He had a brother Johann George, born 7 Sept. 1758, who died 8 Oct. 1777 at Military Hospital, Brooklyn Ferry, New York, U.S.A.

{Georg Hilpert from Altersbach, born 1756/57, was in the same companie as
Valentin Hilpert. He died in Oktober 1776. Since the Regiment reached New York
with the second Division of the troops from Hessen-Kassel on Oktober 18th,
he might have died on board of the ship. [Marcus Jae -]}
