Did you have any success? One source quotes my gr-gr-gr-grandfather "Robert Ervin came from County Aantrim, Ireland. His first wife, whose maiden name was Ann Rath, died leaving him with 2 sons (Charles was my gr-gr-GF) and 2 daughters. Robert's second wife was Mary Henderson, a bride, when they sailed (from Belfast?) with the children on a vessel built, owned and commanded by Captain Phillip Drew, an American. This was in the summer of 1812". Our family lore includes a story of the ship being confiscated by the British and the family being delivered to Halifax (were they heading for the US?)
