Biography : The William Losie of N.S. is the same William Losee of Midland Dist. Several documents establish his move. William first settled with a group of 80 Westchester Refugees under Stephen Seaman on half of a 250 acre lot; part of a group patent on the Cobequid Road (up on the mountain top north of Truro in Cumberland county N.S. This he abandoned (having only one arm he was not great at chopping down trees & clearing the land) and returned to N.Y. where he enlisted as an itinerant preacher of the Methodist Episcopal Church (something he could do with one arm & he was a skilled horseman). He later applied for and was granted 200 acres in Murray Township and a town lot in Kingston. Unfortunately he was jilted in love; he returned to the States about 1794. [submitted by William Lamb.]
