John and Lidia (___) VanEmburgh

Fourth Generation

Born 8 October and baptised 4 Nov 1751, Johannes was to be better known as John. Little is known about Lidia.
Their children were baptised in Christ Church, Shelburne, Nova Scotia by Rev. Thomas B. Howland.
Nelly: bap 15 June 1796;m. David White
James: bap 16 Sep 1798
*Abraham: bap 5 Oct 1804
Joshua: bap 5 Oct 1804

When the brothers left NewJersey aboard ship to Nova Scotia (as loyalists) John was single. There is more to be learned about these men.
Some have surmised that John VanEmburgh married late in life and that he may have died shortly before 1804.
