Go back to 1750 when it was still AUGUSTA CO. VA when all the immigrants came to the south bend of the Potomac.
Seems a whole group of family/neighbors came to LANCASTER PA and than on to VA. HAUSE/HOUSE/HAWS/HAUS/HAUZ/etc, SHAU/SHOBE/SHOPE/SHOOP/etc.,(3 BROTHERS), HIRE/HYER/HEYER/HEIRER/ etc., ORAHOOD/ORAHUD/ORCHARD/ORR/etc, Bauer/BOWER/POWER, LUTZ, LANCISO(Anthony), and more came and ended up with CARR, PETERSON, DAVIS, MOUSE/MAUS/MOSS, BARKERS, BUFFENBARGER, and other families in area. Some were from Germany, others from Switzerland. Just a stone throw across the river from each other.
1753 AUGUSTA became HAMPSHIRE CO. Check first federal census, 1784? for names. History of HAMPSHIRE or HARDY CO VA, or ALLEGHANEY PASS?
I am from the CARR family.
