Rev. Joshua Kochertahl was the pastor of the Palatines in West Camp and Schoharie. He received permission to accompany the Palatines in 1708 and came to England from the lower Palatinate, from whence in 1709 he embarked for American with ten families consisting of 41 persons. He returned to London and in 1710 accompanied the second migration. He died in 1719. His wife was Sibylla Carlotta and his children were Benigna, Sibylla, Christian, Joshua, and Susanna Sibylla.
