AR Stells

Our branch of the Stell family lives/lived in central and southwestern Ar. Dr. Jack Stell, chief of staff at St. Josephs in Hot Springs Ar had one daughter, Ann. She died in Florida several years ago. She told me that our branch of the Stell`s came from Hessia (a province that became a part of unified Germany) to fight as mercenaries in the revolutionary war. When the war was over, Hessia would not repatriate them because they were so lawless! I never saw any documentation of this. Do any of you have information?
