"History of Bedford and Somerset Counties". Onpage 511, "Conrad Shaulis came into the wild and thinly peopled territory "west of the mountains" in 1773. He was a native of Germany. He took up a farm in the eastern part of Jefferson Township, and struggling heroically against countless difficulties, cleared a large tract of land in the midst of a dense forest. Early in life he married and brought his wife to his cabin home in the western wilderness. After one child had been born he joined the army of the revolutionary patriots, and for two years fought under Gen. Washington. Later he served under Gen. Nathaniel Green. His wife provided for herself and child as best she could until the end of the war, when her husband returned and gave his attention to the farm. He reared thirteen children." And on page 338, Vol. II of the same book. "Conrad and his brother Valentine were in the militia of 1798 that was formed in Brothersvalley".
