Hello, My ancester was also marked Deserted on the muster roll However I have learned his unit was broken up during battle and he hooked up with another Company and Brit prisoners were taken and he was assigned to take them to Greenbush he later received a honerable discharge. I beleive many were marked Deserted just for the fact they were missing!!! Keep digging.
