The Indian Capture of Jacob (Kneisle) Nicely
by Ronald Earl Nicely




Overview -
The Four-Mile Run, located near the town of Ligonier, PA, was the scene of many conflicts and captures during the time from 1760 through 1790. The story of the (Kneisle) Nicely family is just one of stories from this area. The Knusli Mennonite ancestors originated in Zurich Switzerland and traveled through London to Philadelphia and then to Lancaster, PA in 1717. The (Kneisle) Nicely descendant line moved to a homestead near Four-Mile Run Circa 1761. This book covers their journeys and the Indian capture of Jacob Kneisle. It is a remarkable story covering his capture, his life as a Native American, and the reunion of his descendants with the Nicely family 228 years after his capture. Nicely presents several other capture stories to give the reader a historic view of the dangerous conditions that existed around Four-Mile Run during the Revolutionary War. His interest in genealogy led him to the capture of Jacob Kneisle (Nicely), known by his Native American name of Tsu-Ka-We or Crow.
