1704-1709, Early Settlers to Skippack, PA
The German settlement at Skippack was an outgrowth from the Germantown (Krefeld) settlement, most of the early settlers being Mennonites. This settlement is in present-day Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County near the village of Evansburg. The original settlers of 1702 came earlier to Germantown (Hendrick Pannebecker, Johannes Kuster, Johannes Umstat, Klas Jansen, and Jan Krey). Those listed as coming later may have come directly from Germany to Skippack and are therefore listed here.
