WOW! THANKS! Sounds like a possibility
that the VA Spindlers could have been a
part of Germannia in Spotsylvania. The
English put the Germans on the farthest
outposts of the frontier as a buffer...some
went on to Germany Valley in Augusta/Rockingham/VA which became Pendleton
WV, then moved on to Harrison Co.WV.
Serving under Gist in Rev.War would indicate
this area of the Northern Neck VA and W.MD.

The first wave of Germans to Spotsylvania VA
came in 1710 - many were held up in London
trying to get passage, living in the equivalent of a tent city for lengths of time. Children were born in England, and
so the nationality may seem contradictory.
