Birth: May 19, 1810
Zell an der Mosel
Cochem-Zeller Landkreis
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
Death: Mar. 13, 1895
Fulton County
New York, USA

Peter married about 1832 and immigrated to the USA from Prussia(Germany) with his wife Margaret Maas or Mais, son Martin,daughter Margaret and brother Nicholas' family in May of 1852 arriving June 1st on the Meridian via Liverpool. His burial site is unknown. He swore allegiance on 10/22/1868 at 59 years of age and was naturalized a U.S. Citizen 10/29/1870, see document on right. One report showed that he was buried in the Johnstown Cemetery but no burial stone has been found yet. It is possible that he was stored in the Johnstown vault until he could be buried in a Catholic cemetery when the ground thawed. Family lore also suggests that he came from Koblenz on the Mosel River. However the manifest showing his origin was found about 2012 and then this writer traveled to the wine growing region on the Mosel River where people with the German name of Schupp still live. His death certificate file # in NYS Lib is 33379. The cert. states that he died at 84 years 10 months 11 days. His son Martin apparently did not know the names of Peter's parents. In Germany their surname is spelled Schupp.
