Mrs. Summers:

Thanks for your kind help with my query. This morning a got the following mail which explains the mistery:

"--- escribió: > Dear Pastor Deuer,
> The original muster roll of the German
> Fusiliers lists as one of the
> members, my ancestor Peter Dener (Diener). The
> transcriber made an error and
> listed him as Peter Deuer. I have proven Peter
> Dener/Denner/Diener/Dinner as

> between 1764 and 1765 with
> his family. He claimed Bounty Land in 1765 in
> Boonesborough, Belfast
> Township, and in 1768 claimed Bounty Land in Berkley
> County. I hopes this

> Peter Dener, Jacob Sass,
> Henry Patrick, Casimer Patrick and Michael
> Cobia....all of whom were in
> America before 1770. I believe Jacob Sass had

> Schenstad, Germany as he trained these Fusiliers,

Thanks for your kindness and best regards.
