I came across reference to two of my grandfathers: Elisha Martindale and Edward Martindale(I'm assuming Edward Curtis Martindale, given the timeline) in a letter written by the people of Lennox to their government leaders.
In it the people were upset that (summarizing): The problem with the Tories wandering free has not been addressed. They listed the two Martindale men by name in the letter.
I am still trying to fill in some blanks on these two men (specifically the name of Edward Curtis Martindale's wife. I only have her first name and not 100% that's accurate.
Does anyone know a source of court documents/information about the Tories who were tried in Massachusetts? I thought maybe it would be a new place to look for information on these men.
I'm fairly certain they both ran to Canada shortly after this letter because all of Edward's children were born there and both men died there (as far as I've been able to ascertain).
FYI: The book I found this letter in is called: History of Lenox and Richmond by Charles J. Palmer
