I have a copy of a land grant application by a Jacob Byers of Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk County, Ontario in 1797. In it he states he came into the province in 1787 with a wife and child--his wife being the daughter of a Loyalist. A page in the same file reads "I do hereby certify that Rachael Byers is a Loyalist, & that one of her brothers died in his service, and the other Edward McMichael is settler at Long Point." Newark (present Niagara-on-the-Lake) 3 April 1797.

A brief sketch of Edward McMichael can be found here:
