Birth: Sep. 21, 1792
Luzerne County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1843
Morgan County
Ohio, USA

The cemetery was searched by a volunteer to try to locate Peter's burial, but his headstone could not be found. It was likely washed away or damaged by the nearby river during flooding.

Peter was born in Bedford, Luzerne, PA. It seems that there is no Bedford in Luzerne County.

Peter married Temperance Sutliff, about 1817 in Morgan Co., OH. The had 10 known children.

Peter served in the military, rank: Private.

There are reports that the Koskey Cemetery has been damaged by flooding (it's right next to the Muskingum River), so it's possible that his headstone was washed away in flooding. His name is not included in the reading of the cemetery that was conducted in 1982.

There is proof that Peter died in Morgon Co. He appears in "Ohio Wills and Estates to 1850: An Index by Carol Willsey Bell, C.G.", pg. 364, as follows:

Vanclief, Peter E-1845 MG cpmbG p194

This indicates that there is record of his estate in Morgan Co., Ohio Common Pleas Minute Book G, Pg. 194.
