Migration of the Blackel family to the New World and Oceana

Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them.

Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Blackel family emigrate to North America: Jeremy Blackwell who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635; Roger Blackwell settled in Virginia in 1636; John Blackwell settled in Quebec in 1825 with his family.
