1710 settlement in Mohawk River Valley HAGAMAN, New York & resettlement to Penna

I understand that some 3,000 Germans left the Palatine in 1709, were refugees in England, then settled in upstate NY. After trying to make homes in the Mohawk valley they were ousted by the rapacious colonial landlords. Some moved farther up the Mohawk (perhaps Hagaman, Montgomery Co., NY), but most moved to Pennsylvania. Did they take the "Old Mine Road?" Anyone know of the history of the town Hagaman, NY and/or the families that resettled in PA?
