Johann Adam Huth

09/28/1737-07/28/1802 Only had one arm John Adam Huth. xiii, s. 10. July 28. Unmarried. (Christianspring.) Bom Sept. 28, 1737, in Hanau, Germany. He lost an arm in the fight and massacre at Hoeth's on the Pohopoko, in 17SS, and barely escaped with his life. [This individual's name appears on a page in the 1743-1755 Single Brothers' catalog that seems part of the list of individuals at Christiansbrunn. But nearly all the individuals listed on this page appear in no other lists of individuals at Christiansbrunn. We think it highly likely that this page aims to list single brothers in Bethlehem, not in Christiansbrunn, although the page's placement in the catalog seems to suggest differently. So Huth probably was not in Christiansbrunn until 1767, when his name begins to appear regularly on other lists of people.]
