Re: John Peter Salen born Heidleberg Germany
Here is what we know on John Peter(Pierre) Salen.
He went to school where their father taught in Germany.He ran away from home at the age of 15 and ended up in Canada.There he met and married Catherine Fisher.They had eight children.
His father was also John Peter Salen. And came to visit from Germany.
We do know that there were brothers Lewis and William. But we have not proven that your William is a brother and not a cousin. We have not found Lewis yet.Here is what we have at this website.
