Biography

Peter was born in 1781.

I was unable to find any reference to him and Mary Magdaline, the female listed as his daughter in this profile. I did find other children with that middle name, but that doesn't hold evidence. The evidence that would match is that the children were all christened in Caroll County, Maryland, which would match with where Peter was buried.

Peter passed away and was buried in the United Church of Christ cemetery in Manchester, Carroll County, Maryland on 2 July 1859.[1]

Research Notes

For further perusal here are the children I did find. Please remove these research notes if they turn out to be inaccurate. If these were his children, then it is highly possible he married a Mary Sense and not a Polly Sellers as appears evident in a user submitted profile on familysearch.org.

Possible children.

Catharina Gettier born 27 Oct 1822 [2].

William Philip born 04 Dec 1824 [3].

Mary Catherine Elizabeth born 11 June 1827 [4].

Amanda Amelia born 17 Feb 1829 [5].

Barbara Ellen Eve born 08 Jan 1832 [6].

Rebecca Ann Magdalene born 03 Sep 1834 [7].

George August born 28 Aug 1835 [8]

John Edward born 22 July 1831 [9].

All information I have gathered based on the name, birth and death date that was put on this profile.
