from the 1886 book "The History of the Susquehanna & Juniata Valleys" - pages 1375-1378 (Union County section)
This is about Johan Nickel and Johann Christian Gast who were "born in the village of Oderwald, Germany, in what was called the Pfalz.They shipped at Rotterdam, in the ship "Neptune" on the 7th day of October, 1755 and were landed at Philadelphia"
"One year prior (1754) to the sailing for this country of the 2 brothers, Johan Nickel and Johann Christian, their sister, who was the wife of John Henry Shaffer, came to this country and settled across the Blue Mountains, from Reading, in Berks County.The day before the 2 brothers landed at Philadelphia, Mr. Shaffer was notified that the Indians were approaching his home.......Mrs. Shaffer was soon captured.She was taken to Canada and remained a prisoner for 2 years (until 1757 ??), when she was returned to her friends.She afterwards married a Mr. GARMAN, but all trace of her descendants have been lost."
Does anyone know who she was or who the GARMAN was that she married?
