bullet *Michael Showers(61) was born in 1733 in Pennsylvania. He died in Apr 1796 in West Flamborough, Wentworth Co, Ontario.

He was married to *Hannah VanTock in 1756 in Pennsylvania. There are 2 births shown for Michael Showers in the IGI at the Family History Library. One shows him born 1723 in Providence, Pennsylvania. The other shows a Michael Schauer or Shower, born Aug. 17, 1726 at Schoharie, Albany County, New York, son of Johan Hans Michael Schauer and Elizabeth Catherina Laux or Lauk.


From "Twelve Families..An American Experience", by William F. O'Dell, 1981:

"John Aikman... in 1783 met Hannah Showers. Only a few years earlier Hannah Showers had been living in the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania, two miles north of Wilkes-Barre, when the Revolutionary War startled the family with a vengeance. Hannah's father was Michael Showers, a highly successful farmer. The home was located on the east bank of the Susquehanna River. Michael and his two oldest sons had already joined Butler's Rangers. On this particular day his daughter Hannah, 12 years old, was playing near the River with some of her brothers and sisters. Suddenly her mother and sister Sarah came running madly toward them, shouting for them to run to their river landing and get into the boats. 'They are coming, and they are destroying everything' screamed Hannah's mother. A neighbor had just warned them that some members of the Continental Army were nearing the farm and laying waste to everything in their path. Hannah's mother grabbed an apron as she ran from the house, all she could lay her hands on. The dinner was left on the stove, the cattle and sheep in the barnyard, and the horses in the stable.

Other Loyalists also scrambled into their boats, and they rowed upstream on the Susquehanna River, hoping to reach New York State before they were overtaken by the Revolutionaries. New York State was some 50 miles away, and here they could enlist the protection of other Loyalists. But Loyalists in New York were also in deep trouble, so the Showers family and others kept moving northward. They soon ran out of what meager food supplies had been collected before leaving their homes back on the Susquehanna. As they moved north the weather turned cold, and shivered during the nights when they lacked sufficient clothing.

The Showers family finally reached Lachine in Quebec, Canada, where they were billeted by the government. They were provided with scanty rations and some clothing. ...

That fall, some six months after leaving their Pennsylvania farm home, they were ordered to proceed to Fort Niagara, in their open boats. The route was dangerous and they traveled mostly by night, lying in wait for hours during the daytime. At times the younger children became so famished that several mothers considered killing their dogs in order to provide food. However, friendly Indians gave them black bean bread and berries that lasted until the party was met by British soldiers out of Fort Niagara. They were then convoyed to the Fort.

The relief brought about by the comparative safety of Fort Niagara was virtually without limit. Families greeted each other with emotional embraces. But, once again the families were billeted out, and Hannah was assigned to the home of Col. John Butler of Ranger fame. Col. and Mrs. Butler, childless, sought to adopt Hannah, but her mother refused.

Never again did the Showers family see their beautiful farm in the Wyoming Valley along the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The property was confiscated and no compensation was ever forthcoming. Michael Showers was the first Loyalist to be offically allowed to cross from Fort Niagara into Canada to farm. At the close of the war, the family moved to West Flamborough in Ancaster Township, Wentworth County, on Michael's grants of lots 12 and 13, Concession 1. He lived there until his death in 1796. In the will in which he left his estate to his wife, the last sentence read: 'I would wish the children to have learning to read and write.'

...Wolves and deer frequented the grassy plains nearby. "




From "The Loyalists in Ontario", by William D. Reid, 1973:

"In 1774 he resided in what is now Bradford County, Pa. He died in Wentworth Co., Ont., in 1796."



From "Loyalist Narratives from Upper Canada", by James J. Talman, 1946, p. xl:

"The first Loyalist settler in Upper Canada may have been Michael Showers. On May 30, 1781, Captain Walter Butler reported from Niagara that 'an old man in the Rangers named Michael Showers' had been permitted, although still fit for service, to build himself a house, and had begun planting and 'Commencing Farmer'. At the same time, Butler sought permission to have Showers's family brought to Niagara from Machiche [Lachine]. He added that four sick Rangers, namely Philip Burt, James Crowder, Jacob Van Alstyne, and Jacob Augustine were also available as settlers; but that a smith would be required for mending and making ploughshares, hoes, and axes.'"

Fort Niagara:

When the American Revolution broke out in 1776, Fort Niagara on the east side of the Niagara River was a fully developed outpost. Beginning as an Indian stockade, the French developed it into a fort which the British subsequently captured and held during the 1770's. Butler's Rangers used it as a staging ground, and as the revolution ground on, Loyalists moved toward it in greater numbers.

Before the revolution ended officially in 1783, Loyalists from the east were moving across the Niagara to the 'western land', now Niagara Township [Ontario]. The earliest settlers were Butler's Rangers released from active duty. Lieut. Adam Crysler was one of the earliest settlers. Crossing in 1781, he settled without clear title to his land.

Then, in 1784, the Mississauga Indian tribe sold a strip of land from Four Mile Creek to Burlington. Parcels of this land, acquired for one-tenth of a penny per acre, were granted by the Crown to many of Butler's Rangers....

Before the official end of hostilities, as early as 1782, Butler asked King George III for permission to release officers and soldiers with families at Fort Niagara, so that they could settle in present-day Niagara Township. 'These people were bred farmers, and I am of the opinion will soon be useful to this post, as well as to enable them to support their families comfortably, which at present is very difficult,' Butler told King George in one communique.

Some soldiers with families at the fort were released from active duty. Recruits from the Niagara frontier kept the ranks up to full complement. By 1782, there were 16 families living in what is now Niagara Township. They were Niagara's first-known European (American) settlers, and for the record, the breadwinners are listed below:

Isaac Dolson Samuel Lutz
Peter Secord Michael Showers
John Secord Hermanus House
George Fields Thomas McMicking
John Depue Adam Young
Daniel Rowe McGregor Van Every
Elijah Phelps George Stuart
Philip Bender James Secord

These families struggles along, ripping roots from the ground and trying to cultivate the virgin land. In 1782 there were 68 persons living in the township, and these hardy souls had already cleared 236 acres of land. Their lands that year produced 206 bushels of wheat, 46 bushels of oats, 926 bushels of Indian corn, and 630 bushels of potatoes. The land also supported 49 horses, 30 sheep, 42 cows and 103 hogs.

Their remarkably productive record was achieved despite miserable housing, with few agricultural implements, and without the know-how accumulated only by trial-and-error over the years...."



From "The Records of the Van Every Family":

David Van Every, oldest son of McGregory van Every,... in 1777 was called as witness as to details of the Wyoming massacre; in the same year he left the New York Militia to join the British army. In 1784 he was settled in Niagara with wife and two children, listed as 'a young settler receiving rations'. He and his brother are among the subscribers to St. Andrew's Church Building Fund. For his services as sergeant in the Butler Rangers in the Revolutionary War he was granted Lot 5 Concession 1, Flamboro West and Lot 8 Concession 8, Ancaster. The year following he was granted an additional 300 acres for his wife and children. David lived in Flamborn until 1817, when with some of his sons he moved to South Dumfries. David was a registered U.E.L.

Sarah Showers, wife of David Van Every, was a daughter of Michael Showers, U.E.L., who was born in Pennsylvania 1733, and died 1796. Michael married Miss Toch, lineal descendant of the famous Anneke Jans and granddaughter of Abraham van Toch, a Swedish settler in New Jersey. Michael had twelve children including Michael Jr. born 1771, John born 1776 and Sarah born 1761, who married David Van Every."
