Generation No. 4

4. BERNHARD KUDER (ADAM3, HANS JAKOB2, PHILLIPP1) was born Abt. 1729 in Neckargartach, Wurttemberg, Germany, and died Abt. 1782 in Probably Northampton County, Pennsylvania. He married ANNA MARIA HOFFMAN November 07, 1764 in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She died Abt. 1811 in Wythe County, Virginia.

Notes for BERNHARD KUDER: Bernhard's name on the baptismal record is given as Hans Bernhart Kuder.

"At the age of 19, eleven years after his brother Hans Peter emigrated to America, Bernhard also set out for America, arriving in Philadelphia 16 Sep 1748 on the ship Patience from Rotterdam via Cowes, England..

"Bernhard served as a wagon master in the Revolutionary War, and according to unconfirmed family lore was wounded either in the Battle of Brandywine, 11 Sep 1777, or in the Battle of Germantown which occurred less than a month later on 4 Oct 1777. He died, supposedly as a result of these injuries, on an unreported date which could not have been until 1781/82 or later in view of the birth date (24 Mar 1782) of his last child.

"After Bernhard died, his wife Anna Maria and their last four children moved about 1782/83 to Wytheville, Wythe Co., in southwestern Virginia. It was at about this time that the family name was changed from Kuder or Kuter to Cooter to avoid pronunciations such as "cutter'. In Wythe Co. Bernhard's widow Anna Maria (name anglicized to MARY) married John Bishop of Virginia, and they had a son, John Bishop Jr., who was born about 1802. John Sr. died Jan/Feb 1804 in Wythe Co. In 1810 Anna Maria was living in the home of her son Philip Cooter; according to family tradition she died in Wythe Co. at the age of 108. The date of her death is not known but was probably about 1811."
