      Both Elisha Parker and Isaac Robins, who still lived in log cabins in 1783, had been active defenders of Nova Scotia during the war. Robins was part of the garrison at Fort Howe that guarded the mouth of the St. John River while Parker had served as a minuteman across the Bay of Fundy in Cornwallis. Elihu Conwell was both a minuteman and a member of a loyal privateer crew.

      Nathan 5 Nevers. He married 15 Sep 1793 in Sunbury Co., N.B.,4 Sarah Parker. Nathan died in 1802 in York Co., N.B. Elizabeth S. Sewell, Sunbury County N.B. Marriages 1766-1788 Reference #D0057
      Nathan Nevers and Sarah Parker were married 15 Sep 1793. [Source: Anglican Church Records, Maugerville, Sunbury Co., N.B.]

      Nathan was probably a son of Jabez and Hannah (Thompson) Nevers. Jabez Nevers was granted one half of Lot No. 99, 250 acres, in Maugerville, Sunbury Co., N.B., 4 Jul 1770 (Dept. of Natural Resources, Crown Land Grant Index). On the 19th of February, 1799, Nathan Nevers of the Parish of Maugerville, Yeoman, and Sarah his wife, sold to James Taylor of the same place, for 300 pounds, land in Maugerville, Lot No. 99, with Island rights. (Sunbury County, N.B., Records, Vol. 6, p. 338). This was the lot that Jabez sold to Nathan 18 Feb 1790. My theory is that Jabez was Nathan's father.

      Provincial Archives of N.B., RS95, Sunbury County, N.B., Records, Vol. 7, microfilm F5544, p. 60: 21 Oct 1799, Nathan and Sarah Nevers r Maugerville 11 pounds, sell to Abijah Palmer Jr. of Sheffield, one half of Lot 16 in first division on Middle Island, the whole lot containing 7? acres. Royal Gazette (Fredericton, N.B.), 22 Dec 1802: All persons having any demands against the estate of Nathan Nevers, late of the County of York and Parish of St. Marys, deceased, are requested to present the same duly attested within three months from this date. And all those indebted to the said Estate are desired to make immediate payment to John Wilmot, Administrator, Fredericton, 24 Oct 1802. Provincial Archives of N.B., RS75, Probate Court Records, York Co., N.B., Vol. 1, p. 45: John Wilmot appointed administrator of the Estate of Nathan Nevers, 6 Aug 1802, by Hon.
