Re: Susannah Darst m. Peter Butcher
Sheryl, Susan Darst c1800-1845, was the daughter of Peter Darst 1759-1843 and Elizabeth Fisher. Susan, along with brother John, the above Peter and wife Elizabeth and about a half dozen other individuals are all buried in what was once the Old Darst Cemetery. The old family burial ground once existed on land owned by Peter Darst SR in Troy TWP., Delaware CO., OH. Subsequent owners of that land which I will not name, plowed up the cemetery a long time ago. Peter Darst was born in Exeter TWP., Berks CO., OH, the son of the immigrant Johann Paul Derst 1713-1775, a native of Pfeddersheim, Germany - who arrived at Philadelphia in 1732 ( on a ship by the way which saw a mutiny and the death of nearly 50 souls).
