Larry, if you go under the web site of Storm Kauffman, "Bumgardner,Baumgardner",web site it will explain Leonard Bumgardner,the Hessian deserter. Godfrey was originally Gottfried Bumgardner?, he was on one of the passenger ship lists, also. He was originally listed in Augusta Co., Va. census and later moved to Rockingham Co. Va. He is listed in the Rockingham Co., Va., census of 1784. Someone may be a direct descendant who can give you additinal information on his line. Due to inclement weather, I think my e-mail system is sometimes inoperable. "Spy Letters of the American Revolution" is another good web site to read.
