Birth: Mar. 2, 1755
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 18, 1841
Seneca County
New York, USA

Nicolaus was spoken of as a "smith" and was a small taxpayer in Tulpehocken in 1780 and 1781. He did not own any land at that time, but in 1781 he had 1 cow. His name disappears from the tax rolls in 1785.
Based on birth records of his children, he left Tulpehocken after 1783 and moved to Cumberland County and then to Franklin County (now part of Cumberland).
About 1792 or 1793, they moved to Perry area of Cumberland County where he owned 2 adjacent farms in the Sherman Valley. After the War of 1812, Nicolaus and his son George sold their farms and moved to Seneca County, NY. They farmed in NY. Earlier, sons John and Thomas had already moved to Seneca County.

Nicolaus was a corporal in Captain Conrad Shirman's Co, 6th Battalion, Berks County Militia (Joseph Hiester, Colonel). In 1780, the company was called into active duty against the Indians for 2 months (Aug 10 to Sep 9).

Nicolaus's grave marker was damaged and replaced with a marker with his name misspelled as Nicholas Disinger 1776. This is believed to commerate his service in the American Revolution.
