Hans Jerg Dieter and Johann George Dieter and George Teter, Sr., are all the same man.He was born in Schwaigern as Hans Jerg, also written as Johann Georg, in 1699.I am a descendant of a brother of his, one Johann Philip Dieter, born in 1717.There were eight children in this family of Johann Michael Dieter and Maria Catharina Freyer.
I would be interested in finding out the source that states the couple had 15 children.I am aware of two being born in Schwaigern before they came to the new world in 1727.I have not seen that many attributed to the couple.I am aware that there is a second George Teter line floating around the same region, but I have not dug into that area.
And yes, the family came on the ship Molly in September 1727, as records in Schwaigern show their application with authorities to leave there for Pennsylvania shortly before that time.It is also interesting that the Schwaigern records indicate Maria, his wife, returned to Schwaigern and died there in 1759.
I would appreciate any information you have on the Samuel and Mary Teter family.This is still a new research area for me, especially on this side of the pond.I have researched my father's lines in Germany for thirteen years, now I am turning to my mother's side, one branch of which statrted in Schwaigern, went to Russia, then came to America.
