  22. Before any white man settled in this area, the indians inhabit this area. Because of the French and Indian War the Indians would attack English settlers, but Germans and others were in less danger. There were many different Indian tribes that were a part of this area or traveled through this area after being displaced from their homeland to the east, north and south. Some of these were at war with one another. This was the Wild, Wild West of the 1700’s. Some of these Indians Included Shawnee, Seneco, Iroquois, Catawba, Delaware, Toms and the Susquehannock Indians. http://www.littlesto...ety/history.htm It is believed that the very first white man to settle into any part of what is Adams County, was Andrew Shriver. It was in the year 1734 and he was just 21 years of age. He, his new bride Ann Maria Keiser, and his step brother David Jung (Young), ventured west. They had come by covered wagon from just outside of Philadelphia. They found a spot about three miles north - north east of what is now Littlestown that was beautiful and where in some spots the meadow grass grew higher than the wagon. They cleared three acres and planted corn, which they had brought along on their venture west. This took them about three weeks. Once the corn was planted Andrew’s step brother David returned to the Philadelphia area. Andrew and his wife Ann built a hut and covered this with bark from trees. Before winter they had built a cabin. He arranged to guarantee his ownership in the land by buying 100 acres - not from William Penn but from John Digges, who claimed ownership from Lord Baltimore. Young Andrew Shriver agreed to pay by furnishing “100 pairs of Negro Shoes.” Andrew served as an apprentice to a shoe maker and Andrew learned to tan leather and make shoes before he came to this area. A year after they arrived they had a son named David. This all took place in an area in the vicinity of the “Old George Basehoar Farm” and the Christ Church area. They were not alone, they were visited by the local Indians, who were at war with each other, but caused the Shrivers no harm. It was shortly after this that many German immigrants and others began to settle into this area. In 1760 A German of about 40 years of age by the name of Peter Klein purchased 311 acres.
