  • Notes 
    • The lists recording the family's arrival in Philadelphia are conflicted.

      In vol. 1, R.B.Strassburger & Wm.J.Hinke, PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN PIONEERS, List 10A, pp. 27-29 (1934), one finds a list for the ship Allen, which arrived in Philadelphia on 11 Sep 1729; the list includes at p. 27, "Johannes Prunder, sick" and his father "Joseph Prunder"; at p. 28, as "under fifteen," his brother "John Henderick Prunder"; and at p. 29, a female passenger, his mother, "Caterina Lisbet Prunder". There is no mention of siblings Anna, Gabriel, Valentin, Maria or Elias.

      Both List 10 B, Ibid, p. 29, and List 10C, p. 30, record his father's name as "Joseph Bruner."

      In 1750 "John Brunner" was involved in a Frederick County court case. He sued one "Richard Smith, innholder of Fredrick [sic] Co. to appear in November 1750 Court to answer to the complaint of John Brunner, to whom Smith owed money." Frederick County Court Records, 1750 [ Maryland Archives C773-1 1/41/6/39 and C773-2 1/41/6/40 ], Stefanie R. Shaffer, INHABITANTS OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, 1750-1790, vol. 1, p. 27 (2001).
