The Great Wagon Road

It's important for researchers to understand one of the great migration trails that existed during the 18th. century. It was called The Great Wagon Road aka The Great Philadelphia Wagon Road. The route was as follows...

Philadelphia, PA > Lancaster, PA > York, PA > Gettysburg, PA ? Hagerstown, MD > Winchester, VA> Harrissonburg, VA> Staunton, VA (Augusta Co.!!)> Lexington, Va> Fincastle, VA> Bethania, NC> Bethabara, NC> Salem, NC> Salisbury, NC> Charlotte, NC> Rock Hill, SC> Newberry, SC> Augusta, SC and Camden, SC.

I mention all this so that each of you can spot a possible area where your ancestor might have removed to and to show you the close relationship that VA, MD & PA have in the settling of the Germans who immigrated during the 18th. century.
