John Jacob Holtzclaw, who immigrated from Prussia to Virginia. is my 7th great grandfather. There is a lot of clean up work to do in this area, and I'd love help from any interested parties.
The HOLTZCLAWs were among the GERMANNA Colonists of Virginia. Branches later went into KY and beyond, a common migration pattern. For an overview of the Germanna colonies and the settlers, etc., please see http://www.germanna.org . The Memorial Foundation is very active. There is an annual reunion in Culpeper & Madison Counties, VA.
