About John Walliser

His burial record says he was born in 1765. He was a baker and a farmer. His family were tenants of Sir William Johnson. As a young man, John Walliser was a baker in Johnstown, Tryon County (now Montgomery County), New York. During the American Revolution, Sir William induced the majority of his tenants to remain loyal to the British crown. The Wallisers were no exception. John Walliser served on the British side, enlisting in the Royal Regiment of New York on 3 April 1780. He was listed on a muster roll dated April 1780-1786 in the Eastern District of Matilda, Ontario, Canada.

On 22 June 1797 John Walliser and William Bowen were granted 200 acres (Lot 27, Concession III) at Matilda, Ontario Land Book Index, Reel C-101, Vol. C). He lived in the East District at Matilda.

In an 1850 petition for land by John's son Solomon, a witness stated that John Walliser was 88 years old.
