Jacob ZIKE (ZEUCH) was a Hessian soldier in the Rev. War,
arriving in America in 1775. He was stationed for 2 years
in NY, then, after a British raid into VA, he and a companion
defected, worked their way north, and joined the American forces.
After the war he moved to Jessamine Co., KY, married Katherine
Avey (or vice versa), where they raised their family. He died in
Jessamine Co. in 1829, Katherine in 1833. I have nothing earlier
on Jacob - parents, siblings, etc. - and nothing at all on
Katherine prior to the birth of her first child. Can anyone
provide any additional info? Many thanks.
