Research Notes:

From Floyd's History Of Northumberland County:

FETTEROLF.  The  Fetterolf  (Federolf, Fetherolf) family, two of 

whose representatives in Upper Mahanoy township, Northumberland county, 
are Edward and Daniel Fetterolf, brothers, is of Dutch origin, its 
founder in this country, Peter Federolf, having been a native of 
Wachbach, Holland, born in 1699. In 1729 or 1730 he married Anna Maria 
Rothermel, only daughter and eldest of the six children of Johannes and 
Sabilla (Zimmerman) Rothermel. In 1730 Peter Federolf and his wife 
accompanied his father-in-law to America, the voyage being made in the 
"Thistle," and about 1732 he and his wife and one of her brothers, 
Leornard  Rothermel, located in Hereford township Berks Co., Pa., where 
Peter Federolf acquired large acreage of what has become valuable 
farmland, upon which he passed the remainder of his life, dying there. 
His property was partly in Hereford township and partly in Longswamp 
township and he made his home near what is now Seisholtzville, near the 
line of Lehigh county.  Leonard Rothermel located in Perry township, 
Berks county, before the Revolution, and there died at an advanced age, 
leaving a large family.
Peter Federolf was a man of more than ordinary importance in his 
locality, not only because he was a large land owner, but because his 
successful management of his own affairs showed him entitled influence 
and leadership in the conduct of such matters as affected the general 
welfare. He reared a family of seven children, who became connected by 
marriage with other substantial old families in the county, and all of 
whom are mentioned in his last will and testament (on record in the 
court house at Reading, Will Book B), made July 1784, and probated Sept. 
16, 1784, showing that he died during the summer of that year.  The 
witnesses to the will were Henry Bortz and Christopher Schultz, the 
executors Paul Groscup, of Rockland township, who was the testator's 
true and trusty friend (he was the ancestor of Judge Peter Grosscup, the 
Federal jurist of Chicago), Jacob Fetherolf, the eldest son, and 
Christopher Bittenbender, blacksmith, a son-in-law.  In later years this 
Christopher Bittenbender obtained the original Federolf homestead, on 
which is located the Federolf private burial ground, where the emigrant 
ancestor, Peter, is buried, as well as Christopher Bittenbender his 
wife, and some of their children.  The will sets forth that the son 
Jacob was to have three hundred acres of land; the son-in-law, 
Christopher Bittenbender, one hundred acres of land; the six children of 
the son Peter, who predeceased his father, three hundred pounds of money 
(divided between them); that the son Philip, deceased, left one 
daughter; that the daughter Catharine was twice married, first to John 
Siegfried and after his death to Abraham Zimmerman; that the daughter 
Barbara married a Hehn (name now spelled Hain); the daughter Magdalena 
married Christopher Bittenbender, who was a blacksmith and farmer, and 
who as previously noted eventually acquired the old homestead of Peter 
Federolf, which remained in the Bittenbender name until 1908. About 1840 
a valuable find of iron ore was discovered on this property,  and some 
of the Bittenbenders became wealthy thereby, the ore mines being worked 
until the early eighties.
Jacob Fetherolf was born Feb. 16, 1762, and died April 6, 1823; he 
is buried at Wessnersville,  Berks Co., Pa. His wife Catharine, born May 
12, 1760, died Jan. 10, 1849.  (There was a Jacob Fetherolf, son of 
Peter, who died in Albany township in 1823, and whose will is on record 
in Will Book 5, page 412. He left sons John and Peter.)

The will of a Peter Fetherolf of Berks county who died in 1840 is 
also on record (Will Book 8, page 242).  He died without sons, and John 
S. Kistler and William Mosser were the executors

Two Jacobs, born 20 years apart, both die in 1823, both the son of  Peter?

This would be the Peter that died unmarried?
