*Note: this Joseph is probably the son of Johann Joseph (above) but it is not yet proven.
This Joseph Jr. fought in the French & Indian War in Capt. Conrad Frank's Regiment along with a "Joseph Sr." (assumed to be his father). He lost a leg in battle.
During the American Revolution he was in Col. Peter Bellinger's regiment, helping mostly by making bullets at Fort Plank, about a mile from his house .
During the Revolution the citizens of German Flatts all lived on the front lines of the war between the New York colonies and the British attacking from Canada. In addition, many of the farmers in the German Flatts area of the Mohawk River were supplying George Washington's troops with food supplies. This made them even more of a target to the British.
On August 2, 1780 the British launched a surprise attack on German Flatts. Lead by their ally, Chief Joseph Brant of the Mohawk Indians, the raiders were made up of 500-600 Mohawk Indians and a few of Butler's Rangers.
Joseph was working at the Fort when the Mohawk Indians swept in under Brant's command and attacked the nearby homes.
Joseph's home was plundered and burned. His 11 year old son and 3 year old son were slain, the older boy also being scalped. His 5 year old daughter was taken captive with other prisoners and carried away to Canada for a bounty from the British. They were eventually released and returned home.
