Steven, thanks for the great details! it is clear that you have done a lot more work on this particular family than I have so far. I will have to digest this and see what I might be able to add, if anything.
I don't know where the Maryland Clubb families came from. I'll have to look into that and see if I can find anything. You are right that just because there is only one "Klop" immigrant listed on a ship's passenger list doesn't necessarily mean that there was only one. The Clubb in NC could be a different person. On the other hand, the area of PA where the Lincoln Co., NC families came from is very close to the MD line, so the MD Clubbs could be part of the same family.
One question that I have...you mention that there is a will for Peter Sr. in Tulpehocken dated Sept 1753. Is that the date the will was written, or the date it was probated? Is it possible that he recorded a will in PA, but moved to NC before he died? This is apparently what happened with the other Peter (Jr?) in Lincoln Co., NC. There is a will written 26 November 1802, but with no probate date. I don't have the actual will, only an abstract, but it says that Peter (Jr?) was "of Union County, SC, wife Margaret. Son Anthony Clubb. My stepdaughter Sarah Warvel. EXEC. Anthony Clubb. WIT. Anthony Peeler." This Peter recorded his will in NC, but didn't die there, apparently. There is a transcription of a will for a Peter Clubb in Madison Co., MO, dated 21 April 1827. Again, I have not seen this actual will, and I don't know if this is the date recorded, or the date probated. In the transcription, Peter names his wife Margaret, and son Anthony. I believe this is the same Peter who recorded the will in Lincoln Co., NC.
Peter's son Anthony was an 1812 soldier. In his pension file, Anthony states: "I was an entier stranger to the most of the company. My Fathe fled from the earthqucks in Mosuri and stoped in Colwell County Cantucky. I joined Wadlington's Company and was ordered out on the frontier on Tenesee River..." I presume Anthony is talking about the New Madrid earthquake of 1811. His father (Peter) was in MO, fled to KY because of the earthquakes, and returned to MO later, evidenced by the date on the will in Madison Co., MO. Anthony enlisted for the war during the time that they were living as refugees in KY.
As I said, I will need some time to digest the new information. Nice exchanging with you!
