Just came across this old posting, and for the record Abraham DEVINS Sr was not a Loyalist. He served in the Northampton Co PA Militia in the Rev War and that's Rebel not Loyalist. Arrived in Canada about 1793 no doubt because of the availability of land. Two of his sons married CHAPMANS and a case can be made for the CHAPMANS being Loyalists, but not DEVINS. I am a descendant too.
