My 5th great grandfather, Carl HALDERMANN was born abt. 1754/55 in Wolsdorf, Helmstedt County, Germany. Carl was a Brunswick/Hessian soldier in the Revolutionary War. He belonged to General Burgoyne's (British) army. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Saratoga in Oct. 1777. He finally ended up with the Convention Army in Virginia. He escaped in Virginia in 1779. Sometime between the time he escaped, 1779-1786 he changed his name to Charles HALTERMAN. This name change was a very common occurrence of the some 3000 Hessian soldiers that remained in the States and Canada that fought for the British during the War. Charles HALTERMAN married (unk. date) to possibly a Elizabeth Huffman. Charles had nine children, Henry, Adam, George, Elizabeth, Charles, Peter, Barbara (Barbary), Jacob and Andrew. Charles is listed as being a landowner in Highland County, VA as having 200 acres on Straight Creek in 1786. Charles is listed in the Pendleton County Land Patents from the Sim's Index as having 200 acres on Strait (?) Creek in 1797 and 15 acres on Strait (?) Creek in 1796. Charles HALTERMAN (spelled HOLTERMAN) is listed in the 1810 Census of Pendleton County, VA/WV as being 56 years old and living with his wife and children except Henry. Does any of this ring a bell with you???? If it does please e-mail me at
