Fifty-four Palatines and Swiss, who with their families, made a total of one hundred seventy-six persons.

Regarding the history of this colony see History of the Goshenhoppen Reformed Charge, pp. 96-130. The leader of the colony was the Rev. Maurice Goetschy, who died on his arrival in Philadelphia. His place was taken by his son, John Henry Goetschy. The business manager of the colony was John Conrad Wirtz (Wuertz), the brother-in-law of John Henry Goetschy. Wirtz was at first a schoolteacher, but from 1742-1763 officiated as pastor in numerous German and Dutch Reformed churches.
