    Biography

    • From GENEALOGY OF THE HACKENBERG FAMILY 1896, courtesy of Jessica Hackenberg:

      At an early age Johann Peter learned the trade of carpenter and joiner, and was taught by his father a profession, that of Civil Engineering. In 1834 he was the Anti-Masonic delegate to the New Berlin Convention. In 1823 he was appointed Justice of the Peace, which office he held until 1836, when he removed from Freeburg with his family to McEwensville, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, where later he conducted a general store. In 1836 he was appointed Supervisor of the West Branch of the Pennsylvania Canal, which position he filled for three years.

      He was largely engaged in Mercantile pursuits and filled the office of Justice of the Peace for several years during his residence in McEwensville. In 1839 he entered into partnership with John P. Schuyler as Builders and Contractors, and they built the bridge at Northumberland, PA across the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.

      In 1854, having sold his store to Levi Balliet, he removed with his family to White Pigeon, Michigan, where he engaged in the mercantile business, which he followed until his death, which occurred 16 Sept 1870.

      Anna Mary, his widow died at White Pigeon, Michigan, in the 92nd year of her age, leaving nine children, 55 grandchildren, 53 great grandchildren, and five great great grandchildren.
