1980 Boyer


BOYER, CARL, 3RD, editor, SHIP PASSENGER LISTS, Pennsylvania and Delaware (1641-1825). Newhall, Calif.: the editor, 1980. 289p. 4th pr. 1986. Reprint. Family Line Publications, Westminster, MD, 1992. Info here is from the 1992 Edition.

Page 9 - quotes a 1936 Otto Lohr article entitled "Einwanderer in Pennsylvania vor 1700," [Immigrants to Pennsylvania Before 1700] in Jahrbuch für Auslanddeutsche Sippenkunde, 1, (1936), 53-54 [Lancour No. 116], which lists:

Umstatt, Hans Peter, von Krefeld, 1685.

This item is also quoted in "Krefeld Immigrants," Vol 3 #1, 1986.


Lohr correctly spells Hans Peter's name Umstatt, although he shows him as coming from Krefeld. Since we've seen that several other German writers and historians have used Gov S W Pennypacker's information that Hans Peter was from Krefeld, and since Lohr cites no original documentation in his article, we can reasonably believe that he too quoted Pennypacker as regards Krefeld.

I have a copy of Lohr's article in the original German, obtained from Die Deutsche Bibliothek, Leipzig. It contains no further information specific to Hans Peter other than the listing above.
