Re: Eve Savage and Justus Winchell
Justus (Part of the Brunswick branch of the Winchell name.)was impressed (kidnapped)into the Hessian army... while collecting taxes for his father, also Justus, in Germany. He was not a deserter. After the Rev.War, the new government offered the hessian soldiers the opportunity to settle in the US. They offered them a section of land and $25 if they would stay. Justus did settle in the Mohawk valley and married a "Eva" Savage.
(This is also part of the war records).
