ChallengeAZ 2017—A Bangle Dictionary | J for John

John Bangle was born in Germany and probably came with his parents, Adam and Marie, when they emigrated to the United States in 1764. John has participated in the Revolutionary War for New York Province and Pennsylvania. He was taken prisoner and sent to the Province of Québec and later on joined the British loyalists. Sources suggested that he went back to New York. We know for sure Bangle’s land was confiscated and all moved to Terrebonne, Québec. Our mystery man: first marriage not found, elusive children, lost will, imprisoned wife, sentence of prison for murder. This investigation is endless.
