Eighteenth Century Emigrants from Langenselbold in Hesse to America
Annette K. Burgert.
The emigration from Langenselbold and nearby villages in Germany started in 1709, when the first group left for England, arriving in New York in 1710. More than 70 families came directly to Pa. with a few arriving before 1727 when the ship passenger lists start. Some of the families include names such as Beck, Dressler, Eckert, Faust, Fischer, Hahn, Koch, Lamm, Leinbach, Lerch, Reber, Roth, etc.
