Additional Notes

In the Baptismal Book of 1726 of the Reformed Marienkirche, Hanau on Main, the baptism for Jacob is recorded. It lists his day of birth and reads,
"The father is Herman Arndt Burger and Horn maker in Neustadt, the Mother Anna Margretha, the Godparents Johann Jacob Konig Burger add Comb maker in Alstadt and his wife, the child to be called Johann Jacob."

In 1733 Peter immigrated to Philadelphia on the ship Hope of London. He was with his wife, Katrina, parents, and siblings Jacob, Michael, and Maria. [Spottswood, GED]

Family researcher Dennis Copeland of California writes:
"In 1750 Peter and Katrina (Catherine) moved to the frontier of Anson County, North Carolina. The family was Pennsylvania German ("Dutch"). Peter and Katrina settled on the future site of Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina.

Peter moved to Caraven County, South Carolina, between 1768 and 1771. Peter bought property which was located on both sides of the north spur of Lynches Creek (later Lancaster-Kershaw and Chesterfield Counties)."

In the book, Carolina Cradle, Settlement of the Northwest Carolina Frontier, 1747-1762, page 58, we read:
"Peter Arndt, unlike most of his countrymen, had apparently become associated with the English and Scotch Irish. His house was located near several springs on the site of the future town of Salisbury."

In the History of Anson County, North Carolina 1750-1976, page 22, by Mary Medley, it is written:
"The Colonial Records give an account of a Thursday - Friday, May 26-27 meeting in 1756 of chief justices and principal gentlemen with King Hagler and fifteen warriors. The group went to the house of Peter Arrant, ordinary keeper [inn keeper] in Salisbury."

The warriors were Catawba Indians.
Between 1753 and 1755 his house was used as a meeting place for the county court.

Researcher Copeland complied this list of books and records that contain information about Peter.
