Migration of the Gardenhire family to the New World and Oceana


European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Gardenhires to arrive in North America, and among them were: Hans Pedder Gartner, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1731; as did Johann Wilhelm Gartner in 1748. Johann Georg Gaertner came to America in 1782; and Christian Gaertner settled in Texas in 1846..
