Dear Judith, I believe you have been looking at the
ESSEX Message Boards many times and have left
your own Messages. I have written about most of the
names mentioned in connection with Leonard Scratch,
the Hessian soldier Leonhard KRATZ, and you will find
those messages just by typing in my name at the Essex
board, as I did with typing yours in the query space of
this Board. A beautiful system which makes it so easy
to research. If you are not sure what happened at the
Ruddlesfort in Kentucky, there is a Ruddlesfort mailing list
with plenty of excellent information in it. Please try to
find it. It is truly amazing what you can find with Rootsweb.
Cheers, John Merz.
