Re: Peelman Lancaster Co PA 1700s
You may have already found this.Christian Peelman (Pealman) died circa. 1749.He had five daughters.I don't know his wife's name,yet.The daughters were: Anna who married Jacob Shelley; Barbara who married Hans Kugle; Magdalen married Christian Shelley; Elizabeth married John Hege; Eve married Jacob Mishy and Mary who married Jacob Segrist.Christian Peelman had a warrant from John Herr et al. for a farm in Hemphill Township, Lancaster County in 1735.He may have been there earlier.When he died some of his daughters were minors and unmarried.See Lancaster Co. Deed Book M, page 168 referring to Lancaster Co. Deed Book A, page 163.I don't know which ship Christian Pealman arrived upon.His name must have been adversely spelled in other records.John Hege (Hagy) died in Franklin County.His Will (written in JAN 1807, probated in FEB 1807) is in the courthouse at Chambersburg, PA.It is Will Book B, page 314.I descend from one one of his (John Hege's) children, Peter Hege (1759-1847).Stay in touch.
