1.JOHANN HEINRICH CLAUSER

 

    Johann Heinrich Clauser (Henry Clowser), a son of Hans Jakob and

Anna Barbara Clauser, was born Dec 12, 1721 in Ottersheim, Germany and

died in an Indian attack June 1, 1764 in Clowser Gap, Frederick County

VA.

     Alison D. Martin's "Ancestors of Andrew Jackson Clowser" describes

circumstances of the Indian Attack as follows:

    "The Major White Fort was on the West Side of Hogue Creek about

Seven miles from Winchester. This place was known for more than a

century to be the White Homestead. Dr. White, son in law of William

Hogue, had settled there as one of the first settlers. In 1763 Major

Robert White son of the doctor, lived there and for the safety of the

many families who had settled along the big North mountain, he had

erected a small fort and stockade around his residence. At the July term

of that year, the Major appeared in person before the Justices. He was

then a justice himself and startled his brethren by announcing that

Indians had appeared in his neighborhood the day previous but

disappeared without molesting anyone, and that he had also been informed

that a large band was marauding the settlements on Great Ca-Capon. The

court was moved to convene and take steps to protect the settlements. No

action was taken and the Major returned to take charge of the situation

himself. He warned families and went along the mountain for fully six

miles as far as Owen Thomas' home and advised all to come to his fort as

this raid involved families so near to Winchester, it is well to give

the narrative as related by Maj. John White, a son of the owner of the

Fort property. Some little confusion as to the date appears. One

statement gives July 1763 and another gives June 1764. This may have

occurred by two raids having been made, for we have evidence that

Indians raided the settlement twice. Some of the families took no heed

to the warning. Owen 'Thomas being one saying he could not leave his

harvest and then rode to his neighbor Jacob Keddey, who had several

sons, to propose that they arm themselves and work together at their

harvest. He was shot dead on this trip. This was certainly the next day

after Major White had visited the Justices. In June 1764, Major White

went again to warn the people that they had better come to the fort,

that he was reliably informed that a large band was on the warpath. Now

the narrative becomes intensely interesting to many people who live in

Frederick County today, and especially in that section. 'Ibis warning

was heeded but the families moved slowly. Mrs. Thomas, the widow, Mrs

Jones and a man named Clowser started with their families but stopped at

the house of a man named Lloyd, two miles from the Fort and spent the

night. The next morning at an early hour they resumed their journey and

before they were out of the sight of the house, the Indians attacked

them and killed, wounded or took away as prisoners, twenty three

persons. A young son of Owen Thomas who had been killed in the previous

raid ran back into the house and hid, escaping detection, although the

Indians brought his mother and sister back into the house and bound and

kept them their while they fried bacon and ate breakfast. They then set

fire to the house and moved off. The boy managed to escape from the fire

and rambled about for two days before he found someone to tell his

direful story. The families had fled to the fort, Lloyd and several of

his children, David Jones and his wife, two old people, some of the

Thomas family, Henry Clowser and two of his sons were killed. Mrs

Clowser and four of her daughters were taken off as captives. The

youngest child, about two years old, was horribly butchered while

crossing the North Mountain, the band heading for the south branch.

They halted one night by Furmans Fort, the men of the fort fired upon

them. The next morning they moved away and Mrs.Thomas escaped and lived

for many years to tell thrilling stories. The wounded who were left near

Major Whites were gathered up after the departure of the Indians and

were carried to the Fort where they were cared for. Out of the seven

found, only one survived and that was Hester Lloyd who had two scalps

taken from her. A Dr. McDonald attended her, trepanned her head and she

recovered living, many years. Mrs. Thomas'daughter and Mrs Clowser and

her three daughters were taken to the Indian town and after an absence

of about six months, were released from captivity and all returned home

safely. There is something in Kercheval's narrative about the three Miss

Clowsers, who were prisoners at the same time. They were aged

respectively at ages 10, 7 and 5 years. After their return, they grew up

in their old neighborhood, and were married and raised families of

children. They were all three widows when Kercheval knew them and lived

not more than five or six miles apart. Two of them were Mrs. Shutlz and

Mrs. Snapp who lived one and a half miles from his residence and a

third, Mrs. Frye lived no more than six miles. Such history must be

accepted as totally reliable. Descendants of all these families live in

Frederick County at the time of this writing."

     Johann Heinrich (Henry) appears on the passenger list of the Ship

"Osgood" that landed in Philadelphia on September 29 1750. William

Wilkie was captain and the ship sailed from Rotterdam, Holland to Cowes,

England and then to Philadelphia with 480 passengers total.

    Johann married Anna Maria March 20, 1753 in PA. Anna Maria died in

May 1772 in Frederick County VA.

    Johann Heinrich Clauser and his wife are buried underneath what is

now a golf course that is managed by Shawnee Land. The headstones once

stood there however they were destroyed and removed by the Developers.

Merle Moore, a researcher of the Clowser line states that from his

personal knowledge, the graves are located under what is now the

Clubhouse at this golf course.

7.HENRY CLOWSER    1.JOHANN HEINRICH CLAUSER

 

    Henry Clowser, a son of Johann Heinrich and Anna Maria Clowser, was

born about 1760 in Clowser Gap, Frederick County VA and died there in

1835.

    Henry was the lone male survivor of the Indian Massacre of his

father Henry Clowser and two older brothers among others as they were

leaving a neighbors home after an overnight stay enroute to Whites Fort,

about two miles to the north east, which was one mile west of the

present Hayfield, VA.

    Henry kept himself hid as best as a four year old could while the

Indians departed with his mother and four sisters and brothers and the

others. He was an orphan but later inherited his fathers lands and

properties according to available records.

    Henry married Sarah Frye January 12, 1790 in Frederick County VA

District 16. Sarah, a daughter of Sgt. Benjamin and Catherine (Speers)

Frye, was born about 1763 in VA or KY and died about 1860 in Clowser

Gap, Frederick County. Marriage of Henry Clowser to Sarah Frye was

performed by Christian Streit.

    Proof of Sarah Fryes parentage comes in the form of a will written

by her father and dated January 1813. This will is located in Shelby

County Kentucky Will Book 3 page 46. The part of the will that pertains

to Sarah Frye Clowser reads as follows. "I also bequeath to my

daughter Sarah Clousure (note mispelling) one hundred and forty eight

and a half acres of land already laid off, adjoining Isaac Fry and

Priestly Dogseth, land upon the north side of Japath Creek"
