Peter Becker is a Volga German.
Peter Becker has German Roots.
Family #318 in the 1834 Grimm census.
I'm not sure how he fits into the Becker family, all of whom are related in some way. The 1798 census says a Peter Becker immigrated with his family to the Colony of Kraft, but there is no indication of who those family members are.
He is different from Johann Peter Becker, son of Jost Becker; their birth years don't match, and he is listed separately in the same appendix as having moved to the Colony of Kraft.
One of them may have returned, or this Peter may be someone completely different. Note that it is very unusual to find a single person, with no family, listed in the census.
