Peter Grubb (1702 - 1754) married Martha Bates in 1732 and had 2 children before she died in 1740. A mason by trade, Peter founded the historic Cornwall or Grubb’s iron works in Lebanon County, Pa. He was remarried in 1742 to Hannah Mendenhall at the Concord Quaker Meeting. In addition to the iron works, he also owned extensive property and died in Wilmington. Both of his sons, Curtis and Peter Jr. were Colonels in the Revolution, and his 2nd great grandson was Civil War General Edward Burd Grubb Jr. of Burlington County, New Jersey, later unsuccessful republican candidate for Governor in 1889 and U.S. Envoy to Spain in 1890 during the Harrison Administration. Edward’s brother was Isaac Parker Grubb, a Union soldier who died at the Battle of Fredericksburg in 1864.
