Thomas Riechart (ca.1700-1766/1768) and his family (a wife and 5 children) immigrated in 1748-1749 with his brother, Jacob, from the Palatinate of Germany to Philadelphia. In 1749 Thomas applied for a land grant in South Carolina, and received land on either side of Cannon's Creek, Craven (later Newberry) County, South Carolina. Descendants and relatives lived in South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas and elsewhere. Includes some history of the Palatinate area in Germany, and of some Palatinate colonies in colonial America, chiefly in South Carolina. This history includes lists of members (both white and slaves) of Saint Luke's Lutheran Church (located about three miles from the town of Propserity), Newberry County, South Carolina between 1776 and 1857. It also includes plat maps showing land ownership along Cannon's Creek in the 1700s.
