The Descendants of Peter PIPER (No kidding!)

Peter PIPER was born in 1770 in Pennsylvania. He was the son of Johann Adam PFEIFFER and Verena Elizabeth ZOLLINGER. Both his mother and father's families were of German ancestry. His full name was Johann Peter PIPER, but he was called "Peter". Peter PIPER married Catherine CARNS, daughter of Nicholas CARNES, in 1794. They had 13 children, all born in Pennsylvania. Little is known about the children, except for William PIPER, the seventh child, and George PIPER, the ninth child.

Records do indicate that Peter PIPER was a farmer, though we don't know if he grew and pickled peppers.
