Early Settlers of Fayette Township, Seneca County NY


This is a list of Pennsylvania German settlers arriving between 1800 and 1810. This list was published in a volume of "Notes and queries" issued by Dr. W. H. Egle, state librarian of PA in 1898. This list is reproduced from the book Centennial Historical Sketch of Fayette, NY 1800-1900 by Deidrich Willers, published in 1900. Each surname is listed only once: the father, if he moved here, or the oldest or most prominent member of the family, if the father did not relocate. The names of transient residents are not included, nor the names of foreign born Germans.
