  • Notes 
    • "Pioneer Peiter" came to America on the ship "Robert and Alice" out of Dublin, Ireland, arriving on 11 Sep 1738. The English Quakers of Pennsylvania resented the influx of Germans and forced them to take an oath of loyalty to King George II. Peiter did this upon his arrival. He was a member of the Committee of Safety in 1748 and served in Captain Samuel Corbin's company during the "Spanish Alarm" the same year. Peiter and Cathrine lived two years in Pennsylvania in either Berks or Lancaster Co., and then moved on to Frederick, Maryland for several years. The better land having been taken, they packed their possessions into covered wagons and traveled south, through the Shenandoah Valley, into Bladen Co., North Carolina (now Gaston Co.)
