About Johannes Kuster

"Johannes Küster or Koster, a son of Paul and Gertrude (Streyper) Küster, came with his parents from Crefeld, Germany, to America probably about 1685; and his name is given in a list of the thirty-four first inhabitants of Germantown, Pennsylvania, naturalized by the Deputy Governor the third month and 7th day, 1691, and is marked as a Quaker (Manuscript Book about Germantown in Pennsylvania Historical Society). The records show he was living at Bristol in 1693, and that he purchased some land at Skippack, in 1704, where he perhaps located for a while, though he doubtless resided at Germantown during the other years subsequent to his coming to America and prior to his death."
