I have the history behind Jacob & Barbara Shroyer. Yes, they were Indian, Shawnee to be exact. Barabara's father was the Chief of the Shawnee tribe along the Susquehanna. His name was Shawnee John. He adopted Jacob. So, Jacob and Barbara were not blood related, however, they were adopted brother and sister. Their daughter, Christina "Princess White Star" Schroyer married William Lutz, my descendent.
If you would like more info, I would be glad to give you more. I actually live near the land that Shawnee John was given for his tribe by William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. Shawnee John is buried near here. He is well known and well respected in the area. He actually left the Indian life when his tribe escaped to Ohio during the great Runaway. He chose to stay with his non-Indian family. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
