Elizabeth Hill's Cleaver family genealogy. On June 10, 1683, Francis Daniel Pastorius of Somerhausen, Germany, one of the Frankfort Company, sailed from London, reaching Philadelphia on August 20. He was the founder of a colony afterwards called Germantown.
On June 10 (or 11), 1683, Govert Remke, Lenard Arets, Peter Klever (or Kleber), and Jacob Van Bebber, a baker, all Quakers of Crefeldt on the Rhine River who had purchased 1,000 acres of land each from William Penn, went to Rotterdam this day with others (33 in all), then to London, and sailed for America July 24, 1683, in the ship "Concord."
 They settled on the land they bought from Penn, and other people spoke of the place as "A German Town." Today Germantown is part of the City of Philadelphia--the six miles of land between Penn's village and this German settlement is now all solid city. During the year 1683, the Friends held their first meeting at the house of man by the name of Kunder in the German colony.
 The first Friends' Meeting House in Germantown was built in 1686. In 1685, Peter Schumacher, of a leading family of Kreisheim, came over and settled in the German colony. In 1691, the Germantown people were "naturalized" in the spelling of the names, so that Klever was changed to Clever, and afterwards became Cleaver; Schumacher became Shoemaker.
