(Research):As a young man, Peter Speers went to London to take ship to America where some of his cousins had migrated. While waiting for passage at the dock, he was caught by the "Press Gang" and forced into the British Army. His first opportunity to desert came when the army went into France. Being a Protestant, he was able to lose himself among the persecuted Huguenots who befriended him. Peter joined the French Huguenots and became associated with the Reasoner and Froman families in France and Germany. Later in America, descendants of the three families intermarried. Peter married a French Protestant girl in France.
