The Lindenmuth List Free-Space Page

This is a collection point for Wikitree profiles that represent the names on the Lindenmuth's Map of Palatines who were early settlers of the Tulpehocken Creek Valley in Pennsylvania.[1]

The "Lindenmuth Map" was created ca 1904 purporting to be a list of the first Tulpehocken land owners in 1723. Since its publication in Morton L. Montgomery's Biographical and Historical Annals of Berks Co, PA (pub. 1909) and in the PA German Magazine-Oct 1904, others have noted that the 1723 date is incorrect and that it should refer to settlers after the year 1728. Many on the map weren't even in PA until 1733.

The map link above points to a copy of the map on Wikitree, onto which the original names on the map have been transcribed (and more fully identified) by Wikitree genealogist Sara Patton. Many--but not all--of these pioneers migrated from Schoharie New York between 1723 and 1733. Some of names on the list immigrated via Philadelphia (~1725-1733). The original published list has a date of 1723; however some of the names on the list have been documented from ships' records to only have arrived later. I don't think anybody on the list arrived after 1735, so I have set the profile range for people arriving between 1723 and 1735.

I have added the name and profiles of wives, if known. Many of their family names are the same as other settlers on the list, emphasizing the many inter-relationships among the early Tulpehocken settlers. If additional profiles are found/created and have sources, please connect their profiles to their names.
