Bruecker, Peter a German Reformed minister, was born at Dusseldorf in Germany, and came to America in 1849 or 1850. He took a theological course at Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, and left soon after for the West. He was licensed to preach and ordained by the Tiffin Classis, Synod of Ohio, in 1852. About the same time he took charge of a German congregation in Sandusky, where he labored about two years, when, January 16, 1854, he died. See Harbaugh, Fathers of the Germ. Ref. Church, 4:498.
