Morris Militia Notes 2 - Hessians
Morris County, New Jersey

Morris Co. Up

The following was contributed by Kevin.

Someone contacted me about my mention of Hessians, and asked if I had more information. As if by magic, someone asked about Hessians on the Dutch Colonies list ,and the following replies appeared. Take care, Kevin

There is also an online book at

THE HESSIANS and the other GERMAN AUXILIARIES OF GREAT BRITAIN IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR by Edward J. Lowell. Last (but not least) you can try my Loyalist mailing list section of The Olive Tree Genealogy at Lorine McGinnis Schulze

Try this website. The owner is Todd Braisted, a Rev. War Re-enactor (Loyalist) who is an excellent researcher and has a wonderful collection of material (historical and genealogical) on Loyalists.
My friend Todd Braisted suggested yet another site for those who are interested in Hessians.

"You might want to bookmark this site:
It is the Johannes Schwalm Historical Association, who are THE authorities on Hessian descendents in America.  Don Londahl-Smidt is on their board of governors, and they publish an excellent quarterly."
