Shared note


;Parents] Abraham and Marretje had recently moved to Fishkill from Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. When Peter was two, they moved to Washington County, Pennsylvania. On January 2, 1821, Peter took Margaret Sickman, daughter of Barnhart Sickman, for his wife. Margaret was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania on February 19, 1805. In 1822, Peter and Margaret had their first son, Abraham. In 1824 they moved to Stark County Ohio, living in Canton for the first year. In 1826, Peter purchased 80 acres of heavily timbered land in the Mapleton area, south of East Canton in Osnaburg Township. Peter and Margaret were consistent members of the Christian Church and donated the land where the current Indian Run Christian Church stands (off Hillchurch Street in Osnaburg Township, south of Mapleton)
