Regarding Dutch as a language and nationality of the German troops hired for the revolutionary war: I believe it to be a corruption of Deutch, as it was for the "Pennsylvania Dutch".
Their descendants called themselves "Dutch" even in the 1881 census in Canada.
Do you know if John Gavel went back to fetch his wife, or did she accompany him?
