In Reply to: Fort Seybert by Kelsey Seybert of 234

There were six children who were taken prisoners by the Indians after the attack of Fort Seybert on April 28, 1758. Nicholas Seybert was sold to the French and he escaoed and afterwards he ran a trading post at Seneca, Maryland; after serving in the Revolutionary War he settled in what is now Highland County; he never married.
The other five children of Jacob and Elizabeth Seybert -- John Henry, George, Margaret, Elizabeth, and Catherine were released by the Indians after the French Indian War and they came to Seneca Maryland where they met up with their brother, Nicholas. Henry married Rachel Trail. George married Mary Shepherd, Margaret married William Janes, Elizabeth married Henry Janes and Catherine married George Crox. Nicholas, Henry, George, Margaret, and Elizabeth moved to what is now known as Highland County, Virginia.
