Your Gr-Gr-Gr Grandfather was Johann Peter Branstetter who was born in 1764 on the Ship Sarah or in Philadelphia. I am trying to find information on his brother Johann Friedrich, born 1755 in Froeschen, Germany, mainly I'd like the original ship list of the Sarah and information about the history of the family right after they arrived. The reason is because I am descended from a Frederick Branstetter, born about 1755 according to my family bible and married to Magdalena. I have seen people on the internet say this is the same person as Johann Friedrich, but I haven't seen any records to show this. I'm just trying to make the connection between them and I thought you might know something about where I could look for this informaion.

If so, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
