About Samuel Beidelman

I found it interesting that he was labelled as a shiftless man.

Apparently he bought a tannery and out of his laziness let all of the hides rots in the tanning vats.

He became very successful he claims, due to his industrious children. It is of my opinion that they must have taken after their mother.

During the latter period of the Revolutionary war he joined General Sullivan's army of over 3000 men, when that command marched from Easton, PA in August 1770, against the "Six Nations." or Iroquois Indians, to drive them from the Wyoming Valley Region, where they had perpetrated the dreadful massacre the year before.

They were very successful in battle, returning to Easton for a Thanksgiving service where General Washington congratulated the army.

Eventually he moved his family to the Chemung valley he grew fond of during the battle.
