I am aware of the John Getter family with children Bloomer, Benjamin, Clarissa and Marcus; this information came from Marie Haralson, a Family Tree Maker user. I am certain that there is a connection because I have a photo of two gentlemen labeled Marcus E. Getter and Benjamin O. Getter. On the back of the photo is says "Sons of John J. Getter, son of Stephan Getter, Son of Gen. Conrad Getter, Commander of the Hessians Troops in American War of the Revolution whoo (sic) was a resident of Hamburg, Germany. The photo was in a box of mementos from my Grandmother. Where "my" John H. Getter fits in, no one seems to know. Any ideas?
