NOTES: From "LEVERING FAMILY HISTORY AND GENEALOGY" by Col. John Levering, published 1897; Pgs. 109-110, 122-128.
Mr. Jones states of Peter Keyser: "He was a tanner and of Dutch descent. Mr. Peter A. Keyser, of Phila., says of his ancestors: "Dirk Keyser came from Amsterdam to Germantown via New York in 1688, with one son named Peter Dirck, then eleven years old. Peter Dirck married on Sept. 4, 1700, Margaret Sieple, and had a son Dirk, b. 1701, d. 1756, who married Alice Neus, now written Nice. They had four sons, viz., John; PETER, b. 1732; Derick, Michael and two daughters, one of whom, Elizabeth, m. Andrew Wood, of Roxb.
The Keyser connection with the Levering family is one of the most numerous, as an analysis of this work will disclose. The history of "The Keyser Family," as compiled by Hon. Charles S. Keyser, of Philadelphia, and published in 1888, shows the Levering relation.
Mrs. Hannah Levering Keyser d. Aug. 19, 1775. In 1787 Mr. K. m. Mary Mechlin. He d. March 11, 1818. Both are buried in the German Baptist Church grounds in Germantown.
