(1) Dea. Jacob Bearder (1768 – 1838) & Elizabeth Trimmer (1769 – 1832)
Actually, Jacob Bearder should be considered the second generation, as his father Andrew Bearder (1741-1829) and mother Margaret Shepherd (c.1720-1800) were the ones to emigrate to New Jersey from Germany. Margaret came as the wife of a Mr. Shafer, who died at sea. Her three sons were all under ten at the time. Shortly after arriving, Margaret married George Henry Wambaugh, who had also immigrated from Germany, perhaps on the same ship as Andrew and Margaret.
