Re: KEPLINGER of Ohio

There were areas of Germany that were under Austrian rule at this time and it wasn't until 1740s or so when their hold started to slip.
I know everyone says that the Keplingers came from Germany, but I'd love to see a primary source for this.
Does anyone have a copy of the ship manifest from the Thistle of Glasgow? Not a translation or typed copy but the actual copy from the National Archives?
