1700-1726, Miscellaneous Other Early PA Emigrants

Several German families apparently emigrated to Pennsylvania prior to 1727 when the Strassburger/Hinke passenger lists start. This list is a first attempt to identify these emigrants and establish their approximate date of arrival in the New World. It is hoped with time that this list will grow and be improved upon, eventually identifying unpublished passenger list sources and other materials. Information could be added here by studying German settlements besides Germantown and Skippack which were settled prior to 1727. To begin with, this will be a fairly incomplete list.
