Born 1731 in Germany.  Died 18 July 1797 in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania; interred Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery, Muncy Creek Township, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania.


Emigrated from Germany to Berkshire County, Pennsylvania with his wife prior to the Revolutionary War.  In May 1783 brought their family by wagon and canoes from Harrisburg to Lycoming County, Pennsylavania, landing at Walton’s Ferry, a short distance below Muncy Creek.  Became quite wealthy; acquired about 2000 acres of land and built the 1st grist and saw mills in Lycoming County, which were destroyed during the Indian troubles of 1778 – 1779.

8   Hannah/Sarah Shoemaker:


Born 1783 at Shoemakerville, Berkshire County, Pennsylvania.  Died 17 September 1817 at Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania.  Married William Bramhall, generation 8 of the Bramhall Annex.  (By one account Hannah Shoemaker married Henry/Christian Kirk.  Is it possible the Sarah Shoemaker who married William Bramhall was the daughter of Henry Shoemaker, Jr.?  If Sarah is Hannah, she would be 40 years younger than her mother, Barbera – another reason to think a generation is missing here.)
