Peter Hunsacker (Huntzaker)b:
1658 Zweibrucken Germany & Anna Benedicta Welti
Peter was a resident of Zweibruecken in present day Rhineland
Palatinate, Germany. Zweibruecken is very near the French border
in an area that was fought over repeatedly in the religious wars of the
16th and 17th centuries. When William Penn invited the Protestants
to settle in Pennsylvania, large numbers of them took up on his offer of
free land. There were the Pennsylvania Dutch who still exist in considerable
numbers in central Pennsylvania today. Peter Hunsucker was one of
them. He and Anna and their family arrived in Philadelphia October 28,
1738 on the ship "Bilander Thistle" and then settled in Lancaster County,
Pennsylvania. Not all of these Dutch stayed in Pennsylvania.
