Name: Anna Barbara Kerkendall
Birth Place: Ge
Birth Year: 1706
Spouse Name: Peter Quattlebaum
Spouse Birth Year: 1698
Number Pages: 1
Immigration: Brigantine "John" in 1736
Date: 19 Oct 1736
Arrived In: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Colonies
Reference: "At the Courthouse of Philadelphia, October 19, 1736. Thirty-seven Foreigners, from the Palatinate, who, with their Families, making in all one hundred and ten persons, were imported here in the Brigantine John of Perth Amboy, George Frazer, Master, from Rotterdam, but last from Dover, as by Clearance thence, were this day qualified as usual." Petter was the second person to sign the oath of allegiance, and also to the oath of abjuration. The writing indicates he was a man accustomed to the use of a pen.
Accompanying Petter were his wife, Anna Barbara, three young daughters, Gertraud, Maria Catherina, and Anna Barbara, and perhaps infant son, Mathias. (Conjecture, based on known facts.) Maria Quattelbaum, likely the mother of Petter, presumably came over with him.
The family seems to have gone to the Frontier, for the name of Petter Quatterlbaum appears on a petition, dated June, 1739, for a road in Oley township, now in Berks County. It is here that the birth of their son Johannes is recorded. It is unknown how long the family actually lived on the Frontier.
The three oldest daughters married after moving back to Philadelphia
The burial of Petter is recorded  as January 14, 1748. He was 50 years of age. It was recorded that he left a widow and nine children. Only seven of the children's names are actually known.
Johannes (born February 18, 1742)
Peter (born 1744)
Johanna (born 1746)
The last known records in Philadelphia records the death of little Johanna. Just a month after her father died, the little two-year-old died and was buried, February 14, 1749.
It is believed that within the same year of Johanna's death in 1749, the entire family moved south, though the exact date is unknown. Descendants of Petter settled in the Dutch Fork of South Carolina, in modern day Lexington and Orange Counties.

First Dutch Reformed Church Burial Ground
Cemetery notes and/or description: Franklin Square, originally called Northeast Square. In its early years, the square was an open common used for grazing animals, storing gun powder (during the American Revolution) drilling soldiers (during the War of 1812). From 1741 to 1835, a portion of the Square was used as a cemetery by the German Reform Church; some of the graves still remain.

↑ Two sources of information developed since publication of the genealogy in the State Magazine. In 1938, P.J. Gebhardt, a genealogist of Berlin, Germany, made a report to Mrs. Ruby McGill Dodge of Albany, Texas, in which he lists a family consisting of Peter am Quattelbaum, his wif, Barbara Herckendall, and five children, all born before the emigration of the family to America: Maria Gerdrut, born 1728; Marie Catharina, born 1730; Anna Margaretha, born 1731; Anna Barbara, born 1733; Johann Peter, born 1736. There is no further record of Anna Margaretha. Johann Peter, born the year of emigration of the family to America, seems to have died young and his name perpetuated in later brothers. It thus appears that Matthias was born in Pennsylvania, probably about 1738. page ii, Paul Quattlebaum

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Petter 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 Petter:
I believe, based on what I have read about the marriage dates, that Wilhelm may very well have been Petter's brother rather than father. More research is needed on this question. Also, I suspect that the Quattelbaums were NOT from the Palatinate (Pfalz), but were likely mischaracterized as such by the English officials who greeted the immigrants on the Brigantine John, on which Petter and his family arrived.
