    Name: Peter Henry SPEERS
    * Sex: M
    * Birth: 1725 in Brandenburg,Germany
    * Death: 25 NOV 1782 in Rostraver Twp, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania
    * Note:

    After arriving in America, Peter settled in Augusta, Co., Virginia
    until 1751-52, then moved up to Frederick Co., Virginia. Henry and
    George F. Spears explored the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, possibly
    together, where George remained and established the "Spears" family
    of Rockingham County. Henry went to Maryland then later established
    the "Speers" family in Pennsylvania.

    Henry married Regina Froman and settled on farm known as Gibstoton,
    on the Mon River, below Belle Vernon.

    (Henry Speers and his wife took up residence on the east bank of the
    Monogahela River in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, in 1764. He called
    his home "Summer House." He died circa 1782, supposedly from a kick
    to the head by a horse. His wife, Regina was taxed in 1783 for 250
    acres of land, stock and nine slaves. Regina and sons would be found
    later in Washington County, Pennsylvania, at Speers Borough, a small
    community south of Donora on the Monogahela River. It is felt that
    the Speers family lived in the same general area as the "colony"
    where the early Crist family lived.

    Henry was active in community affairs - occasionally busy with one
    project or another for the county. He was appointed a captain of the
    militia in August of 1757.

    Abraham Frye and family located on the opposite side of the river. He
    owned land from Maple Creek on the outskirts of Charleroi, to Pigeon
    Creek in Monongahela, from the Mon River, to where Fallowfield
    township school now stands, except for the Grant and Wickerham Farms,
    near what is now Fisher Heights. They came here from their homes in a
    place 18 miles south of Winchester, Virginia.

    The Speers and the Fryes were intimately associated in everything
    that pertained to each others comfort, and this fact, in these days
    of trial and danger, was no small affair. In going from place to
    place or in the field, these settlers were compelled for personal
    safety to carry firearms so as to meet the attacks of the Indians.
