I am looking for information about one Peter Schaefer who was born in Turku, earned the Masters Degree from Turku (Abo?) Akademi, spent time in
the colony and was working with the Jersey Swede Finns. He returned to Finland in 1700 and died in prison in Gefle, Sweden having been imprisoned for his beliefs.
Any information greatly appreciated.
