I have relatives who are Loyalists. 1 is an ancestor but may not have settled in Canada. I descend from a sister of Jacob Holder. She married into a strong patriot family in 1785 (Rex). Is Vollink connected to Volck? It looks familiar.

My Loyalist ancestors fought in Butler's Rangers, which disbanded and settled near Niagara Ontario after the Revolution. Happy to share info with others, I have access to some Butler's Rangers resources.

My Loyalist ancestors names were LARROWAY, VAN VALKENBURG & VOLLICK (FOLLICK
