Parents

Family: Maria Anna VanderLoop (b. August 13, 1839, d. March 26, 1918)

Biography

  • Birth: Peter Johannes Peters was born on November 11, 1832 in Venraij, Limburg, Netherlands.
  • Marriage: He and Maria Anna VanderLoop were married on October 14, 1861 in St Francis Church, Hollandtown, Wisconsin.
  • Death: Peter Johannes Peters died on November 16, 1923, at age 91, in Green Bay, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Burial: He was buried in St Francis Cemetery, Hollandtown, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Peter Johannes Peters, a native of the province of Limburg, Holland, arrived in New York City in the spring of 1856. He was then twenty-three years of age. His son, Fr. F. J. Peters, found old church records in Holland showing that a grandmother of Peters was named Bridget Mahan of Irish ancestry. The name Peters is of German origin.
    The ship in which he came was also a sailing vessel. It took 56 days to cross the Atlantic. Westerly winds retarded its process some days passing in which it advanced no more than one mile. Consequently, food supplies went down to a small amount of corn meal and salt pork. The supply of drinking water did not last to the end of the voyage.
    On leaving Holland, Peter weighed 180 pounds, but was so weak on arriving that he had to be helped from the ship. Never again would he eat anything made of corn meal.
    Shortly after landing, he left New York to join the Dutch colony in Wisconsin. A brother, Albert Peters, a sister, Gertrude, and two half-brothers, Anton and George Goemans came later.
    While working in the pineries or lumber camps of northern Wisconsin, Peter met Willem Van der Loop. On accompanying Willem to his home at Hollandtown, he met Willem’s sister Maria-Anna, who was to be his wife for 57 years. After their marriage in 1861, Peter and Maria-Anna moved into the brick house built by her father, and took over the management of his farm. Oxen were then used as power and linch-pin wagons with wheels made of sections of large white oak logs were the only vehicles.
    Earlier Peter had walked 25 miles to Green Bay, often carrying home a sack of flour on his shoulders.
    Wandering Indians were occasional visitors and bears were a menace to livestock. Hearing a commotion in the barnyard one day, Maria-Anna discovered a bear carrying off a small pig. She seized a pitchfork and gave chase. Bruin soon dropped the pig, and made off into the woods.
    Some years later, a large two-story frame house, complete with basement, woodshed, and summer kitchen, was built on a new farm in Dundas, a few miles west.
    On this farm an apple orchard was grown, and with a large garden, field crops, cattle, sheep and hogs, furnished most of the food and clothing used by the large and growing family. The woods yielded fuel, hazel and hickory nuts, wild blackberries and strawberries. May apples and nut hulls for dying the yarn made on the farm.
    A large spinning wheel, which is still in the family, was used to spin miles of yarn. The wool was sheared from their own sheep, and was washed, carded and dyed in the home. The Peters boys were taught to help in this work, and often knit their own socks and suspenders while hearding cattle and sheep in the woods. No doubt they often laid aside these tasks to follow a red squirrel or to try their marksmanship with their homemade slingshots.
    A brick schoolhouse had been built adjoining the church which was in charge by Catholic sisters.
    Time passed, the nine Peters sons, (one died in infancy) and their sister grew to adulthood. The sons did farm work, earning extra money by working in cheese and box factories, and in the long winters in the lumber camps.
  • Immigration: He immigrated in 1856.
