My ancestors obituary mentions "der schwadischen Schalze". See below. Does anyone know what that was?
The obituary is from the September 29th 1847 edition of the German language newspaper “The Bauren Freund" published at Pennsburg:
"Died: On Wednesday the fifteenth day of September, in the morning at four o’clock Mr Jacob Klein, of Milford, Bucks County, at the age of 93 years and six months. He was the oldest inhabitant of this neighborhood, loved and respected by all who knew the kindly old gentleman. In the years 1776 and 1777, he served his country in the Revolutionary War and was in the battles of those times including Princeton, Germantown and “der schwadischen Schalze” in Chester County. Deceased was survived by twelve adult children, 8 sons and 4 daughters, 93 grandchildren and 103 great grandchildren, a total of 208 descendants. On the following Saturday his remains were interred in the Lutheran Cemetary of the Six Cornered Church, in the presence of a large assembly of persons, at which Rev. F Waage, preached the funeral sermon on the text of Genesis, Chapter 32 verse 10."
