Many thanks, Danny.
The three Romboughs who served in the 43rd Battalion were carrying on family tradition of service to the Crown, as alluded to in my earliest postings in this thread. Although rather outside the purview of these forums, I thought the attached extract from the Roll of the 2nd Battalion, King's Royal Regiment of New York (largest Loyalist unit during the American Revolution) might be of some interest. This was the father (Jacob) and the oldest three of his four sons .... So far as is known, every person in Canada with the surname "Rombough" is descended from one of Jacob's four sons - Amos, William, John, and David. (I am a descendant of John.) - -
