MAHR, PHILIPP - (Philip Moore) - Philipp Mahr was a Hessian soldier from Dudenhofen, who was one of only 28 young boys taken to fight in the war. He was mustered to the Hesse-Hanau Regt. Erbprinz in May of 1774 and shipped to Canada in March of 1776. His Regiment took part in the campaign of General Burgoyne to Saratoga, New York and he was captured in Oct of 1777. They were marched to Cambridge and at the end of 1778 was marched from Boston to Charlottesville, Virginia. In early 1781 with the British army getting closer to Charlottesville he was moved to near Winchester. While there he deserted along with a buddy, Peter Stein also from Dudenhofen.

Not much is know of him until he showed up in the census of 1820 for the county of Buckingham, Virginia where he was listed as head of a household having a wife, two sons and a daughter and his occupation listed in agriculture.

He was wounded September 1777, but fought till the end of the war, when he deserted to stay in America.

MUELLER, PETER - My forbear's name was Peter Mueller who stayed in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, probably near Lancaster. The family name was changed to Miller, and I don't know when.

Years ago someone who had apparently done some research told my mother the family women were eligible to join the DAR. How this could be when Mueller was a Hessian soldier I don't know.

I'd like to know more about Peter Mueller, including his wife's name.

Thanks for any help.
