Gable and Peeling Families of Pennsylvania (Greywolf Histories)
The Rev. Judith A. Meier
内容HISTORY OF TWO PIONEER FAMILIES IN PENNSYLVANIA
The Gables arrived from Germany in the early 18th century, particpated in the Revolutionary War, ran taverns in both Pennsylvania and Nebraska, and intermarried with several other well-known families. The first Peeling was a Scots-Irishmen who came to America as an indentured servant. As soon as war broke out, he grabbed his gun and joined a unit of Riflemen. His tour of duty included a number of bloody battles and wintering at Valley Forge. After being wounded and captured, he was shipped back to England, where he spent the duration of the war in Mill Prison. He returned to post-war America to take up the life of a basket-maker and to father a prominent family in York County.
This thoroughly researched genealogy includes excerpts from hard-to-find resources to flesh out what are already fascinating lives. This is the first of a series of Meier genealogies. Other family names will include Horton, Zimmerman, Eggleston, Howland, Alden, Bosworth, Downey, and many others.
