About Peter Mylin Bricker

GEDCOM Note

Peter Bricker, later to settle in Cocalico, Pennsylvania in 1732, was baptized Peter Bruegger on February 14, 1700 in the Reformed church of Frutigen, Switzerland, and was identified in the parish book there as the son of Peter Bruegger (not Jacob Bricker) and Margaretha Roesti (not Catherine Mylin).

Peter's first wife was Christina Gylgen, baptized in Schwarzenburg, Switzerland in 1702. She and Peter were married in Echery, Alsace on January 6, 1723. They had seven children, of which four survived childhood: Barbara, who seems to have passed away sometime before 1763; Elizabeth, who may have passed away before 1763; Christina, who passed away in 1804; and Peter, who also seems to have passed away in 1804. The children's mother Christina may have passed away the same year that son Peter was born, sometime between 1735 and 1737.

The elder Peter, the children's father, married his second wife Elizabeth within the next couple of years, as their first child, Christian, was born about 1739. Existing evidence suggests that Elizabeth was the widow of Jacob Lisley who, along with Elizabeth's parents Valentine and Christina Becker and Elizabeth herself, sailed to America with other Brethren in 1729 aboard the ship "Allen."

After son Christian's birth, Peter and Elizabeth had another seven children before Peter passed away in 1761: Catherine, born in 1743, Jacob, born in 1744, John, born in 1745, Veronica, born in 1748, Barbara, born in 1751, David born in 1755, and Elizabeth, possibly born soon after the passing of Peter Senior's older daughter Elizabeth by first wife Christina, in 1759 or 1760.
