Nicholas, the first born son of Nicola (Nicholas) was born in Zwiebrucken, Germany and came to America with his parents in 1751. His early boyhood was spent in Goshenhoppen/Bally, Pa. Around 1758, his family moved to Lancaster, PA. where Nicholas learned the tailoring trade from his father. He married Mary Eva Kuhn in 1768 subsequently purchasing a home on King Street in Lancaster. She died in 1778, leaving him with 3 small children. He remarried in 1779 to Anna Maria Weber.
During the early years of the Revolutionary War, Nicholas was part of the Third Company, First Battalion of the Lancaster County Militia under Captain Mathias Slaymaker.
By 1796, he moved to Baltimore, Md. purchasing a home at Eutaw and Saratoga Sts. In the early 1800 he formed an tobacco business partnership which eventually failed and necessitated his son William taking over and settling his debts. His body was originally interred at Hampstead Hill but was moved to New Cathedral with other family members when that cemetery closed.
He was recognized by the D.A.R. as a patriot in October 2011.
