MOVED TO THE
TULPEHOCKEN VALLEY IN PENNSYLVANIA
The first list given below (I) is a compilation of two documents. The fifteen names followed by asterisks are the first settlers who arrived in that region before May 13, 1723. These names are signed to a petition given in Colonial Records of Pennsylvania, III, 323. The other names in the list are taken from a petition or a road from Olney to Tulpehocken presented to the court of Quarter Sessions at Philadelphia in September, 1727. Professor William T. Hinke of Auburn Seminary, Auburn, New York, deserves credit for his fine work identifying these names.
The second list (II) was compiled by Mr. C. Lindemuth, now deceased, from land deeds and land patents and published in The Pennsylvania German (Lebanon, Pennsylvania, 1904), V, 191. Although the map drawn up by Mr. Lindemuth, locating the patens, was dated by him "1723," it obviously should be of some later date, certainly after 1728.
