In Reply to: HANS GEORG PETERY , PETRY, PETREY by Marilyn Canfield of 568

I don't know specifics of Hans George Petry, but have other information which may relate...

I am a descendant of Steffan Petry of Strausburg France/ Germany who came to USA by ship on Nov 5, 1764. He settled in York Co. Pa - next to Lancaster Co.

Steffan married Anna Danner and had seven children. We have a book "Three Sons of Steffan Petry" which has been published. Only 3 sons (George, Jacob, Henry) had children.

George was born Aug 1, 1762 in Strausburg. married Catarina Kaltreider, sired 7 children.

I am of line of 8th son of Steffan, Henry, who moved from York to Carrol Co., Md, then to Preble Co., Ohio by 1860. I was reared in Preble Co.

I don't know if this will help you, but records being inconsistent in that day, I thought it might.

Perhaps Hans George and Steffan were brothers or cousins !

I now reside in Montgomery Co., Ohio.

Let me know if you want any further information.
