Re: Mary Elizabeth Shotzberger Central Pa.
Robert, I am a descendant of a Hessian soldier, Arnold Haupt.
Recently a Shotzenberger family member contacted the mailing board regarding a possible Hessian soldier.
I know you will appreciate the following.

There is a family member whose name was Christopher Shotzberger.There was also a Zachariah, a brother.I am not convinced as to which was my direct ancestor & which was the Hessian.
According to family lore, the Hessian was captured and indentured on a PA farm.After the war he accepted Washington's offer of a pardon and indentured himself to the same farmer and made enough money to bring over all of his brothers.
I also know that Christopher married and was buried in Snyder, PA.I don't think Snyder gives much of a hint as to where he was captured.
