Migration of the Kishore family to the New World and Oceana
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Kishore or a variant listed above: Ananias Krafft Kiser, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732; Christoph Kiser, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732; Christoff Kiser, who came to Philadelphia in 1732.
