One of three Brothers who came to N.A. as Hessian Soldiers

Notes for David KUNKEL: David Kunkel - (b.1753) was married in the old country before he was called up as a Hessian soldier and came to America with his brother Michael and Henry who settled in York Co, Pa. After the war was over, he wanted to stay in America as many troops did, and was Indentured to the Bumgardner family of Augusta County, Virginia. He had a wife and son back home, and when he earned the money to bring his family over, he had them come to America and to Virginia. He had one son Jacob Kunkel - (b.1781), who went by the spelling of KUNKLE when he grew up and married Mary Bumgardner, the daughter of Jacob Bumgardner. Jacob Kunkle named his first son after his father David Kunkel, and his 2nd son Jacob after his wives Father Jacob Bumgardner.

In the Kunkle Family Bible of Jacob Kunkle - (b. 1781), tells the story that his Father David came to America with two brothers, but the names was not know of. One was supposed to have settled in Pennsylvania. It was told that these brother was caught up in the War while in Germany, and got separated once they got to America. It mentions that David was indentured for his passage to the Bumgardner family when he first came to live with them. Stories tell that he was one of the most refined men they ever knew, and evidently belonged to good people. He was a small man, very intelligent, and rather quiet, and very practical. They lived in Middelbrook, Va. for years, and afterwards at Pond Gap. ( from http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/w/h/i/Billy-Whited/FILE/0002text.txt)
