In Reply to: Frederick Sr Souder by Joyce Souder Roney of 390

Here is a little information that was handed down to me on the souder line that you may find informative:

Adolph Souder father to:
Fredrick Souder
Christian Souder
Jacob Souder
Christley Souder

He was a Hessian soldier fighting for the British during the American Revolution. In the 1950's Bernice Bush Turner (Mrs. Menlo Turner) was visiting Aunt Sarah Bigford and Clara. She said Adolph Souders was captured by George Washington's forces early on Dec. 26, 1776. When they crossed the Delaware River and surprised the Hessian forces at Trenton, capturing 1,000 prisoners. Frank Souder (son of Thomas Jefferson Souder; grand-son of Eli Souder) advised me in 1977 that the English records had Adolph Souders listed as having deserted. In any event, Bernice had said that these prisoners were sent to North Carolina and put to work making shoes for the Continental Army. After the war was over Adolph was given a land grant which I assume was in Greene County Tennessee. Later some of the family moved to Washington County Indiana. Frederick and Christian were born in Germany.

SOUDER / SAUTER / SAUTTERS- Family Details. Data and documentation has become the interest of many professional genealogist. Mrs. Mary Quist has been researching on behalf of Mrs. Louise Skouras, Mr. Will Fergunson, Local historian of Washington Co., Indiana. Has searched official records as has Miss Lulie Davis, Marjie Ann Martin Souder, History teacher and mother of Souder Descendants has assembled references, Family Bible records and recollections of the family members as has Ed Johnson of Scottsburg, Ind. and Legends retold by Dr. Wilmur Souder.[Sabalka.FTW]
