I'm sorry, but all that I have is a handwritten copy of an old Bible. At least that's where the copy was supposed to have came from. The relative that made the copy is deceased, but my father has the copy that was made for him. If my memory is close to correct, this was made in the 1950s. I hope to have a website of my own in the near future, so I can scan and show my actual records. If my memory serves me right, in another old handwritten history, Felix first moved to NC, then Hans joined him. To have arrived in the Fall of the year, they likely had friends or relatives in Philly, and spent the winter there. Then moved to NC. It may have taken years to have gotten to NC.
By the way, does anyone know the country of origin of the three brothers? The 'Francis and Elizebeth' was reportedly named for Sir Francis Drake and his wife Elizebeth, who were English, but the passengers came from Amsterdam. There were Dutch settlements in NC. Solomon, son of Hans, held a political office in NC. It is unlikely that a non-Englishman would have held office. So what are we?
