    Father of Wattenbarger family


    It is evident that Adam left the Pennsylvania area in 1790 to migrate to Virginia, and from there on to Washington Co., Tenn. where he settled for the remainder of his life.
    Per Aunt Doolie: The city of Philadeplhia became crowded with immigrants during the Palantine immigration. Though they brought many skills with them and did much to improve the lives of the early settlers, their main interest was in the land. They moved out of the city to the rich limestone valleys of Pennsylvania. They built sturdy barns and houses, and did well with their stock and crops. Since they spoke a strange dialect and on being asked who they were by the English and Scotch-Irish settlers, they would reply "Deutsch", so the settlers called them Dutch.

    the Wattenbargers, were hard workers and thrifty. They have been called stingy, but that is not true. They helped their neighbors and took good care of their children. They thought to waste was a sin. As far as Aunt Doolie knew, none of them ever accepted charity or lived off of another man's toil.

    According to history the Wattenbargers came from the Rhine Valley Germany in 1791 to Pennsylvania on the boat SHIRLEY. James Allen was Captain of the boat. There were 288 passengers aboard. According to history A Mrs. Wattenbarger and her five sons came over on the boat SHIRLEY. The sons were all under 16 except 2. Michael and John George were 16 or older. Some members of the family came south to Virginia and North Carolina, while others remained in Pennsylvania where they engaged in the tannery business and in the manufacture of fine dress shoes for women. Some of the descendants of the Wattenbargers who settled in Virginia came to upper East Tennessee.
