Peter Kolb (Petrus Petter): elder of the Kriegsheim Mennonite congregation in the Palatinate, Germany in the first half of the 18th century; born in 1671 in Wolfsheim, Pfalz, the eldest son of Dielman Kolb (28 Jan 1648, Wolfsheim, Baden - 13 Oct 1712, Manheim, Baden) and Agnes (Schumacker) Kolb (1652, Kresheim, Pfalz - 1705). He died between 1726 and 1727 in Mannheim.

In 1709 he visited the Netherlands; presumably he was the confidential agent of the Dutch Mennonite Committee of Foreign Needs of Amsterdam. In 1731 he was invited to give information to the Amsterdam Committee concerning the needs of the congregations in the Palatinate.
