Hans Peter Scholl 1627 - at least 1667

Hans Peter Scholl may be a child of Joss Scholl and Barbara Dietrich. The death record for Anna Margaretha daughter of Hans Peter Scholl b 3 Nov 1654 - 14 April 1661, identifies her as the Tailor's daughter. However on the 19 Nov 1654 Anna Barbara, daughter of Hanß Reinhardt Metzger was baptised and Peter Scholl was a baptismal sponsor and identified as a carpenter or joiner in another document. Since most of Peter's children have Hanß Reinhardt as baptismal sponsors there appears to be a good case for the latter profession. One the other hand in 14 April 1661 Anna Margaretha Hans Peter Scholl, the Tailor's (Schneider), 6 years old daughter buried in the ground Christianly. It is difficult to know, maybe he was both a carpenter and a tailor. 
Note: Peter Scholl may be the child of Joss Scholl because he is born around the same time as Joss's other possible children and because he is born within a few years of Joss.

Hans Peter had at least five children in the early Graben records that are verified. In three of the records below show Peter's wife as Margaretha. On the 30 April [1667], Hanß Peter Scholl, in the 40th year of his age died as seen in the final record on this page. If that is the case Joss Scholl was 17 years old at the time and Barbara would be 13 years old at the time of his first child's birth, which could be. Maybe a better case could be made for his birth in 1632 when Joss was 22 and Barbara Dietrich was 18.
Why are baptismal sponsors important?
When you see a series of children with the same sponsor it tells you they may well be related. I view this as proof you are matching the right parents with the right children. For instance Hanß Reinhard Mezger shows up in five documents below. Also on the 19th November 1654 Peter Scholl is the baptismal sponsor for  Anna Barbara Mezger who's father is none other than Hanß Reinhard Mezger. I think this is proof positive Peter Scholl and Reinhard Mezger were best friends!

Hans Petter Scholl b 12 Sep 1652 film 102078348 page 143

Translation Robert Seal:
There appears to be four baptismal sponsors which I have shown below on four separate lines in case another volunteer can help out with this difficult record:
Parents are recorded in the left margin: Hanß Petter Scholl and Margretha.
I have M. Mathaeiaß Meÿermaister, pastor of "Speck" [Spöck] and "Staffert" [Staffort], baptized a child, his name Hanß Petter. Baptismal sponsors:
Petter Keller?, son of Martin Keller?;
Hanß _______ "des Zimmermanns Sohn";
_______ Margretha _________ daughter;
and Dorothea ________ "Zimmermanns Dochter [Tochter means daughter]".
on the 12th of September [1652].
Robert Seal Comment: I don't know what the "M." stands for before the pastor's name but it appears in all of the records on this page. 
Ulrich Neitzel: To add on Robert's remark:
"Magister" = M. in this context means the lower university degree (corresponding to today's Master of...). For illustration see the list below: two people (both clergyman) have the title Magister, one (a physician) has the title Doctor (Dr.). Note also that the (Latin) titles are set with Latin typeface in contrast to the normal Fraktur.

By the way, the abbreviation for a doctor of theology in old documents is usually D., not Dr.
Ulrich Neitzel:it remains difficult to squeeze out more. Here my transcription (additions to Robert' translation in bold):
habe ich M. Mathaeiaß Meyermaister Pfr. von Speck u: Staffert ein Kind getaufft [sein] namm Hanß Petter. Comp. Petter Keller, Martin Kellers Sohn, Hanßreinharth ___ . deß Zimmermans Sohn, und? Margaretha h__ Heyllers Dochter und? Dorothea deß Endris?_ Zimmermans Dochter. d 12 SeptemberEnglish version of above:

I have M. Mathaeiaß Meyermaister Pfr. von Speck u: Staffert a child baptized [his] namm Hanß Petter. Comp. Petter Keller, Martin Keller's son, Hanßreinharth ___ . deß Zimmerman's son, and? Margaretha h__ Heyller's daughter and? Dorothea deß Endris?_ Zimmerman's daughter. d 12 September Also other children of Hans Petter Scholl have a sponsor with the name Hans Reinhard; unclear to me if this can be the same person.
Robert Seal: Follow-up on the "M.":
In a recent response on another of your questions, @Ulrich Neitzel interpreted the "M." before a pastor's name as the word "Magister". So it's possible the "M." in this record means the same.

Thode, German-English Genealogical Dictionary, defines "Magister" as: master; teacher. In addition I found one online source that said "Magister" is a form of address appropriate for a doctor of theology.

Anna Dorothea Scholl baptized 10 Aug 1657,  film 102078348 page 147

Child: Anna Dorothea.
Parents: Hanß Peter Scholl and Anna Margaretha.
Baptismal sponsors: Hanß Reinhard Mezger and his wife; Anna Dorothea Ruffin and Hanß Balthasar Hoffmann, both still single.
Comment: The phrasing for the baptismal sponsors was a little confusing. Was Hanß Reinhard Mezger's wife Anna Dorothea Ruffin or was his wife not named in the record? Given the phrase at the end "both still single" I decided there were four baptismal sponsor: 
(1) Hanß Reinhard Mezger; 
(2) his wife (unnamed); 
(3) Anna Dorothea Ruffin; and 
(4) Hanß Balthasar Hoffmann. 
Note: Then the phrase "both still single" would refer to sponsors (3) and (4) only.
Note:Anna Dorothea Scholl baptized 10 Aug 1657, Hans Peter father, witnesses: Anna Margaretha mother, And Dorothea was baptized the 10 August 1657
