"6104-06. (Shoemaker, 5102-04)
The old farm house that formerly stood upon this site greatly resembled the Green Tree Inn, only it was much smaller. Michael Keyser, a tanner, was living here in 1800. He was born in 1745, and died in 1825...It was he who gave Christopher Sauer a coat and hat at the time when the latter was held a prisoner in Bastian Miller's barn after his arrest by Captain McClean's company. He also took off his own shoes and gave them to Sauer, who was in a pitiable state, having been almost stripped and otherwise maltreated. His arrest took place May 2, 1778..."
