Peter Felder
Son of John Henry Felder

Peter Felder son of John Henry and Mary Elizabeth Felder was born 2 April, 1759 in Orangeburg District, South Carolina. He died 12 May, 1848 in either in Amite or Pike Co. Mississippi.

Peter married Elizabeth Lowe, born 7 May, 1759 in Barnwell District, South Carolina. She died in Mississippi.

It appears that Peter was the only child of John Henry Felder that came to Mississippi. He may have come with the Lowe's, his wife's family. A nephew, David Felder a single person came in 1811. There is no mention that Peter and his family traveled with the nephew.

Mary Elizabeth the oldest daughter married in 1802 in South Carolina. She along with her husband, Henry Dickerson came westward to the Mississippi Territory. It is possible that their move inspired Peter and his family to move with the daughter and husband.
