The Peer family, loyal to the British Crown, suffered from persecution in New Jersey throughout the American Revolution. Philip Peer and his family left Sussex County New Jersey for Upper Canada in the summer of 1796. After his first wife Ester Dunn died Philip married Susan Griniaus. This book discusses the lives of Philip, his two wives, and their children and grandchildren in those early years. Descendants will enjoy seeing early documents such as land petitions, family photographs, newspaper clippings, and wills.
