Battle of Brandywine

Militia of MD and VA called to assist had not arrived yet



Sullivan, who commanded the American right, marched with three divisions to intercept Cornwallis

the British loss in killed and wounded was given about 600. That of the Americans was greater: but as no returns were ever made, it was never accurately ascertained.

Congress and the Board of War had adopted the policy of ordering an inquiry into the condut of every officer who failed of success.
This battle was right in the backyard of the Marshall family.

2. Henry Yost b. 1749

3. Tobias Yost b. c. 1755

4. Susannah Yost b. c. 1759

5. Philip Yost b. c. 1762

Hans Casper Yost was born Hans Casper (or Gasper) Jost in 1712 in Emmen Valley, Switzerland, the son of Christian and Barbara Jost. He immigrated to the American colony of Pennsylvania, as did his three brothers and many other Palatines seeking to escape religious persecution. Upon arrival in Philadelphia, the name Jost was changed to Yost as a result of the English official’s not understanding the German pronunciation of Jost and the apparent illiteracy of Hans and many of the other immigrants. He is listed as Gasper Joust, age 21, on a list of Palatine passengers who arrived in Philadelphia August 17, 1733 on the ship Samuel. Clearance qualified as Hans Casper Joost, August 1733 (see Appendix __). He was bound out to William Moerschel (Marshall) of Lancaster, Pennsylvania for two years after which he married William's daughter, Eleanor. He eventually settled in Lancasterboro, Pennsylvania. See Casper Yost History.

William Moerschel (Marshall) was the son of Toby Moerschel (Marshall) who immigrated from Holland prior to 1700. William Marshall had a daughter, Eleanor, who married Casper Yost shortly after his freedom from his redemption.
