Need Revolutionary War help


Hello, My name is Renee, and I have a question concerning the Revolutionary War if anyone can answer it or lead me in the right direction. I am trying to find information on Burgoyne's troops who were either captured or surrendered at Saratogain 1777. A family history has our ancestor fighting with / in Burgoyne's troops and his brother who was already in America fighting for the US. It is said that the American brother was part of a Reg. that captured the Reg. of the "brit" side brother. Both men were born in Ireland. After this supposed capture the brother who was with Burgoyne was not shipped back, and ended up settled in Pennsylvania as did other brothers and relatives. I have been trying to find a way to verify these things. I am told there probably are not rosters of Burgoyne's troops. Also the US census available starts in 1790. So between 1777 and 1790 I am trying to account for their whereabouts. Anyone have any ideas?

Welcome to the forum Nae. Good luck with your venture in discovering your geneology. I noticed you got some help in the other thread you posted about this.

Hope to see you around!
