  1 Jan 1710 Emigration    Germany            "Palatines" begin the trek down the Rhine where they shipped to
                                              Holland, then to England, then on to New York. Took 5 months and a
                                              few days. From there they went up the Hudson River to East and West
                                              Camps and wintered there in ground and log huts.
13 June 1710               "In Council"       Reported that the ship Lyon arrived at Port having brought a
                                              considerable number of Palatines. As there were many contagious
                                              diseases among them they ordered that they be landed with their goods
                                              at Nutten Island.
    ?? 1710                Livingston Manor   About 1200 German Palatines where brought to Livingston Manor as
                           (Germantown)       indentured servants of England's Queen Anne to make tar from the pine
                                              trees. The venture failed and they were set free in 1712.

                                              tents and arms are. She was cast away on the East end of Long Island
                                              on the 7th. of July; the men are safe but our goods much damaged. We
                                              still want the Bercley Castle which we left at Portsmouth. The poor

14 Nov 1710                                  I have now settled the Palatines upon good lands on both sides of
                                             Hudson's River, about one hundred miles up adjacent to the pines; I
                                             have planted them in five villages; three on the east side of the river
                                             upon six thousand acres, I have purchased of Mr. Livingston about two
                                             mile of Row-1 of Jansen‟s Kill (brook or river); the other two on the west
                                             side near Sawyers Creek, as your Lordships will observe by the
                                             enclosed sketch No. 10 compared with your maps. The lands on the
                                             west side belong to the Queen; each family hath sufficient lot of good
                                             arable land and ships of 15 foot draught of water can sail up as far as
                                             their plantations. They have already built themselves comfortable huts
                                             and are now employed in clearing the ground. In the spring I shall set
                                             them to work preparing the trees according to Mr. Bridger's directions.

   Oct 1712               Livingston Manor   The project failed, however, and in October, 1712, the Palatines were
                          (Germantown)       set free of their indentures, but given none of the land promised at the
                                             start. About two thirds of the new settlers went to other locations
                                             including Albany, Schoharie, New York City, Long Island, New Jersey

                             The Schoharie/Mohawk Valley Story ???? To February 1769
   Abt 1750               Florida, NY (near   The first inhabitants were some Dutch families from Schenectady, who
                          old Fort Hunter)    settled on the Mohawk flats; and about 1750, 6 families arrived from
                                              Germany, and settled on the Schoharie flats; these were bordered by
                                              Irish and Scotch; Who were those German Families??

                          Fort Hunter         A military post, known as Fort Hunter, was established near the mouth
                                              of Schoharie Creek in 1711. About the same time a large number of
                                              German Palatinates, sent over by Queen Anne, settled upon the
                                              Hudson, and shortly after removed to Schoharie and the Mohawk Valley
                                              and settled upon lands given them by Government. At about the same
                                              period a considerable number of Holland Dutch, from Schenectady and
                                              vicinity, found their way into the co. and extended their improvements up
                                              the valley. In 1730 the first mill, N. of the Mohawk was built on the site of
                                              "Cranes" Village by two or three brothers named Groat; and this for a
                                              time served the settlements at German Flats, 50 mi. beyond. (6)

19 Oct 1723 Land          Stone Arabia        The land grants in this co. were made in comparatively small tracts. The
                          Patent              first were issued as early as 1703. On the 19th of Oct. 1723, a patent of
                                              12,000 acres, called "Stone Arabia," N. of the Mohawk, was granted to
                                              John Christian Garlock and others for the benefit of the
                                              Palatinates. The principal grants were made between 1730 and 1740;
                                              and in 1762 there remained little if any, unpatented land in the co.
Palatine, NY       The first settlement was made in town in 1713, by German Palatinates,
                   who came over in 1710. The larger part of the Stone Arabia Patent was
                   within the limits of this town. (3) Wm. Fox settled near Palatine Church,
                   and Peter Waggoner a little below, on the Mohawk, in 1715. The early
                   records of the settlement are lost. 5) The Ref. Prot. D. church at Stone
                   Arabia is one of the oldest in the valley. (6) The stone church (Luth.) at
                   Palatine Church was built in 1770
Palatine, NY       This town was first settled by some German families, in 1724... That part
                   of this town, called Stone-Arabia, 4 miles from the river... There are
                   2 churches, a German Lutheran, and a Dutch Reformed. Palatine
                   Village has about 35 dwellings, some stores, &c., and a stone church.

Mohawk, Town of The names of the first actual white settlers are not known. Nicholas
                Hausen (5) settled at Tribes Hill before 1725, and others, by the name
                of Fonda, Vanderworker, Doxtader, and Fisher, at an early day. (6)
                Among the other residents of the town before the Revolution were Col.
                John Butler and his son Walter N., who afterward attained an infamous
                notoriety for their inhuman atrocities and for the vindictive hate which
                they seemed to cherish against their old whig neighbors.
Root, Town of      The first settlers were Jacob Devendorf, at Currytown, Rudolph Keller,

                   pastor in 1806. (6) The principal incursions into this town during the war
                   were those made in the summer and fall of 1781. The weight of the first
                   of these, led by the tory Doxtader, July 9, 1781, fell upon the settlements

                  increased until 1756, when the whole settlement was laid waste by a
                  party of Canadians, French, and Indians. Among the early settlers were
                  families named Erghemar, Herkimer, Fox, Editch, Bellinger, Starring,
                  Wolever, and Harter.

                  which it formed a part until its organization as a town. The first
                  settlements were made by Palatinates, under the patronage of Gov.
                  Hunter, in 1722. Among the early settlers were Johan Joost Petrie,
                  Frederick and A. M. Pell, Jury Doxtater, Nicholas Feeter, Melgert Fols

                              The Wyoming/Susquehanna Story February 1769 to June 1777
 About 1763 First Settlers   Wyoming Valley       The earliest settlers were Plymouth Rock descendents who removed to
                                                  Conneticut and about the year 1763 came to the Wyoming Valley.
 5 Nov 1768 Treaty of Fort Fort Stanwix      In 1768, Fort Stanwix was the site of an important treaty conference
            Stanwix                          between the British and the Iroquois, arranged by William Johnson. The
                                             purpose of the conference was to renegotiate the boundary line
                                             between Indian lands and white settlements set forth in the
                                             Proclamation of 1763. The British government hoped a new boundary
                                             line might bring an end to the rampant frontier violence, which had
                                             become costly and troublesome. Indians hoped a new, permanent line
                                             might hold back white colonial expansion.

                                             The final treaty was signed on November 5, and extended the earlier
                                             proclamation line much further west. The Iroquois had effectively ceded
                                             Kentucky to the whites. However, the Indians who actually used the
                                             Kentucky lands, primarily Shawnee, Delaware, and Cherokee, had no
                                             role in the negotiations. Rather than secure peace, the Fort Stanwix
                                             treaty helped set the stage for the next round of hostilities.

 Fall 1772 Migration     Tunkhannock, PA After NP sells his Wilkes-Barre property to Philip Wintermute he settles
                                         in Tunkhannock 40 miles (actually about 30 miles north on the
                                         Susquehanna from Wilkes-Barre) in Wyoming Co, PA.
  ?? 1772 Migration      Mouth of          The Indian word Tunkhannock translated means: „two small streams of
                         Tunkhannock       water falling into one another, opposite of each other‟. The two streams
                         Creek             in question were Bowman‟s Creek and Tunkhannock Creek, both
                                           flowing into the Susquehanna within close proximity of each other.
                                           George Adam Bowman (b. 1731), formerly of Bowman‟s Creek in
                                           Canajoharie, just west of Corry‟s Patent in the Colony of New York,
                                           purchased Pennsylvania Proprietor‟s land in Tunkhannock and settled
                                           at the mouth of the creek there that still bears the name „Bowman‟s
                                           Creek‟. In 1772, Philip Buck settled across the river near the mouth
                                           of Tunkhannock Creek and he was joined in the same year by
                                           Abraham and Adam Wartman, all three settling near Nicholas
                                           Phillips on Tunkhannock Creek. Abraham Wartman was the brother-
                                           in-law of George Adam Bowman. Within four years, all of these men
                                           and most of their older sons would be fighting together in Butler‟s
  1773      History        Tunkhannock, PA TUNKHANNOCK was the third of the original certified towns, and was
                           (Putnam Twp.)   then called Putnam, after General Israel Putnam, of the Revolution, he
                                           owning lots here. It was organized in 1790; the borough in 1842. The
                                           oldest settlers of Tunkhannock, as far as known, were Zebulon Marcy,
                                           who lived near where the tannery now stands, and Christopher Avery,
                                           who lived on the flat on the south side of the creek. Philip Buck, a
                                           German, sent here by the Pennamites in 1773, lived upon the land of
                                           Christopher Avery, but afterwards, in company with two others, settled
                                           opposite the mouth of Bowman's creek. Abraham and Adam Wartman
                                           were also two Germans sent here by the Pennamites in the same year
                                           that Philip Buck came. They settled near the mouth of Tunkhannock
                                           creek. Nicholas Phillips settled near the creek in the same year;
                                           Jacob Teague settled about two miles above the mouth of the creek, in
                                           1774; and Increase Billings near the forks of the north and south
                                           branches, in the year 1773. He conveyed to one Reuben Herrington, in
                                           1775, and Herrington, in 1776, conveyed his to Job Tripp.

                                             Just below Philip Buck, lived Frederic Anger and Frederick Frank;
                                             below this, where La Grange now is, lived Jeremiah Osterhout, who
                                             came here prior to 1796. Source: History of Pennsylvania by William H.

14 Aug 1774 Jesse Lukens Tunkhannock, PA Mr. Field went up to Nicholas Philips', also Flipson's, and brought down
            Survey Party                 some fine corn and potatoes. Flipson came down with him and seems
                                         to be an intelligent person and to be credited; says that C. S. (Charles
                                         Stewart) surveyed the land he lives on in virtue of his son's order, and
                                         now hath returned it in pursuance of Robert Taylor's order.
20 Aug 1774 Jesse Lukens Tunkhannock, PA Mr. Peter Weiser came to the camp; informs me that Mr. Stewart is at
            Survey Party                 Wyalusing and is going up to the line of the purchase; that he sent down
                                         from Nicholas Philips' for Captain Patterson; that Job Chilloway and
                                         John Dick are about 10 miles from Wyalusing on the Muncy path
                                         locating lands, that Mr. Stewart was ill treated at Wioming by Capt.
                                         Fuller and that Capt. Butler interfered in his behalf.

Spring 1777 Nicholas       Tunkhannock, PA In the spring of 1777 a friend of his (Nicholas Phillips) near
            Pickard Letter                 Tunkhannock named Nicholas Pickard, had written to his brother John
                                           Pickard in the settlement of Wyoming further south in the valley,
                                           advising him that „As soon as the river was clear of ice “we shall march
                                           from every part” and that it would be better for John “to go out of the
                                           way”.‟ The letter had been intercepted by Nat Landon and was turned
                                           over to the Northumberland County Committee Of Safety. Summoned
                                           before the Committee, John Pickard testified that „he had gone with
                                           Nicholas about Christmastime upriver about twenty miles to
                                           Tunkhannock to see some friends and that there a Nicholas Philips
                                           had told him that come spring they would be striking “upon the
                                           Mohawk and the waters of the Susquehannough”.‟ John then took
                                           an oath of allegiance to the United States and put up bail for his good
                                           behaviour. The Tory Nicholas Pickard, who was brought before the
                                           committee on the same day, defiantly confessed that he had written the
                                           letter „in a kind of mysterious manner by reversing letters so that it might
                                           not be understood...‟. That same day Nicholas Pickard was seized and
                                           ordered to be taken to the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania
                                           to be dealt with.
