My GGG Grandfather, Peter Will, is supposed to
have been born in Schuylkill Co 25 Mar 1790, to Daniel Will and Maria Magdalena Lora. Their
other children were all born in Berks Co, so I don't know if he was just in Schuykill Co when Peter
was born, or if they actually lived there. Daniel & wife died in Somerset Co. Peter died 29 Aug
1860 in Murphysboro, Jackson, IL.
