Q. Johann Fridrick Garber arrived at Philadelphia Sept. 25, 1751 on the ship Phoenix from Rotterdam via Portsmouth, England. This may be Friedrich Keiber, miller of Lowrsolfort (Lower Salford) Twp., Montgomery Co., whose Oct. 3, 1792 will  named his executors Abraham Geries and Heinrich Schweitzer and directed that his "small estate be given to the poor people."
