Johann Peter Binkley (Binckele, Binggeli) was born March 2, 1704 in Guggisberg, Bern, Switzerland,  son of Christen Binggeli and Elsbeth Burri. He was Christened on March 2, 1704 in Guggisberg, Bern, Switzerland. 
In his Moravian memoir, Peter said that his father died when he was about 9, and when he was 13 his mother moved to Alsace.  He was living with his brother in the Steinthal district of France, sometimes listed as Germany (see notes) when he met and married Anna Maria Werle (born 28 Oct 1704 in Belmont (Alsace) France). (1704-1748); They married on 2 Feb 1725 in Alsace, France. They came to America in 1736 on the Princess Augusta.  They lived at Warwick (Lititz) and then near York, PA, where Anna Maria died in 1748. 
Peter married Anna Margaretha Geiger (1722-1803), widow of Johannes Schemel, in 1749, moved with her to Monocacy, Maryland in 1763, and finally settled near Bethania, Stokes County (now Forsyth), North Carolina, in 1772. He died there on August 3, 1793, survived by 11 of his total of 23 children from the two marriages.
He was buried in the cemetery at Bethania Moravian God's Acre in Bethania, (Forsyth County), North Carolina. Grave# 85.  His will went into probate in Stokes, North Carolina. 
In total, Peter had 23 children, 14 with Anna Maria Werle; :

He is consistently called Peter in the many church records that refer to him, never Johann Peter. We believe that Johann was introduced into a 20th century family history or compilation of records, and have therefore removed it as part of his birth name.
"Born in Guckensberg, Canton of Bern, Switzerland, March 2, 1704, son of Christian Binckele, who died there in 1713. In 1724 Peter married Anna Maria Werley, (Died in 1748)." 
The Steintal District of Alsace has at times been a part of Germany, but was at that time, and is now, part of France. Hennings-109 11:02, 6 June 2016 (EDT)
Guggisberg is sometimes spelled Guckensberg in the records.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Peter by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Peter:
I have edited the profiles of the 7 children born to Peter in Bellefosse, France. This was his residence from 1725 to 1735. I have used used the original primary source, which is the church books from the parish of Waldersbach. These records are unassailable, and any other names or birth dates from sources in America must be listed as secondary or alternate data.
I am not familiar enough with Peter's family records in America to do more editing than I have done today. The others who have contributed to the profiles of Peter and his European children should review their own contributions and edit them.
The only one true and primary source for the first 8 children of Peter is the church book of Waldersbach. It's available on LDS film 0785133, and it's available (for free, but on a French language web site). I gave that information to Elizabeth Harris some time ago, and I think she plans to access that site when time allows. Elizabeth also should have access to the records of the First Moravian Church of York, PA for the next bunch of children, and then the records of the Moravian Community & congregation of Graceham MD. These 2 sources are the closest thing to primary records for the rest of Peter's children.These sources must be used to obtain the correct names, birth dates, and baptism dates of Peter's children. Elizabeth knows these sources, and is working on these children.
Binckele-13 and Binggeli-7 appear to represent the same person because: I wasn't sure why these hadn't been proposed as a merge yet under the Binkley Name Study ... they are duplicates, and Binggeli is the correct last name.
Binggeli-18 and Binggeli-7 appear to represent the same person because: Same wife (although her profile needs to be merged into Werle-13). Please keep all the data and links from Binggeli-18 in the merged profile.
