A search on Hathitrust.org located a reference to Hector in a list of Irish property owners in New York City. Hector purchased the property in 1792 from Thomas Roche.
What is clear is that the newspaper reference to the court case ties Calbraith to New York and Philadelphia.
As information is gathered, it's imperative that the researcher keep adding to the chronology that has been created for the person of interest and that the researcher determines if names of associates have been encountered before.
These references indicate there may be more information on Hector in New York court and land records.
The real question for me is: "Do I need these records?"
This needs to be answered in light of my goal--which needs to be clearly defined. Hector is probably related to the wife of my wife's ancestor's brother. The brother is known to have been born in England and the wife is believed to have been born in Ireland (as was Hector). The couple married in New Jersey. At this point, my research on Hector may take a back seat to other work.
