  • Notes 
    • - Dr. Johann George Stubinger was born Aug. 24, 1759, at Ober-Floersheim, Germany, the son of Heinrich Stubinger and Louise Dalberg. He was raised there and followed in his father's footsteps as a surgeon. This area of Germany is in the Rhenish Hesse wine region, about 30 miles southwest of Frankfurt, and about 40 miles from the French border.
      In 1779, at only 19 years old, the young doctor volunteered for military duty in support of the British in the American Revolutionary War, though he never saw action. He joined a company of the Hessen-Hanau Chasseur Corps commanded by Lt. Col. Carl Adolf Van Creutzburg. This unit was known as the Chasseurs, also commonly called the Jaegers. It was an independent battalion offered to the Brisith Crown as part of the German Allied contingent fighting against the Americans. The Brisith Army engaged in treaties with a number of German principalities which provided contingents of Hessian troops for service in North America in return for cash.
      Four units of this corp, all conscripts, arrived in Canada in the summer of 1777 and became part of General Burgoyne's army. However, Dr. Stubinger was part of a fifth unit, not organized until 1779 and composed entirely of volunteers, most of whom were experienced hunters and outdoorsmen who adopted easily to the kind of life in Canada's wilderness - many of them, after the war, remained in Quebec and joined the voyagers of the Hudson Bay and North-West fur traders.
      This fifth unit, under command of Captain Hugget, arrive in Quebec at the end of August, 1779. On Sept. 17, it received orders to march from Quebec City to Sorel, a point on the St. Lawwrence River north of Montreal. The entire Corps spent the winter of 1779-1780 at La Prairie, on the St. Lawrence opposite southeast Montreal. The next winter was spent at Chateauguay to the southwest of Montreal, and after the Treaty of Paris ended the war in 1783, the unit was repatriated, though about half of the entire corps chose to remain in Canada.
      Dr. Stubinger practiced medicine in the Montreal area and in June of 1786, at age 27, married Marie Anne Quintalle. Tragically, only a month later, she died, and the following year on Jan. 29, 1787, he married into the prominent Boucher family (pronounced BooShay) by wedding Dame Marie Anne Charlotte Boucher, then 21. The Bouchers were among the earliest settlers of Canada and founded Boucherville, Quebec. The progenitor of the family, Pierre Boucher, was governor of the Trois-Rivieres (Three Rivers) colony which he saved form invasion by the Iroquois, and was made a noble by Louis XIV.
      Dr. Stubinger and his wife had 11 children, all born at Boucherville - seven died in infancy. In the War of 1812, he was listed as an assistant surgeon in the militia. In 1816, he was living in Hinchinbrook, Quebec, just four miles north of the New York State border and to the northeast of Malone, NY. He died Jan. 8, 1822 at Boucherville.
      Dr. Stubinger's first child, daughter Josepthe Louise Luce Stubinger, was born May 7, 1790 at Boucherville and on Sept. 4, 1810, married Jean Samuel Newcomb, also a physician who studied under his father-in-law. While his father-in-law was aligned with the British during the Revolutionary War, Samuel Newcomb's family - also including many physicians - fought for America. Indeed, Dr. Newcomb took part in the rebellion against Brisith rule in Canada in 1837 known as the Patriot War, was tried and convicted as a traitor to the Crown, and sentenced to imprisonment in Australia, from which he survived and returned to Canada.

      Hanau is a town in the Main-Kinzig-Kreis, in Hesse, Germany. It is located 25 km east of Frankfurt am Main (The Book The Hessians of Quebec GERMAN AUXILIARY TROOPS IN CANADA 1776-1783. ) From the Principality of Hessen-Hanau: Hessen-Hanau Chasseur Corps, commanded by Lt. Col. Carl Adolf v. Creutzburg. Chasseurs, also commonly called Jaegers/Yaegers, even ‘green Jaegers, four companies left Hanau before the 1 April 1777 and passed inspection at Nijmwegen, Holland on the 12 April. After a short layover in Newfoundland in mid June, the last ship of the fleet docked in Quebec on the 12 July 1777. One company which had arrived earlier took part in the expedition to Fort Stanwix, and took part in the battle of Oriskany, when they were forced to return having lost five men and much of their equipment. The Hanau Chasseur Corps remained as garrison troops in Canada, Their strength increased by a new fifth company under Captain Hugget, which arrived in Quebec at the end of August 1779. Most of these men had signed up voluntarily for duty in America, and therefore are the only ones which could be considered to be mercenary soldiers. Among them many experienced hunters and outdoors men, who adopted easy to the kind of life in Canada’s wilderness. Many of them after their release in Quebec joined the voyagers of the Hudson Bay and North-West fur traders. Much more research is needed to find these men.
