Do you know if Peter had a son Adam? I found an Adam Weinant in Lancaster Co. Pa. in 1794 who married Catherine Bombach, widow of George. She had two small children at the time. Rebecca and John. I have seen the name also spelled Weinant. Wynant and wyant and other variants. Do you have any info on Adam? Anything will be appreciated.
Thank you

I have an ancestory Samuel Gay who's dau. Mary Gay married Jacob M. Wyantin 1798 in Rockingham Co.
Another dau Keaty married William Dunavan about the same
