Extract of letter written by Ben H. Zellner to Margaret Zellner ... Nashville, Tenn

The grand father of my ... and cousin Henry Zellner, and your great grand father was Geo. Peter Zellner, was not of the Holland or low dutch, he was of the German or high dutch, and came from Hanover Germany. He was one of the soldiers hired by England to fight in a cause in which they had no interest what ever. When the army was dispersed by Gen. Washington near Long Island in vicinity of New York our grand father drifted down into N.C. went to making boots, shoes, saddles, etc. Then to making and ... tar kilns in Bertie County at Winsdor County seat. Married a Miss Capeheart, and at her death married his cousin who was our grand mother Mary Capeheart, both of them were very religiously inclined. When my father Andrew Zellner was 6 months old they moved to Lincoln County Georgia. My grand mother Mary Capeheart died in 1848 aged 84 years.

*********************
It seems that it has been established without a doubt
that Georg Peter Zoellner was the soldier with the
Ansbach Regiment, 2. Compny, who was captured in
or near Yorktown, VA., in Oct. 1781, and later in May 1783,
took off and disappeared from the Muster Rolls. I know I
have been contacted by some of his descendants in the
past and gave advice as how to proceed to find more
information about him in Germany. In some family tree
I found a note that he was supposed to be born in Hanover,
(Hannover) but that seems highly unlikely to be true.
One Ansbach-Bayreuth researcher has suggested that
he actually was born in Markt Erlbach, about 25 km west
of Nuernberg, or a few km north of Ansbach.
Hope this will help with your research.
Good hunting,
John Merz,
researcher of Hessian Soldiers of the American Revolution.
