(1712-1796)

This pioneer settler of Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County, arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam aboard the ship Mortonhouse in 1729. He and his wife Mary lived for a time near Hagerstown, Maryland and after the Braddock and Forbes expeditions of 1755 and 1758, they established a tomahawk claim to 400 acres of land at the mouth of the Youghiogheny River, later recognized by Pennsylvania. He served as a Ranger during the Pontiac Indian War of 1763 and at his death in 1796 was buried in the Weddell Cemetery overlooking the Youghiogheny River.
