I have been brooding over your e-mail of Sep.14, when you told
me about your search for Rogge. I did find the church entry for
their daughters baptism in Quebec in 1780, when a few years back
I had the microfilm C-2897 with the baptisms of the Holy Trinity
Church, somehow I did not get the full name of the mother, only the
first names which match yours, did not get 'Fuhrmann', but I got the
witnesses of whom at least Georg Conrad Rust was also a Brunswicker.
There was also a Frederick Peter Riecher and a Peter Schnie or Schmie.
both of whom I could not positively identify, although I have an Anton
Schnee with the Brunswickers.
But the big question remains who was he? I cannot find him in my
military files. There was one Rogge (without a first name listed who
was captured at Saratoga with his whole Brunswick Corps, but
deserted on the 23.Nov.1778 near Salisbury, Connecticutt, and
there was that John Rogge you found in the Treasurer Loyalists, and
also there is mentioning of a Carl Rogge who was exchanged as
POW and came with his wife to Quebec. She bore twins on board
ship between New York and Quebec and those twins were baptised
by the Army Chaplain Braunsdorff in Quebec on 16 July 1780.
It is confusing to say the least, and perhaps on the off chance that
some of our Quebec subscribers could chip in with some tidbits,
there is always hope.
