John Martin Mickley
Birth: Mar. 3, 1745
Lehigh County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 11, 1830
Adams County
Pennsylvania, USA

John Martin was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He was in the battle of Germantown.

He married Eva Catherine Steckel (Stoeckel) 1768 in the Egypt Reformed Church, Lehigh Co, PA. They had 10 children:

-John Mickley (1769-1855)
-Peter Mickley (1770-1860)
-Maria Magdalena Mickley (1772-1854)
-Susannah Mickley (1773-1872)
-Anna Margaretha "Margaret Mickley (1775-1846)
-Daniel Mickley (1775-1864)
-Catherina Mickley (1777-1874)
-Juliana Mickley (1778-1867)
-John Jacob Mickley (1780-1868)
-Maria Barbara Mickley (b.1784)

John is the brother to the man who saved the Liberty Bell during the Revolutionary war. It was taken over enemy lines in a wagon load of manure.

Two of John's siblings, ages 7 & 9, were murdered by Native Americans. At the time John was 14 years old. Had he been playing with his siblings at the time the Native Americans invaded their property, he likely would have perished with them. The group of 12 Native Americans are thought to have been deterred by the family dog and they instead slaughtered the entire family next door. A chilling telling of the events of October 8th, 1863 can be found in the book "The Genealogy of the Mickley Family of America", pgs. 15-16, by Minnie Fogel Mickley.

Son of John Jacob Mickley and Elizabeth B. (Burkhalter) Mickley. Husband of Catharine Steckel. This couple bore 9 children in Northampton (now Lehihgh) before they settled in Adams County. Some children married into the Biery Family and remained in the Whitehall-Allentown area, while others who married accompanied their parents to Adams County.

Most historical accounts indicate he died in 1828. His gravemarker says 1830.

John Martin was a member of the Reformed Church. He was originally buried near Cashtown at Flohr's Cemetary. He was re-interred in 1864 at St John's Church Cemetery Mickleys, Lehigh Co., PA. Follow this link for the Flohr's Cemetery burial of John Martin Mickley
