Migration of the Koggman 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 Koggmans to arrive in North America, and among them were: William Cockman who settled in Virginia in 1653; Bern Heiner Kockmann settled in America in 1848; Joseph Kockman, age 22; arrived in New York City in 1873.
