I am researching the Keith/Saltsman Saulsman families.
In a biography, reference was made to Susan Young's grandfather may have died in the Wyoming Massacre. See below:
Susan Keith Young's grandfather would be Anthony Saltsman or Saulsman or, in several mentions, the name is spelled Salzmann. Anthony was the father of Mary Saltsman who married Lewis Keith.
Can this be verified by anyone?

Young Family -- Mrs. Susan Young, widow of John Young (and daughter of Lewis and Mary Keith, whose maiden name was Saultzman, daughter of Anthony Saultzman), was born on the banks of the Susquehanna River. Her father, Anthony Saulsman/Salzmann/Saltsman was killed by Indians in Lycoming Co., Pennsylvania.* (Some have suggested it could be the Wyoming Massacre). Mr. & Mrs. Young were married August 8th., 1819 in Bedford Co., Pa., on the banks of the Juniata River, and emigrated to Ohio in November, 1822, and settled on Honey Creek, two miles south of Bellville, where the old lady still lives. Mr. Young having died November 23d., 1867, aged 71 years. They had six children -- three boys and three girls. Two sons and one daughter are living. They came from Hopewell Twp., Huntington Co., Pa. Mrs. Young was born August 25th., 1797. Mr. & Mrs. Young were raised Lutherans, but never joined the church. Mr. Young was a Whig, then a Republican. When they moved they came through Ashland (then Uniontown), and there was but one frame house in it, and it was not finished. There were, however, several cabins and two still houses. They stayed all night at Markley's below town, went to Mansfield the next day, and the landlady died that night of fever. Mr. Young, being exposed to it, took it, and laid nine weeks in his new cabin home. There were but few houses in Mansfield, and but three in Bellville -- Mr. Bell's, Enoch Ogle's and, perhaps, Jackson's. She says that when they came out that Christly Rowland and the Flukes came along, but stopped near Ashland. She also says that when they left Mansfield they went down the Rocky Fork to Jerry Smart's, then to Newville, then to Bellville, and had to cut their way through the woods. Her health is good and her memory bright for one so far advanced in life. The writer saw her a few days ago (December, 1883), and she is still in good health. -- Dr. Riddle. Submitted by Amy.

Young, John -- John Young, who came to Jefferson Township in an early day, and settled about two miles south of Bellville, was a son of William Young and Elizabeth Ford, and was the oldest of ten sons. He was born in Bedford Co., Penn., Nov. 20, 1796. His first distinct adventure in life was carpentry, which he commenced when about twenty-one years of age. He was married to Susan Keith, daughter of Lewis and Mary (Saltsman) Keith, August 8, 1819. The ceremony took place in Bedford Co., Penn. She was born Aug. 25, 1797, in Huntingdon Co., Penn. They came to Ohio in November, 1822, and settled south of Bellville soon after, where he lived and died, and where his wife, a very communicative and intelligent lady, yet resides. The first building he put up was modeled after the common pioneer cabin, and was destitute of either windows or doors. A table cloth hung in the window aperture, and a blanket in the opening for the door. Their children were Elizabeth, William, David Lewis, Simon B., Martha, Louiza and Mary. Elizabeth died Nov. 22, 1824; William, July 15, 1844; and Louiza, n the fall of 1852. Father Young died Nov. 23, 1867. Mr. and Mrs. Young were people of virtuous and strict habits, industrious and frugal, and they accumulated considerable property. Lewis and Simon now own portions of the old home farm. Mary married a Mr. Walters and resides in Kansas. Submitted by Amy. [Bellville Star: 27 July 1882, Vol. V, No. 43]

I cannot find anyone by that name in the list of those killed at Wyoming. I would suggest that the "banks of the Susquehanna" mentioned would be the West Branch of that river, since that flows through Lycoming County, as does the Juniata.
