My take on this Peter Brubaker, given his death date and place, is that he
was the grandson of Peter Brubaker (H-1), head of the H-Line (and the
derivative lines J-1, J-2, K, L, and M of Brubakers) of Franklin County, PA.
The grandfather, Peter Brubacher, was born out of wedlock in Ibersheim,
Germany, and therefore is not Brubaker by blood (unless there was incest
involved). His mother was Maria and she married Abraham Hackman who became
Peter Brubaker's stepfather.

Many of the Franklin County, PA, Brubakers became Brethren, and their
numbers are second only to the thousands of Brubakers of the V-Line headed
by John Brubaker (c1750-c1825). The V in the V-Line stands for Virginia
because that is where many (including the Brethren Encyclopedia) think that
John and Anna Meyer Brubaker's family became Brethren. The truth is,
however, that they became Brethren in Pennsylvania in 1774 when they married
in Bethel Township, Lancaster County (now Lebanon and Berks). Anna's
father, Jacob Meyer, was a minister in the Little Swatara Congregation. His
children married into several of the leading Brethren families in the area
north of present-day Lancaster County.

It appears to me that this Peter Brubaker b. Apr 1809 in Lancaster Co, PA
may have been son of David Brubaker b. 1763 and Elizabeth Ober b. 1780, and
who married Mary Strickler.  (LDS files)
Confirmation of this would be welcome.
