Murder of Kluck family, 1756

From C. Saure’s German Paper, March, 1756, as cited in “Frontier Forts of Pennsylvania,” pp. 154-155:

“And on March 24th [1756], the house of Peter Kluck, about fourteen miles from Reading, was set on fire by the savages, and the whole family killed – while the flames were still ascending, the Indians assaulted the house of one Lindenman, in which there were two men and a woman, all of whom ran up stairs, where the woman was shot dead through the roof. The men then ran out of the house to engage the Indians, when Lindenman was shot in the neck, the other through the jacket. Upon this Lindenman ran towards the Indians, two of whom only were seen, and shot one of them in the back, when he fled and he and his companion scalped him and brought away his gun and knife.”
