      His death is recorded as April 1779 and as April 1780 but it does not say if he died in Germany or in the United States (unknown which date is correct). It is assumed that he died in the United States as that is where his unit was.

  • Notes 
    • (Research):Christoph, Christian were, most likely, brothers and Konrad Glaentzer was, most likely, their father. They were in the same unit at the same time and they were from the same hometown. Christoph and Christian were drummers and Konrad was the Provost Marshall.

      One of Konrad's military records gives his birthplace as Freienhagen and the rest of his records show Mengeringhausen. It is likely he was born in Freienhagen and later migrated to Mengeringhausen where Christoph and Christian were born. This is a distance of about 117 km (72 miles) in the same district.
