Importation to Germanna Colony

  • Martin & Johannes Hirsch (Deer) arrived in Philadelphia on the Christian in 1749. (Note: Martin's brother Johannes "Jeremiah" Deer had clearly arrived several years before Martin, by at least 1738, when records of him appear in Orange County, Virginia. Johannes must have returned to Philadelphia in 1749 with his brother and perhaps other family members).
