Descendents of Johannes Peter Grub of Northampton, PAUpdated September 9, 2001
|This Grube family descends from Johannes Peter Grub of Williams Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. The family added the final "e" to the Grub name in the early 1800's. Some members of this family have also spelled their name as "Grupe". |
Peter Grub arrived in Williams Township from Germany (probably from Offenbach Am Glan, Rheinland, Preussen) in the 1753. There were already Grub's living in the area, including Andreas Grub, and a Jacob Grub, who arrived in America in 1738. We don't yet know the relationship between Andreas, Jacob and Peter. Peter purchased about 200 acres of land and built a house in the 1760's. This house is still standing, although no longer owned by the family, and you can see a photo of it below.
Peter first married Maria Amalia Grill on January 2, 1748/49 in Offenback Am Glan, Rheinland, Preussen. They had four children, all born after arriving in America. They were Johannes Peter Grub, Jr. (1755-1823), Catharina Grub (born 1757), Margaret Grub (born 1759) and Maria Elisabeth (born 1758). Sometime between 1759-1760 Peter was married for the second time to Magdalena and they had 4 children: Johannes George Grub (2-18-1763 to 12-16-1848), Elisabeth (b. ca. 1761-married John Super), Maria Magdalena (b. ca. 1760), and Sarah (b. ca. 1767-married Michael Reichert).
