Pamela Bate Hello Roy,
I was wondering if it would be okay to give your email to my cousin as he is wanting to know about your line of Havens and it would be best if he gets it from a direct line relative. Reg is very interested in getting some copies of the papers on the Revolutionary War of 1775, any idea where he could find these papers?

Regards Pam from down under

Roy Gardner Hi Pam. I don't have anything myself. The Havens House museum might be able to help. My GGG grandfather Wm. Sr. emigrated to Canada prior to the war of 1812. That was between the US and Britian. He was loyal to the King so was forced to leave the US and flee to Canada. As far as I know from census data he did not serve in the military here due to ailments preventing him from doing so. I did have a smart match at one point from a HAVENS descendant who purported to have some research but I was not able to connect with him. I will go back and see if I can find that site. It's a while ago so might not have any luck. Cheers

Roy Gardner Hi Pam. Just wondering how you are doing. Its been a while. Has Reg been able to find any papers on the Havens in the American Revolution? I just read a great book titled The Loyalists of Massachussets and the Other Side of the American Revolution by: James Stark. There is only one Haven mentioned in the book briefly but they were in the midst of what took place. I highly recommend this book for its insight. Look forward to hearing from you.

Roy Gardner One more thing Pam. I have had my DNA analysis done for the Gardner surname and have been very successful in connecting with related families. My family tree has blossomed as a result. Have you or your cousin done this? I had mine done by FTDNA. They also have a Havens project administered by Jo Havens Wright. I have a Havens cousin near me who has done the test for this project. I highly recommend it.
