Amishman Peter Leibundgutt/Livengood (d. 1826) kept an interesting financial journal of personal and business transactions between 1758 and 1824. A weaver, Peter is thought to be the first Amishman to go by Conestoga wagon across the Allegheny Mountains to settle in what is now Elk Lick, Somerset Co., Pa. This journal is transcribed here along with an introduction, a listing of Peter's descendants for three generations (Beachy, Breneisen, Fike, Forney, Haag, Hardman, Kepple, Miller, Saylor, and Yoder). (118pp. index. Masthof Press, 1991.)
