Hi Bob Brook, I just recently signed up for web site. I read about it in the Sons of the Am. Revolution magazine (my husband is a member). Would you mind looking up my ancestor in on the list of prisoners held at Lancaster? His last name was Shotzberger and the family is not clear which brother, Christopher or Zachariah, was the Hessian. Christopher married and was buried in Snyder, Pa. The Hessian soldier according to family lore was held as a POW on a farm in Pennsylvania.

Really appreciate your help and am really enjoying the web site. Thanks to John Merz.

In _Johannes Schwalm The Hessian_ (Johannes Schwalm Historical Assoc.,
1976), pp. 229-241, is "A Combined List of prisoners held at Lancaster
1777-1778" containing a list of 712 German and 49 British POWs with the
names of employers for about half the Germans. Alas, this list does not
include a POW named JAKOB HACHENBERGER nor an employer named Captain Jakob
Zimmerman. In fact, the list does not include a POW hamed Hachenberger or
any similar name. As for employers, Bernard Zimmerman of Hempfield is
listed as employing both Ludwig Landwehr of 2.Kompanie, Regiment von
Losßerg, and Wilhelm Steinbrecker of Leibkompanie, Regiment von Knyphausen.

In _Hessische Truppen im Amerikanischen Unabhangigkeitskrieg (HETRINA),
Index nach Familiennamen_ [Hessian roops in the American Independencewar
(HETRINA) Index by Familynames], vols II and III, I fail to find anyone
named Hachenberger. These volumes cover the three regiments which were
captured at Trenton NJ on 26 Dec 1776; i.e., Regiment von Loßberg, Regiment
von Knyphausen, and Regiment Rall. I do not own HETRINA vol I which
includes the composite Grenidier Battalions.
