Christopher Peavler; Peebler, Pebler, Bibler and variations

Periodically I see material saying that early Biblers sometimes were listed under such surnames as Peebler, Pebler, Peavler and others. Recently I have seen something saying that a Christopher Peavler who was said to have been born born between 1756 and 1761 _ or in 1778 _ and apparently in Dunmore co., VA _ and who was also said to have married in Virginia, was also known as Christian Bibler/Peebler. One of his sons was also named Christopher Peavler and married Catherine Yeast (Yost with two dots over the o). Some have traced that first Christopher to, going backward in time, Jacob Beeler/Pibler/Pavler, to Christopher Barler/Pavlur/Puebler of the Germanna colony of 1771, an immigrant born 1696 in Schwartzwaldkreis, Wuerttermberg, Germany.

I don't know of any early Christopher Bibler _ nor of any Christopher Bibler later, for that matter. The first Bibler in America of whom I know is Johann Franciscus Bibler b. 1711 in Baden, Germany, who arrived at Philadelphia in 1751. He and offspring next were in Virginia in the late 1700s and then the family went into Ohio in the early 1800s.

My questions:
__Does anyone know whether that Christopher Peavler who also was known as Christopher Bibler had any connection with others known by the Bibler surname?
__ Does anyone know of any Peavler Peebler et al variations who was known as a Bibler per se, and/or who had Biblers in his or her downline or ancestors?

Tis a great mystery, all this *s*
