First let me give you everything i have on Klop. and Clubb in Pa
Tulpehocken map shows lands of first settlers and mentions" Peter and Jacob Klopp arrived after May 13, 1723" which is the date of major in migration of the Palatinates.
1730 Tulephocken church records, I find no Klop, CLubb, Glubb.
1734 warrant, returned l74l for Peter Clubb or Grubb.(apparnetly the l890 transcriber had a hard time reading that part of the handwriting.This was also the transcriber who added a note that Clubb = Klop.My daughter works in geology in Penn and is doing a search to come up with the original, untranscribed warrant so we can take a good look to see if that Clubb= Klop is on the original or done by the transcriber.)

re your question about whether he had a will in l753 in Penn and then moved to NC.The will was proven in Penn, so he died there.Besides our Peter Clubb of Nc had will l784 (if I remember the date right).
I don't know how much space one can type in for gen.com so let me send you another followup with the deeds etc for Peter and the mentions of early Clubbs.
