Hans Gasper Kolb b 1692 Swartzenau Palatinate came 1729 (possibly 2nd trip?) and was pos married to Anna Phillis Felicitas who was on the ship with him (some think she might be a sister, no confirmation). After living in Bucks co and Tohickon he came about 1750 to Fishing Creek now in Craven SC. He had 1) Mary 1731, 2) Barbara 1733, 3) Margaret Felicitas 1735, 4) Catherine 1737, 5) Henry 1738 Tohickon, 6 Peter Felicitas 1739, 7) Benj Franklin, 8) Augustine,9) John
His parents are Peter Schumacher Kolb and Maria Barbara Franciscas. He moves to the Catawba area about 1750, close to the same time that our Peter Clubb arrives from Lancaster co Pa.
Our Peter Clubb has 1) Gasper F (Franciscas as in Hans Gasper's mother) (cf Hans Gasper 1692) It was common to name your son after your father, especially if the son is first born. 2) Mary (cf Hans Gasper's 2nd child), 3) Elizabeth 1745, 4) Barbara 1746 (cf Hans Gasper's mother Maria Barbara) 5) Margaret Maria after 1750 (cf #3 of Hans, and Maria, Hans mother), 6) Eve bef 1755, 7) Peter G (assume Gasper. Peter is also Hans Gasper's father).
I have not found any ships record for Peter Clubb, and from the land transaction 1734 Lancaster I assume he is at least 21 and so born about 1713. Nor have I yet found proof that he was by Hans Gasper's assumed first marriage. But coming from the same Mennonite/Dunker community in Pennsylvania, having the remarkable name comparisons, and Kolb easily slipping into Clubb when one moves from German to English, I think there is a good possibility that these folks match. I will seek records in Lancaster and Bucks to see if I can confirm this.
