Thomas Riechart (ca.1700-1766/1768) and his family (a wife and 5 children) immigrated in 1748-1749 with his brother, Jacob, from the Palatinate of Germany to Philadelphia. In 1749 Thomas applied for a land grant in South Carolina, and received land on either side of Cannon's Creek, Craven (later Newberry) County, South Carolina. Descendants and relatives lived in South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas and elsewhere. Includes some history of the Palatinate area in Germany, and of some Palatinate colonies in colonial America, chiefly in South Carolina. This history includes lists of members (both white and slaves) of Saint Luke's Lutheran Church (located about three miles from the town of Propserity), Newberry County, South Carolina between 1776 and 1857. It also includes plat maps showing land ownership along Cannon's Creek in the 1700s.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
