Peter Arkenburgh was born 1788 in Columbia Co. NY son of Jacob Erckenbrecht and Catherine Meier. Peter married Rebecca Hummel and lived in Madison Co. NY in 1820, Erie Co. PA in 1840, and Oneida Co. NY in 1850. His children were Nicholas 1809, Ketty 1807, Elisa 1811 and Peggy 1813 whose births are recorded in Columbia Co. I believe he was also the father of Cornelius, Giles, Jacob, Morgan and Levina. Cornelius was born c 1814 and died in 1878 in Syracuse. He married Mary Misner b 1818 in Ulster Co. daughter of Abram and Susan. If you recognize any of these people I'd like to hear from you.
