Thanks Violet! I've been researching the moravians lately as one of my
ancestors was closely connected with them. I hadn't noticed before that New
Garden was wstablished so close to Bethabara.

Larry More and others:


"In consequence of informations of this kind, received at Nantucket in the
year 1776, a considerable number of them purchased a large track of land in
the county of Orange, in North Carolina, situated on the several spring
heads of Deep River, which is the western branch of Cape Fear, or North West
River. The advantage of being able to convey themselves by sea, to within
forty miles of the spot, the richness of the soil, &c. made them cheerfully
quit an island on which there was no longer any room for them. There they
have founded a beautiful settlement, known by the name of New Garden,
contiguous to the famous one which the Moravians have at Bethabara,
Bethamia, and Salem, on Yadkin River. "

The above was sent to me by my son, Jeff, on July 26, 2000. In September
1999, we had attended the Mendenhall Family Reunion in Guilford, Co., NC
during Hurricane Flood. This is perhaps one of the ways my COFFINs might
have migrated from Nantucket, MA>Guilford, Co,m NC.

While this URL is called "Brethren Migrations", these are all well known
routes, which started as animal traces, then taken over by the Indians,
finally by our ancestors as they moved across the country.

Look at the "Great Wagon Road" for PA Quakers. I belive that mine probably
came this way. Some were first in Monocacy settlement, near Fredrick, MD.
