It is most probable that Johann Adam Schieb, born October 28, 1707 in Odernheim, Germany, is the father of Peter Shipe. Johann married his second wife Juliana Magdalena Suter on August 9, 1735 in Odernheim. They sailed on the "Molly", arriving in Philadelphia on October 17, 1741. In 1761, Johann purchased 108 acres of land in the central part of Hatfield Twp., and he accepted title to the 108 acres of land under the name of ADAM SHIPE. Adam Shipes children were: Mickel, Henry, George, Peter, Barbara, Caterina, Jacob, Adam, and Margaret Magdelena. Adam Shipe died February 1778 in Hatfield Twp. and is believed to be buried in the graveyard at Leidys Emanuel Church near Souderton, PA.
