Thanks for your questions.

My Nicholas Barron was born in Germany about 1731 and died in Pennsylvania in 1785. The ancestry continues through his son Nicholas Jr, through his son Henry (wife: Mary Elizabeth Miller) through his son Hiram, through his son William Henry, through his daughter Melva Fern. That would make Nicholas Barron my fifth great grandfather. Any relation to the Nicholas Barron you are talking about?

HI.I forgot my info.I had to redo it.Sorry I didnt get ack to ya.I live in somerset pa.My dad was Donald Thomas.Hi mom Mabel Thomas daughter of Issabel Barron Henry.Her father was Moses Barron.It would have been hi grandmother that was captured by Morrison cove indians.Rachel Hauser.I think of Jacob in the Bible with that.He had to wait 7 marry rachel and she was captured for 7 yrs.Nicholas sr. came on the ship Neptune from germany.Same people?

yep. We are definitely grown from the same first root!

I have Nicholas Jr marrying Rachel Hauser, too. What I am trying to do is......1. Find any information about Nicholas Sr.'s wife Catharina Christina (no maiden name). Supposedly he married her in Philadelphia but I cannot confirm that. 2. Where in Germany is he from and do you know of anyone that has researched in German records for Nicholas Sr.?

On a more recent note (LOL!!) I have all sorts of relatives in Somerset and Cambria counties. My dad was born in Riverside, outside Johnstown and my first cousin Donell and her husband Ron Jacoby live in Conemaugh with their family and grandchildren. My 2nd cousin Tom Barron used to own some big greenhouse complex near Davidsville I think until it was torn down because of floor control or something. Lots of Barrons still in Somerset county, aren't there?

I try to get back to the Barron Reunion held in Somerset every couple of years if I can make it from Alaska. It is so blooming hot down there that time of August. I do like the fresh corn and tomatoes, though. Have you ever been to any of the reunions?

Anchorage, AK

I have heard of the tale of Rachel Hauser being kidnapped and taken to Detroit as an indian captive. Can you tell me what you know of the kidnapping? Who are Morrison Cove indians? Is there any historical source about this, or is it just a tale told in the family?
