Re: Ballem from MA

a widow of an unknown BAUM, thought to have been a German Loyalist, arrived at St John's Island (now PEI) in 1783. Very pregnant, she and her son Peter Baum, age unknown, arrived on the ship "POLLY" as part of a Loyalist immigration. She became the 2nd wife of NICHOLAUS HENKELL who changed his name to Nicholas Henkell Jenkins after arriving on the island.

The child born in 1783 was named William Jenkins. The arrival info above was taken from a survey questionaire completed by William.

Does anyone have any other info on her prior to PEI?
