Joseph Kilborn - Nova Scotia ca 1780-1787

Surnames: Kilborn, Whiting Lathrop
I'm hoping someone on the list might be able to help. I am trying to find Joseph Kilborn, b March 1758 CT, married to Lucy Whiting 1780, New London Co CT. I've read several accounts that indicate that Joseph got into trouble during the Rev War by trading with the British and was forced to go to Nova Scotia.

Beyond this bit, I have no information about Joseph. I believe that his wife, Lucy Whiting, remarried in 1787 to James Lathrop. I've also seen it mentioned that Joseph and Lucy had 2 daughters - Nancy and Polly. It is this daughter Nancy who was my 3xggrandmother (married to Martin Eggleston). I haven't been able to find specifially who her parents/siblings were. My thinking is that either Joseph had died by 1787 or he had been divorced from Lucy. Were divorces even done in that time period?

If anyone is familiar with any Kilborns that were in NS during the 1780's or has any additional info that might help, I'd really appreciate the assistance!
