The four ships in this collection were early settlers of Ebenezer, the Salzburger settlement. The Wrightsborough (Quaker) settlement was not yet in existence, and its location was still part of the Creek lands. Salzburg was/is a city and region of Austria, and not the same as the country. The Salzburger refugees had taken shelter in various parts of Germany and in London before the GA Colony was organized, so they began their journey from those locations (not from Salzburg).

My wording was a bit off but had the same sentiment in mind as your message. I had already listed that it was one of four ships (in blue) but I reworded the paragraph a bit to be more consise.

Thanks for reaching out!
