Who is Johann Peter Ricker? He was born 8 Dec 1751 in Philadelphia Co. PA to Andreas and Elisabeth. He was baptized in the Lutheran Church at New Hanover on 20 Jan 1752. This church was later in Montgomery Co. PA. I am not sure where it is today. The sponsors were John Peter Fertig and wife.

An Andrus appears on the 1790 census for Northampton Co. Co. PA. Could he be a brother to Peter and a son of Andreas? Our Peter served in the militia in 1781 from Northampton Co. Might this be our Peter Ricker of Greene Co. TN?
