Melchior Clos - 1737 Germ >Philadelphia
Posted by: Emmi Holmes Date: August 12, 2000 at 09:35:04
  of 82

Melchior Clos (Closs?, Kloess ?, Kles ?) came from Germany in 1737. He sailed on the ship Glasgow from Rotterdam, arrived at Philadelphia on 9 Sept. 1737. He was aged 32 at the time, therefore born 1705.

Any information on him, where he went in PA, family he may have joined, etc, would be appreciated.

We are descended from Erhardt Glaze (Kloetz, Klaess ? ) who was a young boy also on that Glasgow sailing. Am wondering if there might be a connection there?
