Jeff, you were so kind to type in all that information which takes a lot of time. Unfortunately, I already had that info, but at least you confirm what I have. You've also helped other researchers by putting the info out there for all to read. It seems no one knows anything about this family in Germany. And there still is no documented proof for when John W. came to the US. My source says John W. could have come to the US when a baby, or he could have come as a young Hessian soldier. If he was a baby, did he come with siblings and who were they? So many questions... Thank you for your time and response, Jeff.
