Hi Jim, I will follow up on your suggestions=thank you.
If you do the Hessian session it is very interesting with the capture of hundreds of Hessian soldiers =the capture of war of Trenton=-these prisoners were marched south to Va and Pa. Many of the prisoners were "farmed out" to various merchants, iron masters, and farmers. 900 men were captured during the war at Trentonn=the 23 officers were marched to Va and 886 soldiers were sent to Lancaster. Not all of the prisoners were farmed out tho.
There is a good internet site AMREV-HESSIANS-L (rootsweb) that is very informative re Hessians soldiers. Many of the Hessian soldiers deserted and returned to area where they had been farmed out.
If anyone lives in or near Cols, Oh the Palatine Society in cols closed and gave over 5,000 books, articles, etc to the Cols Public lib. The lib has them now catalogued and on the shelves=a treasure of information.
I have been reading about Hessian soldiers for months now and will offer to you any information that I have gathered.
Mr. Butts was my second marriage and it was very short due him getting cancer. He never talked about his genealogy just his immediate family that lived here in Ohio.
Thanks for answering. My question is: Do you know where I can find tax records for Dauphin/Lebanon county ,Pa for years 1788-1790? The years below of tax list I found in a book by Luther Kalker=History of Dauphin co.
I have a possible Hessian soldier who was "farmed out" in Dauphin co in 1777-he deserted then returned to that area. Have found tax records for him 1783, in 1785 he signed a petition re county seat, 1785, 1786,1787 he was on tax lists as "inmate" in Lebanon twp area. Then I lost him. First I thought he was in jail when listed as inmate then after reading found he was a "renter".
Will in future you be doing any classes on Hessians soldiers? His name was Christoph Ackman/Ackerman
here it is

Sorry to be so slow in answering. As far as I know, Robert Ferguson's father was John but he was married to Margery Gillan who was born in Ireland. This John Ferguson's father was also a John who was married to Jean Rankin. Not sure where they were born, but I do have a marriage date and place in Ireland. As far as I know these Fergusons were not in eastern PA or if they were it was not for very long. Still have a number of empty bits of info to find!!
Jim a Hematoma is what I had on my chin as infant and radiation was used to remove or I would have bled to death. MOM kept my hands in socks until I was about 3 years old most of the time. I was 6 Mos when Denver Children's hospital worked on me. Blessings and hope he heals quickly.

My Bartels line came from Martfeld, Germany, a small town between Hannover & Bremen. My great-grandfather came to the US in 1885, at the age of 14, and went to Clarinda, Page County, Iowa where he stayed the rest of his life. I had an historian do some research in the Martfeld Lutheran Church books a few years ago, and he found info on 6 additional generations of my ancestors - but he didn't look into the siblings of my direct line (it probably would have cost too much anyway). I wish I had that info now, because I have not been able to tie into anyone else's research or help anyone tie into my research as a result. I don't think any of our Bartels line ended up in Pennsylvania, but again, I can't be sure of it. Thanks for the note - Kathy in TX.
Most of the Carr family settled in Wheeling, West Virginia -- but that is close to Pa and I don't know enough about the extended family of the Carr's. My husband's dad was the first to be born in US -- Bruceton, Pa.
PA family is on my husband's mom's side -- Shriner/Russin, Lambert/Hands
About the Darlings;
No, my Darlings are only the second generation of Darlings. My husband's grandfather was born Howard Herman Davidovitch, 5 May 1885 in Wisconsin, he married his first wife with that name, and his first son, was also born with that name. At some point he became involved with Vaudeville and changed Davidovitch to Darling. It was as Howard Herman Darling that he married his second wife Ruth Theresa Kahn, and they had a son Jay Allen, who is my husband's father. So we have no Darlings in Vermont.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you, have been having some major computer malfunctions lately. About the Burns side of my family, To be honest with you I don't really know. My Burns roots are still a messy tangle that I am trying to untangle. My father is William Montgomery Burns, the youngest and only surviving child of Nola Sirena (Cantwell) and Jerome Kirby (J.K.) Burns. They were married on 4 Apr 1921 in Hobart, Ok. J.K. left the family in or around 1933-1934, either just before my dad was born (29 Nov 1933) or shortly after. My grandparents subsequently divorced. My dad didn't meet his father until he was in the Marine Corp. around 1951 or 1952, and saw him only the one time. The breaking up of the family left bitter feelings, so when J.K. died on 30 Apr 1966 my father, who had only met him the one time, and my Uncle Gene's wife Lulu, who had never met him, were the only ones who were willing to go and bury him, and they did so in Fresno, where he died. What I do know is that Jerome Kirby Burns was born on 10 Feb 1898, in Paris, Lamar County, Texas. His father was Henry B. Burns, his mother's maiden name may have been Williams, and it is possible that she may have come from Louisianna. He had one brother that I have located so far who's name was Will, or maybe William, and that is pretty much all that I know at this point. I don't know if that is at all helpful to you, if and when I find out more I would be happy to share it with you.
