Migration of the Dallgetey family to the New World and Oceana
The cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies. Those who arrived safely found land, freedom, and opportunity for the taking. These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the name Dallgetey: Abigail Getty arrived in New York State in 1804 with her husband James, and sons John and Robert; Alexander, Andrew, Archibald, James, John, Robert and William Getty all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860.
