New Jersey Families

I'm happy to announce that there is a 6-volume set of books on the New Jersey PEER family. Jacob and Anna Peer left New Jersey for Upper Canada (present day Ontario) during the American Revolution. Three of their sons (Edward, Levi and Jacob Jr.) returned to America after the War of 1812 with their families. Edward and Levi settled in Pennsylvania, with Levi's children moving on to Illinois (although his son Levi Jr. returned to Upper Canada). Jacob Jr. settled in Michigan.

The Peer family were loyal to the British Crown, and suffered from persecution in New Jersey throughout the American Revolution. Jacob and his family left Sussex County New Jersey for Upper Canada in the summer of 1796. Four of Jacob s sons, Jacob Jr., Edward, John and Philip Peer petitioned for land one year later. They settled in the Hamilton area of what was then the wilderness of Upper Canada. This book discusses the lives of Jacob, his wife and their children in those early years. Descendants will enjoy seeing early documents such as land petitions and wills.
