ALDERFER, E. GORDON - Northampton Heritage, the Story of an American County

Title: Northampton Heritage, the Story of an American County
Description: Easton, PA: The Northampton County Historical and Genealogical Society, 1953. First Edition; First Impression. Hardcover. We provide delivery tracking to all US orders. Like most of the eastern half of Pennsylvania, Northampton County’s history is directly tied to William Penn. Penn received his famous land grant from King Charles II – named Pennsylvania (Penn’s Woods) by the king himself – as the settlement of a debt owed his late Father, Admiral Penn, in March 1681. Historians record that this land we now call Northampton County was settled primarily by immigrants who brought their religions with them, and that the observance of these various religions was first and foremost in their lives.“The Lutherans upon the Lower Lehigh, the Mennonites, the Dunkers, Schwenckfelders, and Reformers, who entered the southwestern townships; the Presbyterians; the refugee Huguenots and Armenians who re-occupied the abandoned lands and orchards of the Hollanders; and last, but not least, the Moravians, who settled at Nazareth and Bethlehem, in 1740 and 1742; each and all set up God's altar in their wilderness homes, and made His worship their first duty and their chief delight.”; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 328 pages. Very Good+ with no dust jacket .
