Peter and Catharine were married in 1789, Schwarzwald Reformed Church, Berks County, Pennsylvania

Peter, who was only 16 years old at the time, was believed to have assisted his father on the battlefield at Brandywine, administering medical aid to fallen soldiers. After the battle, the wounded were removed, in ox carts, to the Cloister in Ephrata and there the Palms continued to render medical aid to the wounded for another three months.
