I have a copy of a 1647 baptism in Pfaffenhofen, Württemberg. The child's father is shown as Georg Opfferkuoch, Muss quartier under General Wittenberg. Would this be Gerneal Arvid Wittenberg or some other General Wittenberg? Many thanks.
Best Wishes,

Thanks to one of my husband's cousins, I now know the word was Mussquetierer = Musketeer. I suppose a Mussquetierer = Musketeer simply meant a soldier carrying a musket.
