In my research of many different families, one of the main
patterns were they would either enter in PA or SC or Boston.
Then around 1750 everyone went to Virginia/WestVirginia.
Around 1770-1800 some wandered to NC, SC, GA, FL.
Alot of them left NC to live for awhile in Tennesse before
going on to Kentuck, Indiana, or SAINT CLARE CO. IL.
The others living Virginia took the Ohio River route. There were 2 famous routes, National Road and the other I
believe is the Allegheny Road. There was alot of Military
Land in ROSS COUNTY OH and some in IL, possibly IN.
This area was the NorthWest Territory at the time. My
Virginia family members ended up splitting up and go ALL
of the ways.
