The most illustrious Palatine, Conrad Weiser the younger, did not go with this group to Pennsylvania -not until 1729-but he was much concerned in the venture.
In his Autobiography (not published until 1875) he states definitely, though too briefly, that the fifteen families floated down the Susquehanna in canoes (dugouts), up the Swatara, and then moved on to the Tulpehocken, "and drove their cattle over land." This latter statement has caused contention.
From Godfried Fiedler's Deposition of 1726 it is evident that a party of Palatines had investigated the Province of Pennsylvania prior to the migration.
