My family came to the US (appears to be from Germany/Bavaria before the US Revolution) and the name has changed with every census and every move. This was my brick wall until I found that information. Now it is like a burst dam and I am just trying to put everyone in their place. There is also a Becker DNA project going on that I am trying to find a male Pegher to do for me.

The original name was Becher (or Becker or Pecher). As often happened with German names, the B became a P in some census reports and now some are Pecher and in some census reports still Becher. Then 2 brothers, Simon and David (born abt 1807) moved from Conewago, Adams Co, PA to Wexford area,outside Pittsburgh PA and the names I find for the same family members are Becker, Becher, Pecher, Pecker, Paher, Puher, and finally Pegher.

I am descended from the brother David and Martha Becher (my ggg grandparents) through their son, Simon Pegher.

If you are from the same line, you should begin looking in the Adams Co. PA area and/or Becher and Becker message boards.

I have this info that I found posted a while back and have not worked on yet but am pretty sure this is from my line too.
Note the cousins names are John Pecher and John Becher:

Surnames: Pecher
My name is David Pecher, and I am a first-generation Pecher in the USA. My father's name was Jaroslav Pecher, and he immigrated to the USA in 1950 from Plzen, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic). All of my family on my father's side still live there, although the last spelling of the last name has changed. In Czech Republic, my family uses the Czech-version spelling Pechr, not the German-version of Pecher.

My name is Matthew Pegher, Son of David, son of John Francis, from Pittsburgh. Yes our name may have been Pecher, Becher, Becker. We have been able to follow back to Simon (there are a few) and have been trying to look back farther. You can reach me at mpegher@yahoo.com.
