The Second Colony (1717)

The 1717 Colony from the Kraichgau of Baden and Württemberg, as well as some from the Rhineland Pfalz (Palatinate) settled first across the Rapidan River from Fort Germanna, then from 1725 to 1727 began to move to the Robinson River Valley in present day Madison County and patent land in their own names.

(* Names with the Asterisks are the sons and daughters of Anna Barbara Schöne from her previous marriages in Germany to Blankenbaker and Schlucter. These children may have lived in the household of Cyriachus Fleischmann upon arrival and escaped notice in the official records.)
