It was so exiting Sunday night to see how our Roll- Rohl line came to America.It was on tv on a genealogy show. It seems that the first Rohl was a Hessien soldier who was among hundreds who were "rented" from Germany by the British to help fight against our freedom. Quite a few of these soldiers decided to switch over to our side when they saw what freedom is like. So--- This soldier is on the Revolutionary War Rosters as being a Patriot. Makes me proud. I already had several Heros' on this list, but liked adding this one.
