Peter married Katerina (Hoffman)in Germany and immigrated to America around 1839-1941. They had three children: John Louis, Jacob and Katherine.
John and his brother, Jacob, had immigrated to America in 1838 and settled in Ohio. Jacob may have gone to Florida but no further information is known about him after arriving in America. After immigrating to America John, returned to Germany to bring back his parents and younger sister, Katherine. John and his family lived, worked and died nearly on one square mile of Ohio soil for many years near Tiffin, Ohio.
