In the eighteenth century conditions were poor in the Palatinate section
of Germany. In earlier centuries, religious refugees from Switzerland had
fled into the Palatinate in large numbers. In 1709 a large colony of Palatines
emigrated from Germany to the New World. They discovered conditions in the
Mohawk Valley of New York (where they had settled) to be as worse as those
they left behind in Germany. By 1711 many had returned to Germany. The tales
of their experiences brought a halt to the exodus to America until a new
wave of immigrates began to arrive in 1727 and continued until about the
time of the American Revolution. Settling first in Pennsylvania and by the
late seventeen hundreds many migrated into the Shenandoah Valley area of
Maryland and Virginia and into areas of North Carolina. About 1800 migration
in Ohio was beginning.
