About Peter Ikard, Sr.

"Peder Eiger was about 40 years old when he came to America with sons Peder Jr. and Chirstian and a friend Paulus Anthoni. They came from Germany where the Rhine separates Germany from France, floating down the Rhine and stopping every few miles at check points to pay a boundry of taxes and got to Brittian. They stayed there 3 to 4 months until they got passage to America on the English ship, Lydia, arriving September 29, 1741, from Dover, England to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. many Germans settled in Philadelphia area, but most of the younger men moved on to the colonies where they could more easily acquire land. Simon Haas was a leader of a group of these Pennsylvania German settlers who moved to Catawba County, North Carolina in 1749 and Peder Eiger, Peder Eiger Jr. and Paulua Anthoni were listed among those who went with him. Peder Jr's son, Lauronz, married Simon Haas' daugther, Christine. Peder Jr.'s son, Phillip, married Paulus Anthoni's daugher, Polly. (Paulus changed his mane to Paul Anthony)."
