Is Hennion also Hemeon?I have been searc

I have been searching for the correct parentage/ancestry of Adam "HEMEON" b 1759 in either NY or NJ, probable father Philip Hemeon, mother unknown. Loyalists 1783 from New York City to Nova Scotia. Eventually settled Eel Lake, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

Adam m Plymouth MA Bathsheba JOHNSON and had a large family. Obviously he was a seafaring man. Children and grandchildren continued to marry back into United States families.

My research so far indicates that there were several HENION families, originating pre 1700 in New York City. One branch went to the Kingston NY area and became HEERMANCE, etc.

Another branch went to Tappan NY and became HERMAN.

Still another branch scattered from Kingston NY down into New Jersey and retained some form of the HENION surname.

There were also several HENIONs in New York City proper at the time in question, 1759-83.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
