Leah – re Edmund Horton

I don’t see an Edmund in the books I have but there are a number of Horton names (36). There are Ederald, Edward, Ernest and  Everett first names starting with an E in the names that include descendants.

Lorine, I know Issac Van Valkenburg was a Butler's Ranger and this surname morphed to Vollick but would you have any info on Isaac's parents who may have been Isaac VanValkenburgh and Jannetje Clement who lived on the Susquehanna River in PA and then lived in New York?

Leah, I don't see Edmund Horton in the muster rolls of Butler's Rangers but there are other Hortons here:

It is also essential that you check the book An Annotated Nominal Roll of Butler's Rangers 1777-1784 with Documentary Sources by William A. Smy.

I am looking for information on Loyalst Rufus Green. I see he had land in Kingston, New Brunswick, Canada. I know he had a daughter named Sarah Green who married Joseph Stackhouse. I also know he came from Courtlandt Manor, New york. I would love to find out who his parents were as well as his wife and Childrens names. I found info that when he went to NS and NB, he had a wife and 2 children over 10yrs old, and 2 children under 10yrs old. Any help would be great!

Does anyone know anything about Edmund Horton who served in Butler's Rangers and after the war went to the Niagara or Lincoln area of Ontario? I believe I'm connected to him through his son, Emanuel, but there isn't much info on Edmund out there. Any help is appreciated.
