Information on Robert Peoples

From post:

Nathaniel "Nathan" Peoples (1765-1851) of Chester & Later Clearfield County, PA Posted by: Rick Gleason (ID *****5757) Date: February 24, 2011 at 11:38:25 of 1020

Nathaniel is my fourth great-grandfather. My records indicate he was born in Chester County, PA 7 May 1765 and died 15 May 1851 in Clearfield County, PA. He was married to Catherine Larue in 1794 in Lancaster County, PA. To this marriage were born Elizabeth (1796-1872) (my third great-grandmother), Samuel (1798), George (1805) and Nathan B (1816).

The elder Nathan apparently was also married to a Sarah (10 Sep 1768- 26 Apr 1849). The two of them are buried at Luthersburg Union Cemetery in Luthersburg, Clearfield County, PA.

My information also indicates Nathan's father was American immigrant Robert Peoples born about 1746 in Ireland. Robert's father was Nathan who was born in Ireland but died in Cumberland County, PA. [Source:]
