Peter Beaver1

M, b. 1750, d. between 1816 and 1817
     Peter Beaver was also known as Peter Bieber.2 He was born in 1750 at Weisenberg, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania; Bieber family only says born before 1750;
The reasons for settling on these dates for Peter Beaver are as follows. Christopher was born in 1768. Peter would mostly likely have been older than eighteen at this time. If Peter was the son of Lorentz and Catherine Adam, he may have been born next after Nicholas. This would probably have been about 1742. (See list of children for Lorentz on page 64 of Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Alsace to America by Annette Kunselman-Burgert.) Going by the order listed in Lorentz's will Peter may not have been one of the older children. (A note should be made at this point that Rev. I. M. Beaver on page 921 gives Peter as an heir of Lorentz.) Peter was living in February of 1815. He proved a deed he had made to his son, David Beaver (Deed Book 20 page 475). The deed had been made in 1812. Peter's will was dated 7-23-1815 and was probated in February of 1817. The place of burial for Peter is unknown although one would assume that he is buried at Organ Lutheran Church in Rowan County, NC.
Just as with Nicholas Beaver, an assumption has been made about the parents of Peter Beaver. Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Alsace to America by Burgert on page 64 gives a list of children for Lorentz Bieber and his wife Catherine Adam. Rev. I. M. Beaver on page 922 gives the same list of children. This list is from the Moselem Lutheran Church baptismal records. This list does not include Nicholas or Peter. However, Nicholas & Peter are listed as heirs in the will of Lorentz. Burgert on page 64 and Beaver on page 921 give Nicholas and Peter as heirs of Lorentz in an abstract of his will. Peter is to share equally with Nicholas and others. This seems to be enough to strongly suggest that Nicholas and Peter were brothers. The fact that Peter's oldest son, Christopher, was baptized at Weisenberg Lutheran Church where Nicholas was married is strong evidence that Peter and Nicholas were related. Some have suggested that Nicholas and Peter were half brothers and were born of different mothers! I believe that a 1742 date is plausible for the birth of Peter and that he and Nicholas were full brothers. -- Bieber family.3,4,5 He was born in 1750 at Berks County, Pennsylvania.2 He married Christina Sigern at Berks County, Pennsylvania, in 1767.6,7 Peter Beaver and Christina Beaver immigrated in 1783 to Rowan County, North Carolina; from Pennsylvania.6 As of 1790, Peter Beaver was also known as Peter Bever.8 Peter Beaver was also known as Peter Paul Bieber.6 He witnessed an unknown person 's death at Rowan County, North Carolina, in December 1801. This date is taken from Rev. Storch's diary. His entry states, "P. Biber wife buried 21 December 1801." It is most likely that "P. Biber" is a reference to Peter..6,4 He married Barbara ? at Rowan County, North Carolina, circa 1802.1,9 Peter Beaver left a will on 23 July 1815 at Rowan County, North Carolina; The will of Peter Beaver is found in Rowan County Will Book G on page 457. The following is that will which was probated in February of 1817.
