The Great Migration



Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bohenn or a variant listed above: Betu Bohn, who, according to immigration lists, was the first Bohn member to arrive in North America, settling in Pennsylvania in 1728; Adam Bohn, aged 27.
