Lehigh County Massacre Grave

Here on October 8, 1763, John Snyder and his wife, Anna Margaret Wotring, with their three children and Jacob Alleman's wife and child were killed by Indians. Their bodies were buried 200 yards south of this spot. John Jacob Mickley's children, Henry and Barbara killed the same day were buried half a mile to the east. This was the last Indian massacre in Lehigh County.

Nothing like finding a little piece of history.
