I am researching Berne families and land records for the Berne History Project that you will find on line at www.Bernehistory.org Lot 823 was in the Town of Knox on Thompsons Lake Road.
I am interested in finding out more about Peter Pitcher Jr. The earliest Pitcher I have in the Berne / Knox area is Wilhelmus Pitcher b Dec 1777, d. 11 Dec 1849; md. Eva Zimmer. I have two ch.: Jeremiah b. Jan 1799 Knox, d. 17 Aug 1872 Town of Maine, Broome, NY; md. Eunice Hollenbeck. Peter W. b 9 May 1805 Knox, d. 21 Jul 1882; md. bef. 1824 Eleanor (?).
Could Peter Pitcher Jr. be the brother of Wilhelmus? Perhaps George and David were also brothers?
Do you have dates on the births of the children of Peter Jr. ? I have some unplaced Pitchers in my files that I believe could be some of them: Elizabeth b. 1811 md. Henry Fridendahl Rebecca b. 1818 md. Andres Beller Jr.
I would appreciate information on all Pitchers who have connections to Berne and Knox. Thank you.
