I have been corresponding with another researcher, and he
has proved to me that I made a mistake on one of these
The mistake is with Peter, son of Peter. This Peter is not
the one who married Catherine Siegrist. The Peter who
married Catherine was actually a Sentz, whose family was
from Germany. He was brother of the Nicholas Sentz who also
lived in York Co PA. He also had a son Peter, who is
probably the other one in York Co on the 1790 census.
My Peter son of Peter apparently remained in Baltimore Co.
A 1798 record shows him owning land there. He and his
father are both listed, as is Peter son of Christian.
I still see only one Peter after that, who is the one who
married Catherine Shroyer. I still think he was son of
Christian, because of the 1809 record. Peter Jr may have
died in 1807. I currently have that as the death date of
Peter Sr, but there is a Peter age 45+ in Baltimore Co on
the 1810 census who must be Peter Sr.
I'll have to keep digging and hope to find some more
evidence to clear this up.
