The names, Trades, etc. of the German Protestants to be settled in New York.

We are indebted to Pascoe Williams of Albany for the following additional names to the Locherthal Records. These were secured in the State Library at Albany. The list gives the names of the party who came to England with Rev. Kocherthal from the lower Palatinate in Germany in 1706. It will be noted that the German feminine ending of "in" is added wherever the name of a wife or daughter occurs. The list was dated June 28, 1708.
