Re: Peter Biermacher/Biermacker/Biermaker
Thank you Richard for your info. My sister-in-law will be very happy with this info. We had not been able to locate Beany's burial site. We found one Peter's,not her husband's but his cousin's, burial site and all info we have from Beany's husband's obit says he is buried there too eventhough the sexton says he isn't. The census from this area shows both Peters living about 6 houses apart. We have been trying to figure out why the name changed from Biermacher to Biermaker and all we can come up with, from one Peter's son, is that my sister-in-law's great grandfather switched to Biermaker because he kept getting the other Peter Biermacher's mail. Don't know if this is true or how to confirm if it was a legal name change or just he chose to spell it that way to distinguish him from the other Peter. We also have a listing of Beany's name as Suan which made it even more confusing as the other Peter was married to a Suzanne.Which of the Peter's are you related too?
