There were two Ferro's in Butler's Rangers during the American Revolution, and they both settled in Canada. Here is what I have:--
Andrew Ferro [Feero, Fere, Ferow, Pherow] Private soldier. Listed as killed in action on 25 Oct 1780 on Sir John Johnson's Raid int the Mohawk Valley, but in fact was a prisoner of war. Returned by 24 Jun 1782. In Captain Andrew Bradt's company, 36 years old at Niagara in 1783.
Peter Ferro [Ferrou, Pheow] Private soldier. Also listed as killed in action on 16 Oct 1780, but in fact a prisoner of war. Returned by 2 Jul 1782. In John Butler's company, 24 yeaers old with a wife in 1783. Wife and one child in 1786. Land entitlement in 1792 totalled 600 acres. On the UE List, 1797. Granted land in Bertie, Humberstone and Crownland townships in Upper Canada. Six children.
Any info appreciated. Please email me as I do not read this forum very often. email@example.com
