Frederick Hoeth in PA 1700's

First, I'm not a Hoeth/Huth researcher. Just ran across this interesting story. I'm summarizing tremendously.

Frederick Hoeth's cabin was attacked by Indians. They shot him, shot his wife, scalped two children, and ran off with an undetermined number of other children. Many burned in the fire they set, so nobody knows if they took more than one.

Frederick Hoeth's daughter, Maria, was captured by Indians and forced to marry. She had at least one indian child that died young. After her Indian husband abandoned her, she went to Lancaster and on into Bewthlehem with a son (???) and later died Apr 13 1772.
