Tobey Book
  • Marriage*: circa April 1788; Ontario; Date estimated Apr 1788 per birth of son John in Jan 1789.
    "... Her 1/2 sister Nancy McArthur married Alexander Chisholm and they moved to Cramahe from Thurlow in 1810. This Alexander Chisholm and Nancy's first husband Capt. George Singleton are considered founders of Belleville (Singleton's Creek)." per email from Andrew & Kathy Way, Nov. 21, 2004.; Principal=Nancy "Ann" McArthur3
  • Death*: 20 September 1789; Ernestown Twp., Lennox & Addington Co., Ontario; Date Sep 20 1789 per Loyalist List - Buried Sep 20 1789. "By September 1789, Singleton and Ferguson decided to go to Montreal with their furs, and to take their wives to visit their families in Ernestown. The Singletons now had a young son, George, just nine months old. Packing their batteaux, they set out. Barely more than a day away, Capt. Singleton became ill. They stopped at the Indian Reservation to get medicine from Capt. Isaac Brant. This didn't help but they pushed on to Ernestown. In nine days Capt. Singleton was dead and so was his servant, Johnson. Lt. Ferguson returned to their clearing with the women, but fate had not finished with them. By Christmas of 1789, Lt. Ferguson too, was dead, leaving the women and baby alone in the dead of winter. The body of Lt. Ferguson was kept in the storeroom until spring when he was buried in what was to become the Old Taylor Burying Ground (on the corner of George and Edmund Streets and below Dundas Street). The women spent the winter together sharing one cup of meal per day between them. Dr. Canniff in his history relates this story, but doesn't say what happened to Mrs. Singleton afterwards." pg. 5, The Story of the Singletons, The Rambling River: History of Thurlow Township by Mary G.

  • Note: 6 August 1777; Oriskany, Kingsland District, New York, U.S.A.; "Recovering, he swept up his firelock, fired at Lieutenant George Singleton, and had the satisfaction of seeing him go down. Later, Major Clyde picked up his victim's fusil as a trophy. .... When the lights pulled back, Singleton was carried to the rear with an ugly wound in his leg, enraged with the passion of the charge and the pain." pg. 171, "Rebellion in the Mohawk Valley; The St. Leger Expedition of 1777", Gavin K. Watt, 2002
  • Note: 6 August 1777; Royal Yorker's Camp, Fort Stanwix, New York, U.S.A.; "Willett's force travelled the road for a half-mile towards the Lower Landing when it came upon the Royal Yorkers' main camp. The obvious lack of activity in the tent lines was like a magnet. Captian Van Benscouten's advance guard attached so rapidly that Willett later reported "his extraordinary spirit". The tiny Yorker's quarter guard was easily driven off, but not before giving the alarm to Sir John, who was in his tent talking with the wounded Lieutenant Singleton. There is no contemporary record of what happened next, but Sir John must have abandoned Singleton and rushed to his family. The baronet would not risk his wife and children to the vengeance of his enemies for a second time, especially with such vivid memories of the scenes in the ravine." pg. 191, "Rebellion in the Mohawk Valley; The St. Leger Expedition of 1777", Gavin K. Watt, 2002
  • Note: 6 August 1777; Oriskany, Kingsland District, New York, U.S.A.; "According to Surgeon Younglove, on the march back, the Irish-born Montrealer George Singleton, whose leg wound may have been playing him hell, betrayed his Celtic roots and urged some passing Indians to kill the surgeon. They demurred, providing yet another mysterious event in Younglove's account. Singleton spoke Mohawk and his request would have been crystal clear, so it seems unlikely that the vengeful Indians would have ignored such a plea." pg. 175, "Rebellion in the Mohawk Valley; The St. Leger Expedition of 1777", Gavin K. Watt, 2002
  • Note: 8 August 1777; Fort Stanwix, Kinglsand District, New York, U.S.A.; " ...

  • Note: 22 August 1777; Fort Stanwix, Kingsland District, New York, U.S.A.; "The garrison now held sixteen deserters and prisoners ... Other than Singleton, the highest ranking prisoner was Serjeant John Lawrence of Duncan's company." pg. 258, "Rebellion in the Mohawk Valley; The St. Leger Expedition of 1777", Gavin K. Watt, 2002
  • Note: 22 May 1780; Mohawk Valley, New York, U.S.A.; "May 22: Sir John Johnson's expedition to Johnstown recruits 120 men and destroys parts of the lower Mohawk Valley", pg. 18 and ... "Veeder, a militia captain, was released in promise for the highly-valued Lieutenant George Singleton of the KRR Light Infantry Company who had been wounded at Oriskany and captured at Fort Stanwix on the same day in '77." from pg. 78 of "The Burning of the Valleys: Daring Raids From Canada Against the New York Frontier in the Fall of 1780", by Gavin K. Watt, Dunburn Press, Toronto
    Note: This sentence re George Singleton appears in the section that discusses the May 1780 raid of Sir John Johnson into the Mohawk Valley, in preparation for more extensive raids in Octorber - (and to collect Mr Johnson's valuable collection of plate which had been buried in the back yard of Johnson Hall). Numerous rebels, mostly Tyron Militia, were captured during this raid and this fellow, Veeder, was one of them. I wonder when Singleton was actually released??
  • Residence*: 1784; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "Col. Alex Chisholm and his brother had served with Gen. Burgoyne and Capt. Singleton and his brother-in-law, Lt. Isaac Ferguson, had been officers of the Queen's Rangers and had first received grants in Ernestown." pg. 5, The Story of the Singletons, The Rambling River: History of Thurlow Township by Mary G. Plumpton
  • Residence: 1784; Conc 1 & 2 Lots 5 & 6, Thurlow Twp., Singleton's Creek, Hastings Co., Ontario; "After 1784 the first Loyalists established themselves along the front townships of Hastings County, although only Alexander Chisholm and Captain George Singleton are likely to have had their houses close to the river. In Thurlow Township, Alexander Chisholm held lots 3 of concessions I and II, a section of land including much of west Belleville. Like many early settlers Chisholm engaged in some Indian trade. Captain Singleton's land, lots 5 and 6 in the first two concessions, took in much of eastern Belleville. With his brother-in-law, Lieutenant Israel Ferguson, Singleton opened a trading post on the east side of Moira River, possibly on the lot reserved for the Mississaugas. Because he was capable, intelligent, humane and able to get along with the Indians, his trading venture prospered. From about 1785 to 1790 the small community was known as Singleton's Creek and the river was referred to as Singleton's River, leading some historians to regard Singleton as the founder of Belleville. Both Singleton and Ferguson are believed to have died in 1789." pg. 32, Historic Hastings, by Gerald E. Boyce
  • Residence: 1786; Conc 1 & 2 Lots 5 & 6, Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "Being more interested in fur trading than farming, Capt. Singleton, with his wife, Margaret Canniff (daughter of James), his sister and her husband (Lt. Ferguson) and their servants, a couple named Johnson, took his larger grant in what was then an unsurveyed township. This was lots number 5 and 6, 1st and 2nd Concessions including the Bay Front, problably in 1786 or early 1787. At that time there were about 30 acres of plains along the north shore of the Bay (east of the river) where early French explorers and missionaries had reported seeing Indian camps. Here on a height of land on the East Hill, they built a large log house and started trading with the Indians. At that time, Sugar Island, near the mouth of Stoco Lake, was a meeting place in spring where the Indians gathered and made maple sugar (hence its name), and also brought their furs. Here, too, Singleton and Ferguson established a trading post. Each season the Indians would gather at the mouth of the river, which was called Sag-on-ask-on-a, and with special ceremonies would offer gifts of tobacco to the river god to make the hunting plentiful. Trading with the Indians was good and soon Capt. Singleton add a large storeroom for the furs and maple sugar he had traded." pg. 5, The Story of the Singletons, The Rambling River: History of Thurlow Township by Mary G. Plumpton
  • Residence: before 1787; Conc 1 & 2 Lots 5 & 6, Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "Property Owners Before 1787: 1st and 2nd Concessions: ... Lots 5 & 6 - Capt. G. Singleton" list pg. 4, The Rambling River by Mary G. Plumpton
  • Note: September 1789; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; The story in the Death Tag is very useful but is slightly mistaken. The son of Capt. George Singleton was named John, not George, being the John Singleton who settled at Brighton. Also, the wife of Capt. George Singleton was Nancy McArthur, daughter of another soldier, John McArthur, and not Margaret Canniff, who actually was the wife of John Singleton. These points seem clear by various genealogy sources availalbe today.

  • Marriage*: December 1791; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Upper Canada; "This is referring to Alexander Chisholm, husband of Nancy (McArthur) Singleton. He actually migrated in 1773, and was in the Congregation of Rev John Stuart in Johnstown in 1774. Stuart presided over the wedding of Alexander Chisholm and Nancy (McArthur) Singleton in the winter of 1791, over the objections of Rev Langhorn, because Chisholm lived in Langhorne's territory. Perhaps as a concesssion, Langhorn did the babtisms of their children." per email from Andrew Way, Jan 8, 2006.
    Census and land records suggest that Nancy McArthur, widow of Captain George Singleton, married Capt. Alexander Chisholm around 1793. She had one son from her marriage with Capt.

  • Residence*: circa 1790; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "The Belleville area received its first main group of settlers in 1789 when some fifty persons crossed over from Prince Edward County to settle in Thurlow. Most of them went up the river five miles to the neighbourhood of Foxboro where they formed "a compact settlement". Among these settlers was John Taylor who shortly returned to the front of Thurlow where he purchased one hundred acres of Captain Singleton's property. for many years Belleville's eas hill would be called Taylor Hill and the Taylor Burying Ground, the first one in Belleville and perhaps the county would be the final resting place of many of the hardy pioneers." pg. 32, Historic Hastings by Gerald E.

In Thurlow Township, Alexander Chisholm held lots 3 of concessions I and II, a section of land including much of west Belleville. Like many early settlers Chisholm engaged in some Indian trade. Captain Singleton's land, lots 5 and 6 in the first two concessions, took in much of eastern Belleville. With his brother-in-law, Lieutenant Israel Ferguson, Singleton opened a trading post on the east side of Moira River, possibly on the lot reserved for the Mississaugas. Because he was capable, intelligent, humane and able to get along with the Indians, his trading venture prospered. From about 1785 to 1790 the small community was known as Singleton's Creek and the river was referred to as Singleton's River, leading some historians to regard Singleton as the founder of Belleville. Both Singleton and Ferguson are believed to have died in 1789." pg. 32, Historic Hastings, by Gerald E. Boyce

  • Note: circa 1800; Conc B Lot 34, Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; Alexander Chisholm appears to have had much trouble obtaining and keeping land in the turbulent years after the Revolutionary War. He seems to have settled on land he saw as possible settlement material and then tried to make it work out with the Authorities. He was thwarted at the mouth of the Moira River where he and his brothers were located on lots in the area of the later Belleville City before the first survey of Thurlow Township. He had settled there along with Capt. George Singleton before 1786. Then, he tried to asked for Lot 36 of Sidney or Lot 11 of the 9th Township. In Murray, he appears to have settled on the land at Conc B Lot 34 before it was surveyed and later found out it was Crown Reserve. Not concerned with that, he went ahead building mills and making "improvements". It appears as if he eventually manage to obtain a lease for the land in partnership with Aaron Greely who would have had closer ties with the Authorities since he was involved in land agency with Asa Danforth. Unfortunately, when the bubble burst on Danforth and Greely regarding both the Danforth Road and the settlement issues in several townships, Alexander Chisholm was left holding the bag - the land at Conc B Lot 34.
