I am looking for info on John Michael Garner (the original one). I need to confirm if he did come over from germany, and if so was his name americanized? also lookinf for any info on his service Record. according to his gravestone he fought in the Revolutionary War. would like to know if there is a company or regiment name and battles that he may have fought in. I know that records that old are hard to come by but if you have any it would be great to have the info from them. also any family info that you have.

Thank you,

I found a record for Johann Wolfgang Gaertner who was born in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany in 1700. His wife was Anna Maria Guthman. Their children were:

Johann Jacob Gaertner born in 1722 and

Johann Michael Gaertner born in 1728. He enlisted as a private in a company that was recruiting near Funkstown, MD in the latter part of the Revolutionary war and served under Captain Henry Hardman.
