"The Christian Zug house built before 1760 was about 10 miles from Valley Forge. Family tradition tells that during the Revolutionary War American soldiers tore away fences, etc....once when old mother Zug was talking fresh loaves from the oven, some soldiers snatched away all but 1 loaf, which she had hidden under her apron. She ran into the house saying, "this one is for me." The soldiers didn't argue, they let her have it.

The History of East Whiteland Township

"The first European settlers, who were Welsh, arrived in Whiteland Township about 1621. Founded in 1704, Whiteland Township was made up of what is today known as East and West Whiteland townships. The name Whiteland originates from Whiteland Gardens, Flintshire, Wales. Whiteland Township was divided into two townships in 1732. East Whiteland covers more than seven thousand acres.

Native Americans called the area “The Dark Valley” because of the tree and undergrowth that once blanketed the land. During the American Revolution, Gen. George Washington and many of his troops camped at Malin Hall, Malin Road, in preparation for a Sept. 16, 1777 encounter with British Gen. William Howe. The Continental Army also camped near White Horse Inn on Swedesford Road. Because of inclement weather, however, “The Battle of the Clouds” was never fought. "

"By 1785 Christian had married his third wife Anna, "widow and relict of John Reichnbach, late of the Township of Caernarvon in the County of Berks"...
Christian's will and estate papers have provided information on his wives, children, and step children. These Chester County documents have served to clarify the discrepancies among the early published genealogies of this family where wives Dorothea and Anna and the families of sons Yost and Jacob have been confused."
