Peter Christian Marchal, born abt 1830 - France?

  of 65

Peter Marchal's trunk contained the following message when he arrived in America - "Peter Marchall, aus Zwiebrucken." It is said that he crossed into Germany and claimed to be German to be able to leave France. As his Naturalization papers state he was in Kentucky by 1851, we know he arrived by that time.

About 1855 Peter married Mary Elisabeth Klink. They had five children - Elisabetha, Caroline, Maria Elisabeth, Phillip George and Peter Christian. Peter died in 1863 Uniontown, Union Co., KY. Any help on Peter's parents or siblings would be greatly appreciated.
