I believe he is John Peter Bruce....coming from North Carolina to Muhlenberg along with Eleanor Bennett and her father Samuel Bennett. This was during the great movement from North Carolina to Kentucky in 1790. Thus he was born in NC and died in Muhlenberg.... I have tracked his ancestors to Mass early colonies and then to Scotland.....I hope this helps.... I am still working on him....My DNA profile shows we came from uk and Ireland to North Carolina and up to Kentucky....
