Where the Immigrants Went

Genealogy Tips by Jeannette Holland AustinBlue Ridge Mountains

Philadelphia was a port city for many immigrants during the early 18th century. The first propriety was to settle amongst others who spoke the same language or dialect. After wards, a stream of people from Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland and the German palatinate began their adventures by trailing the old Wagon Road southwestward into North Carolina and Virginia. Some of them were Quakers and left relatives in Philadelphia. For this reason, Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of Quakers should be searched just to make certain. For the example, the prolific Boone family from whom Daniel Boone descends, were Quakers, and many of these families went into the Carolinas and Kentucky. The Blue Ridge Mountains capture a certain fantasy of the trails which our ancestors explored. Both the Scotch and the Irish preferred the spectacular views of isolated charm. These rugged settlers brought the rifle and beaver caps into a wilderness terrain.
