Do you have any primary sources that show Schwaigern GERMANY and not Schwaigern, AUSTRIA as the location for these first Kepingers that came over?

There were areas of Germany that were under Austrian rule at this time and it wasn't until 1740s or so when their hold started to slip.

I know everyone says that the Keplingers came from Germany, but I'd love to see a primary source for this.

Does anyone have a copy of the ship manifest from the Thistle of Glasgow? Not a translation or typed copy but the actual copy from the National Archives?

Kind regards,
Linda Caplinger
