More information

According to the official Studebaker history published in 1918, three German men named Studebecker or Staudenbecker —Peter (aged 38), Clement (36), and Henry (28)—sailed on the ship Harle from Rotterdam, Holland, and disembarked at Philadelphia on September 1, 1736.:p.11 They had bought their tickets in Krefeld, Germany. Two of the men were accompanied by their wives. They moved on from Philadelphia to Germantown and, sixty-two years later, persons named Studebaker were recorded as paying taxes in York County, and were described as "blacksmiths and woodworkers".:p.3 These were Peter Studebaker (1747–1812) —probably a son of the immigrant Clement Studebecker (1700–1762) and his wife Anna Catherine—and his son Peter Studebaker Jr.:p.11



In Albert Russel Erskine's official history, Peter Studebaker is reported to be the father of John [Clement] Studebaker and thus grandfather of the five Studebaker brothers of South Bend, Indiana.:p.13 However, this conflicts with a genealogy produced later, in which John's father is identified as Clement Studebaker (1758–1840). In any event, John Studebaker (1799–1877) moved to Ohio in 1835:p228 with his wife Rebecca (née Mohler) (1802–1887)—and taught his five sons to make wagons. They all went into that business as it grew to gigantic proportions with the country.
