In return for this data, I would really appreciate any information on the parents of Ruth Evans, wife of George, above.
I have some information on the second generations of these families, if you wish to send a query to me via email.
Hope this helps those seeking information for this wonderous Hessian soldier, who came and settled here and fought for the freedom of America.
