We have no record  of Henrys immigration,  but he may have come from Germany or
Switzerland.  He did speak German and became a teacher.  He also may  have served in the
Revolutionary War, possible in Va.  It is also said he came to America with his axe and on the
handle was his initials "H.B.  I have found a Henry Boss In the Index to Revolutionary War
Service Records, pg.260 reads: served as a Private in the 3rd. N Y Regt.

I found Phillip in the Wilkes County Marriage Book Vol.2 1806-1834 as having married
September 8, 1820.  If this is true he would have been about 15 when he married.  My marriage
date came from Vivian Walls book.
