Notes for Mathias Ruble: [Aug16#19675.FTW]
This is only an assumption. All records indicate that Mathias was born in Bavaria, Germany and that Peter was born in York County, Pennsylvania.............so I have altered the Birth Date of Peter Jr. to be after (AFTER) 1744. For if we are sure that Mathias was born in Bavaria, then Peter Jr., was born in York County, Pennsylvania..........it is logical to assume that his (Peter Jrs) birthdate would be after Mathias Birthdate of 12/9/1744. Therefore After 1744, seems logical. The question arises as to the birthdate of Abraham, would he have been a disabled child that was brought to America along with his parents??, and Christian, assumed to be the youngest son, would have been born in York County, and stayed on the homestead, taken care of his parents, inherited the property, which was later reverted to Peter Jr. and Mathias. There is no proof that Mathias & Peter Jr. were twins. Therefore, it seems illogical to keep both birthdates as 1744. Also, Mathias Tombstone indicates that he died (Btn: 2 dates, in 1817), since I have tramped the homestead and see these dates, I will not dispute the YEAR!!!!! So therefore, Mathias would have been 73 years old at his death. If you take the death date of Peter Jr. as 1837.......that, assuming his birthdate after/around 1744.........would have made him 93 years old (highly unlikely), in those days!!!!!!!!!!! Peter Jr., must have been born much later in the 1700s. (LHR 8/10/2001)
