Herbert Apgar : Family Sheet

Birth:       1735 Niederdreis, (Rheinland-Pfalz), Germany
Christened:       as ‘Johannes Petrus’ at the parish Reformed church in Puderbach
Gender:       Male
A/K/A:       Hans Peter Apgard
Died:       1792 Tewksbury Township, Hunterdon County, NJ
Notes:       John Peter was also known as Hans Peter Apgard. He has been mentioned occasionally in early church records, and in land deed descriptions. His own land purchases have not been found on record. This could be either that he did not have these put on record, or the purchases were made before 1785, which is the earliest records of land acquisitions kept in the Hall of Records in Hunterdon County, NJ. Hans Peter did own land as his land holdings were used to enable proper descriptions of adjacent properties. Judging by these references, Hans Peter lived in Cokesbury, not far from Apgars Corners. He is also mentioned in the early days of the Potterstown Church, and later in the Lebanon Reformed Church, Lebanon, NJ.
