Wills, Publisher, 1895, page 13 Peter Schumacher was a Mennonite. While living in Germantown he connected himself with the Society of Friends. He emigrated from Kriesheim (then written Krigsheim) a small village in the Palatinate (Pfaltz). By an agreement, made with Dirk Sipman, of Crefield, dated August 16, 1685, he was to proceed with the first good winds to Pennsylvania, and there receive 200 acres from Herman Op den Graeff , on which he should erect a dwelling and for which he should pay a rent of two rix (dollars) a year. The deed for the said 200 acres, from Sipman to Peter Schumacher, is written in the Dutch or Holland language, and is recorded in the Germantown book called the "Terrier" and is in the Recorder's office in Philadelphia.

The "Pennsylvania Magazine," vol. Viii. P. 337, in a list of families who arrived in Philadelphia 1682-1687, says, "The Ffrancis and Dorothy from London , Richard Bridgeman Commander, arrived at Philadelphia the 16th of the 8th month 1685, among the passengers were Peter Shoemaker and Peter his son, Mary his daughter & Sarah his cousin, Frances and Gertrude his daughters." On the same ship were Gerhard Hendricks, with his wife Mary, his daughter Sarah (Sarah Hendricks later married Isaac, son of George and Sarah Shoemaker.), and his servant Heinrich Frey, the last named from Altheim, in Alsace. Judge Pennypacker says, -- "Peter Schumacher, an early Quaker convert from the Mennonites, is the first person definitely ascertained to have come from Kriegsheim. Fortunately we know under what auspices he arrived. By an agreement with Dirck Sipman, of Crefeld, dated August 16, 1685, he was to proceed with the first good wind to Pennsylvania, and there receive two hundred acres from Herman Op den Graeff, on which he should erect a dwelling, and for which he should pay a rent of two rix-dollars a year." Notes from the book, "Genealogy of the Shoemaker Family of Cheltenham, Penna" by Benjamin H. Shoemaker, 1903. Having settled in Germantown, Peter Schumacher soon became an active citizen, and at the same time an earnest member in the Society of Friends, and was one of the four persons who signed the certificate of Samuel Jennings, 1693, as a delegate from the Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting to the Yearly Meeting at London. Peter Schumacher died in Germantown in 1707, aged eighty-five years. His daughter Frances married, at Abington Meeting, 5 mo. 28, 1690, Isaac Jacob van Bebber. The daughters Mary and Gertrude are not known to have married.

Shoemaker Publication: 1903 Lippincott Philadelphia, PA search/4/data/129 Information from Van Bibber Pioneers newsletter, on line, Vol 2 #10 Excerpted from "From Kreigsheim to Pennsylvania" by Wilhelm Niepoth. In 1655, Agnes, the widow of Arnold Schumacher, came before the rent controller in the village of Dollendorf, near Lowenburg, in the Siebengebirge hills on the east bank of the Rhine, south of Cologne. The Schumachers were Menonites and were being forced to sell their land and move. She appointed Eithum, her son-in-law, as trustee for her sons Peter & George, both of age, and guardian for minors Arnold, Treinchen & Adelgen. Agnes was born Roesen. Arnold was the son of Agnes & Arnold, Adelgen was the daughter of Mathias Bonn, a son-in-law of Agnes, whose mother, name unknown and a sister of Peter, must have been dead. It is unknown what the exact relationship of Treinchen to Agnes was. The family moved to Mainz, where Agnes probably died, soon after 1655. They then moved to Kreigsheim, near Worms. By 1685, Peter's wife and his brother George had both died. Peter took his family, consisting of son Peter and daughters Mary, Frances & Gertrude, to America. They arrived in 1685 and settled in Germantown, Pa., where Peter died several years later. Another daughter, name unknown, the wife of Dielman Kolb, stayed behind in Germany, as did Peter's brother Arnold. According to "The Shoemaker Family" by Thomas H. Shoemaker, Peter and his family sailed from London on "Francis & Dorothy" on 8 mo: 14: 1685. The passenger list of that ship contains Peter Schumacher, son Peter, daughter Mary, cousin Sarah and daughters Frances & Gertrude. Peter had signed an agreement with Dirck Shipman of Krefeld before he left Germany, on August 16, 1685. It called for Peter to proceed to Pennsylvania and receive 200 acres from Herman Op den Graeff. He was to erect a dwelling on this land, which he apparently did. Peter died in Germantown in 1707 at 85 years of age. Peter Jr. married Margaret Op den Graeff on February 26, 1697. They had ten children, including Peter, Daniel, Isaac, John, Samuel and five daughters.
