I am looking for any lead to this man who I believe I am decended. I believe this man to be a Hessian soldier who deserted and settled in Pennsylvania. He farmed and had a son named Michael. Later the thread goes to Ohio. We spell it Barnhouse but seeing many other spellings. There is a listing of Hessians remaining in America under the name "Barnthouse, see Bornhaus, Christoph, Georg, and Jacob."
