I recently found a picture of my uncle's grave, located in Fetterhoff's cemetery,Dauphin, PA. It says:
Christian Hoffman 1752-1841 Revolutionary War, Pvt. Continental Soldier (with a flag marker as well.) datais engraved in the stone. A picture can be found at findagrave.com-I do not who placed it there-the grave is really new.
I would like to prove this fact of serving in the line, not just militia.
I wonder if there is a list of all Christian's serving in the Continental Army. Could it be a mistake?
If indeed he did serve regular army, it must have been shy of a year, as no pension is in exsistance. He married Susannah Deibler.
