Before the American Revolution, the descendents of our immigrant ancestors who had settled originally in the Chesapeake Bay Area, New England and New York moved inland to newly-colonized areas on what was then the western frontier but was not far from the coast. These areas are shown on the enlarged map below.
Our English ancestors (in the Acree, Ogden and Skipworth branches) moved to the locations indicated.
Our Swiss/German ancestors (in the Hoover branch) immigrated initially to the new colony of Pennsylvania, but some soon moved south into Maryland, as indicated, and later into North Carolina, as shown on that map.
Our Dutch ancestors (in the TenEyck and Williamson branches), who had settled initially in New York, moved to New Jersey, as shown on that map.
These 18th-century migrating ancestors and many of their 18th-19th century descendents lived in the following places, shown with approximate years of residence - dating from a couple's arrival at a location or marriage there. Some moves are detailed, but complexity has been minimized by focusing on primary residences - usually where most of their children were born.
