Charles Whitmer, "Swiss Anabaptist Refugees from Canton Bern in the German Palatinate in 1671" in Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage, Vol. 24, nr. 2, pp2-18 (April 2001): About 700 Mennonite refugees fled their homes in Bern Canton to Germany, where they were taken in by other Swiss Mennonites from Zurich Canton. Lists of these Swiss refugees were sent to the Dutch Mennonite congregations in Amsterdam with an appeal for funds to support them. on the list was: Peter Gutt (Guth), 41, at Micheveldt in the Karlsrube district, with his wife, Barbara Graber, 37, and seven children from 8 weeks to 14 years.

Richard Davis lists Peter as family/person A1 at MennoSearch.com: Richard Davis lists the likely father as Christian Gutt, born 1605 (Family A). Peter Gutt was a Swiss Anabaptist refugee living at Michelfeld, Baden in April 1672, age 41. His wife was Barbara Graber, age 37. He had seven children with him, the oldest was 14 years and the youngest 8 weeks. He was given three beds and children's clothing for four. He signed a letter on 2 Feb 1672 as one of the Mennonite ministers on the west side of the Rhine. He was probably the Peter Gutt living at Michelfeld in the Kurpfalz in 1684 when his daughter Anna was married. His wife Barbara was probably from Uerkheim (or in the area) which was where the Graber family had their citizen rights. He was probably the father of Jacob, Anna, Peter, and Christian Gutt who lived in Germany.
