Thanks for your message. It cannot be Col. Frederick Hambright's son John, because he was not born until 1762. The John I am looking for was a grown man in 1752. Colonel Frederick Hambright had a son Frederick Jr., who had a son John b. 1788 (my ancestor), but it can't be him either! I am thinking our Pennsylvania Indian fighter in 1752 might be Colonel Frederick Hambright's brother John (Johann). The list I have of Col. Frederick and his brothers and sisters shows Johann listed first, so he could have been the eldest. If so,he would have been in his late twenties or early thirties in 1752, and since he with his father and siblings settled in Pennsylvania in 1738, it make sense that he would be fighting Indians there in 1752. By that time Col. Frederick (age 25) had already moved south to North Carolina.
Are you descended from one of Col. Frederick's sons? Which one?
Thanks again for your interest and help.
