of course I have time to help old friends -
This (Will?) Col, or Kaull, who later is mentinoed as a
Michel Coll, is none other then the Brunswick soldier
Michael Kohle from Sonneborn. You can check yourself in
Clifford Neal Smith's Monograph 'Brunswick Deserters' and also
in Virginia DeMarce's 'German Military Men in Canada" page 159,
where he is listed with details under the name of KOUEL/KOULL,
Michael, with another note on page 157 under KOHLE.
Do not mistake him for another Kohle/Coll, first name Nikolaus,
that man was a Hanau Chasseur.
Just to tell you - this day started off with a nice laugh (Joesph-Keith)
and so far the success rate is almost perfect.
Thanks for helping and contributing,
