Brick Walls – Lyddie ?, married to Nathaniel Haines

I have another brick wall to post, my 3rd great-grandmother, Lyddie or Lydia, married to Nathaniel Haines in Niagara, Upper Canada in 1786. The only info I have on her is that she was the daughter of a loyalist. That’s not much to go on, most single women in Niagara at that time were daughters of loyalists.

      Yes it is, I don’t know if Haines is her maiden name, I have researched UELs with that surname in records in New York pre-revolution war and can’t find anything for her being a Hainer. The information from her petition leads me to think that she was but I don’t have any sources that say so.

      Thanks for going out of your way to find this information and share it with me, I appreciate the assistance.
