Note:
Researcher Pat Shirock of Emmaus, has come to the conclusion that Elizabeth Barbara may be the "Indian" in our blood line. She thinks the Indian was a member of the Wilkes-barre tribe of Indians who had something to do with the Wyoming Massacre. Pat was told by some member of Confer family the the Indian was supposed to be the daughter of a Chief.
Pat Shirock, 714 Fernwood Street, Emmaus,PA 18049 writes in 1999 the following as the result of her Genealogy research:
THE INDIAN
The "Indian" merits a section to him/herself, because it was this Indian that got me started on this whole
ancestor hunt many years ago — just because I thought my grandmother looked like an Indian.
Because her father died when she was around two years of age, she had lost touch with his family. I became curious about who he was and about his family. I sent letters out
at random to people of the Cunfer/Confer name in the Lehighton area. Imagine my surprise to get a phone call from a Mrs. George Cunfer (Dorothy) inviting me to a family reunion. I talked John (husband) into going with me and wasstartled upon walking into this group of people at how so many of them looked like Indians — reddish
skin, hawkish noses, wild eyes.
Dorothy introduced me to Lewis Cunfer, a cousin of my grandmother. When I mentioned why I was there to do some family research and how I had kidded my grandmother about looking like an Indian, he said"It's true. There was an Indian in the family and I can show you where she's buried."
I don't know what John thought when he was commandeered to drive me and Lewis up the road to St.John's Cemetery. But off we went and Lewis guided us to the two oldest
looking stones in the far comer.
They were very weathered and in German script, but you could make something out. And I went backlater to examine them carefully for myself.
The stone Lewis pointed to was that of Elizabeth Barbara Cunfer born in 1791, the wife of George.
Now, I wrote to many people in those days (back in the 1960s) and they almost all verified the existence of
an Indian in the family.
Here are some quotes from those letters:
Mamie Zehner — (granddaughter of old Jacob Cunfer — George & Elizabeth's son)
"It was not my grandmother Cunfer's side of the family that had Indian blood. It was my grandfather Cunfer's side of the tree....Grandfather Cunfer was not a full blooded
Indian. Hope you will forgive me but
all I know is that we have Indian blood."
Ella Rauch - "Mother said her mother never mentioned the bloodline to her — evidently they thought it
was something not to be spoken of. We have a picture of my uncle lrwin and it looks more like and Indian
chief than an ordinary man — and my oldest brother Bill has the high forehead and cheekbones. "
"My brother Ray has been working on the family background, especially since the "Indian" heredity cameup, and there is definite proof of that but I can't think of the tribe
anymore, guess I was relieved that it wasnot the dirty tribe that I put it out of my mind completely. Mother
thinks it was the mother of Jacob or grandmother that you spoke of. It is supposed to be in the Cunfer blood line."
Mary Cunfer — "I cannot find out much about the older people years ago. I asked Mrs. Zehner. She saidthe Indian name was Cunfer or Confer.... They said that the name was
changed to Confer. That there was a record in Washington. That the name Cunfer was an Indian name." "Mamie said the Cunfer side came from the Indian descendant. But we have
no record of it. So I guess we can't go back over a hundred years. I often did hear that the Cunfers
came from Indian descendants. ... I often heard we came from the Indian family." "They do say we came from the Indian blood. We had lots of arrowheads in the field on the farm where the Indians had been years ago."
Vema Schott— (I believe she was a granddaughter of Gideon or Stephen Cunf

This is the summary of PJ's militia experience(from Pat Shirock's research):
The following is the declaration to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832.
On October 30, 1832, Philip Jacob Shellhammer personally appeared in Court in Schuylkill County as a Revolutionary War pension claimant. He was a resident of West Penn Township,Schuylkill County, and was 73 years of age.
1. He first entered service in 1777 in West Penn Twp., Schuylkill Co. at about 18 years of
age, under Capt. Peter Rick, Lieut. Dewalt Kuhns in Col. Geiger's regiment. He marched from West Penn to Easton in Northampton County, to Easton in Northampton County, to New Brunswick, NJ and to Trenton where he stayed till he was dismissed. He was not engaged in any battle during this time of service. He served for the term of two months
and did not receive any written discharge.
2. About two years after his return from Trenton (1779), he was enlisted in Weisenberg Twp., Northampton County, by a Capt. Greenawalt who gave him 1,000 dollars in continental money. He recollects that $100 dollars of continental money was then valued as one silver dollar.
He enlisted for 7 months and served under Capt. Vanatten, Lieut. John Meyer and Ensign Scovie.
He was marched from Weisenberg Twp. to Mahoning Valley and was stationed at the house of his brother Simon Shellhammer about 45 miles from Easton under the
command of Lieut. Meyer to protect the inhabitants from Indians. After remaining there about three months he was marched with about thirty others by Lieut. Meyer, Sarg.. Kuhns and Ensign Scovie to Nescopeck Valley in
Luzerne County and that there they fought the Indians. About 15-16 men were killed, wounded or taken prisoner and they were obliged to retreat. Lieut. Meyer, Sarg.. Kuhns and Ensign Scovie were all taken prisoner by the Indians, but Lieut. Meyer made his escape two or three days afterward. Philip returned to his post at his brother Simon's house and from there he was marched under Capt. Vanatten towards the New York border on this side of the Delaware. Theywere marched to Straustown where they were verbally dismissed after serving their seven months.
3. He again entered service about 1781 or 82 as a substitute for a person whose name he cannot now recollect. He marched from West Penn Twp. under the command of Capt. Meyer in Col Geiger's regiment against the Indians and was stationed in Mahoning Valley. He was not engaged in any battle during this time of service - two months, and was verbally dismissed and returned to West Penn Twp.
4. Immediately after his return he entered the militia again as a substitute for a person whose name he cannot recollect (only that he lived in Whitehall Twp.,
Lehigh Cty.). He was marched from West Penn Twp. under Capt. Reader to Mahoning Valley. The company was
divided into small parties and stationed at different places in the Mahoning Valley. During this time of service a party of Indians burnt the house of an Rinewault in the
night which was about Vz mile from Roswalden where Capt. Reader lay. On the alarm being given, Capt. Reader called the men together and they pursued the Indians, but they escaped. He served two months and was verbally dismissed.
5. Immediately on his dismissal, without returning home, he entered the militia again, as a substitute for a person whose name he cannot recollect. He served a period of two months under Capt. Cassamer Greenmeyer in Mahoning Valley. During this time of service, the Indians killed
one man and destroyed some cattle. After two months, he was verbally dismissed and returned home to West Penn Twp.
The three persons for whom he had just served were strangers to him and each paid him about 7 dollars in money and grain. He was born in Heidelberg Twp. in 1759 and has a certificate of his birth

Back in the early 1980s I received most of my information from a Grace Williams and a Karen Osbom who were both Shellhammer researchers. Attempts to re-contact them
in 1997 brought no response. This information in on the parents of Philip Jacob.
Philip Jacob was the son of Hans George Shellhammer and his wife Anna Margaretha. Hans George was born in the Rhineland Province of the Palatinate about 1727.
His wife was also born about the same time in the Palatinate. They were Lutherans and were married about 1747. They left their homeland in the spring of 1753 and emigrated to America with three children, all of whom
survived the voyage. Abraham was about 7, Anna Margaretha about 5, and George Jr. about 3.
They came on the ship Richard and Mary out of Rotterdam last of Cowes (on the Isle of Wight in England), arriving in Philadelphia September 15, 1753. The "Pennsylvania German Pioneer's",Vol. 1, lists on pages 532, 533 and 535, the names of the foreigners imported on the Ship Richardand Mary, John Moore, Commander, from Rotterdam, last from Cowes, who qualified 17'hSeptember 1753. Included in this list is the name of Hans Jurg Schellhammer. He is also shown as Johann Georg Schellhammer and Hans Jerge Schellhammer. Boarding with
them were 108 male passengers over the age of 16. Most of the male passengers were accompanied by their wives and children. After arrival in America, the passengers were
detained on board for two days for health inspection and disembarked on the 17'h. It is remarkable the children survived the voyage, as many under the age of 7 did not. Gottlieb Mittleberger noted in his narrative that children under the age of 7 seldom survived the hardships of the long voyage.
Owing to the large influx of foreigners, esp. German and Swiss, from the year 1727 through 1775, it was deemed advisable to compel all to take the Oath of Allegiance to King George II as the lawful and rightful King of the Realm of Great Britain. Hans George took this oath on September 17, Y53. This is recorded in the PA Archives, 3'" Series, Vol. 17 on pages 391 and 392. He is
listed as Hans George Schollhammer. He is also known as Hans Jurge Schellhammer.
On file in the Court House in Easton, PA, is a list, a copy of which is owned by Lehigh County
Historical Society, of the names of those who took the Oath of Allegiance to the Province of PA. Among the residents of Northampton County, who took the oath, were George Schellhammer together with his sons Simon and George, Jr. They appeared before Mathias Probst, Esq. Of Northampton Co. on August 26, 1777. George appears on the list as #124 (father), George, #73 and Simon #74.
On October 15, 1972, the Allentown, PA Call-Chronicle printed an article noting the dedication of the village of Schellhammersville. The article observed that Hans George Schellhammer had served in the French and Indian Wars on an ammunition train at Easton, PA. But we don't know which Hans George Shellhammer this was.
The family settled in Penn Twp., Northampton County, and Hans and Margaretha are buried in Penn Township. The records of Heidelberg church have references to his family. Hans George was in Heidelberg in 1772, but not in 1781. He probably moved across the Blue Mountains between those two dates. Early records refer to Schellhammers in the area prior to 1753. But again, we don't know if all these families were related. Research done by Mr. Charles Roberts indicates that Hans George acquired 300 acres of land in the area near Penn Twp. Mr. Roberts was secretary of the Lehigh County Historical Society. His data is on file at the Lancaster Theological Seminary, in notes dated November 15, 1935. Hans George died intestate in 1797(about the age of 70) and Margaretha in 1798. Inventory records indicate she was sick for abo
