I am a decendent of Peter SHEWFELT b 1765 in Albany, NY. He married Anna Maria KESTER b 1782 in Lower Mt Bethel, PA.
Peter was the son of Johannes ZUFELT and Sarah FREER.
Johannes (also known as Henry)was the son of Johann Wilhelm ZUFELT and Anna Maria STAHL
Johann Wilhelm was the son of Johann Georg ZUFELD and Anna Catharina SAHM
Johann Georg was the son of Georg ZOPHEL and Anna Catharina WALDEN.
Peter emmigrated to Canada during or shortly after the American Revolution. He applied for land in Ont. in 1796. His descendents use the surname SHEWFELT.
I have quite a bit of info on ZUFELTs and SHEWFELTs including a photocopy of a family tree book with abt 900 individuals done in the 1930's. Willing to do lookups.
I am interested in finding out where Peter's children were born. He had 12 children and the first 6 were born around Hamilton. In 1818 his 7th child and all the rest were born in Brock, Ont, Ont.
I believe Peter was in the war of 1812 but have found no info on him.
Peter's land petition in 1796 states that he was living in New Jersey before he came to Canada. I would like to find out where and find out what happened to his brothers and sisters.
Connections or info appreciated.
