Here is a question for people on the list.
How many of you have family who moved from Chester County
Pa to NC during the early 1700s?
Recently I noticed that almost all of my family moved to NC
from Chester County if they stopped anywhere between
England and NC.
There are some exceptions -- such as a few who stopped in
northern Delaware (colony, not county) instead.
Is there a strong correlation between Chester County and Quaker
settlers in the western QMs of NCYM?
This issue is more relevent when we realize that Ohio Yearly Meeting
was settled for the most part by different families than those who moved
to NCYM before the Revolution. Did the Ohio YM families come from
a different county in Pa?
Is anyone else interested in this phemonenon?
