Betts (Betz), Christian or Martin

Betts, Christian or Martin – Have been trying to trace two Betts brothers, possibly Betz or Bates from Germany. One may be named Christian or Martin. It has been told in our family for generations that they came from Germany and one was married to the sister of General Heintezleman, who held a command in the Continental Army during our struggle for independence. The brothers joined the army under General Heintezleman and were both killed at the battle of Brandywine. Their son lived in Lancaster Co., Pa. Possibly his father lived there.
