TRAVEL:
In the spring of 1738, about two years after their marriage, the Seibert-Lorentz family and relations left Germany for the American colonies.

The families lived for about 10 years in the Tulpehocken region, in Berks County, PA.  About 1748, several in their extended family group including; Johanna and Henry Lorentz, moved to the South Branch of the Potomac, now Pendleton County, WV.  Wendel’s family remained in Pennsylvania.  In 1755, Johanna’s son, Jacob and her son-in-law, Nicholas Haffner, brought adjacent properties in the Dyer Settlement. {D2}

EVENT:
The 1750s were a stormy period in the American due to the French and Indian Wars. All up and down the frontier there were Indian raids, killings and kidnappings.
On 16 May 1757, while Johanna was probably in her late 60s, an Indian attack near the Dyer
Settlement led to the killing of her husband, Henry Lorentz. {D3}

DEATH:
Johanna was tomahawked and scalped by a Shawnee Indian war party on 28 Apr 1758 immediately after the capture of  Ft. Seybert, Pendleton, WV; her body was buried in hilltop mass grave near the killing site at old Ft Seybert, Pendleton, WV.{D4}

    Hi Mr. Larry,
    Great job with the blog.
    Does the Raymond Martin book mention Seiberts who emigrated from Saarland to Hungary?
    Thanks

    • Hi Joe,
      Wish I could answer your question. Mr. Martin’s book was from the public library and returned after I did my specific genealogical line of research.
      You might put in an interlibrary loan request, if that is available where you live, and see if the librarians can borrow the book from another branch.
      Good luck and happy hunting. Larry.

    Hi Mr Larry,
    Thank you for posting this! Great job on the research too. I am also related to the Seiberts and Janes. William Janes is my 4th Great Grandfather and his son Harrison is my 3rd. What a wealth of info from a family line with distinction in American history.
    Thanks again,
    Kevin
