  • 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 «i»Allen«/i», which arrived in Philadelphia on 11 Sep 1729; the list includes at p. 27, "Joseph Prunder" and "Johannes Prunder, sick"; at p. 28, as "under fifteen," "John Henderick Prunder"; and at p. 29, female passenger "Caterina Lisbet Prunder". There is no mention of Anna, Gabriel, Valentin, Maria or Elias.

      List 10B, «i»Ibid«/i», p. 29, states the father's name as "Joseph Bruner" [sic]; he is again mentioned in List 10C, p. 30, as "Joseph Bruner."
