Caviness,
I don't know if anyone had to decide on a nationality. Ships logs , ID,
passage paper should have been enouth if needed.
According to historians the Scotch/Irish gave William Penn more trouble
than anyone else so he raised the price of land . The scoth/Irish then were
sold cheaper land on the frontier. William Penn got them out of his
community plus they formed the first defense against Indian attacks. From
travelers who had been to Virginia and the Carolinas they heard of the good
land and heavy forest and pleanty of water so they headed south to Virgina
and The Carolinas on the old Indian Trading Path.Germans didn't cause any
troble but some did move south.
