In February of 1717, it was decided by the Mennonites in the Pfalz that it was time to send larger groups to Pennsylvania. By May some had received certificates which allowed them help from the Dutch brethren when they arrived in Holland. It was reported that in August 1717, three ships carrying 363 Mennonite passengers
arrived in Philadelphia. We do not know the names of the ships and there are no ship lists which contain the names of the passengers. I have used tax list and warrants to determine who probably arrived on those ships1. My total is about 30-35 people too many, but I may have included too many wives or children. It is also possible that a few of these families listed below arrived earlier than 1717 or perhaps arrived on another ship that arrived earlier in the year.

22. Jacob Brubacher (c1678-1751). He settled in, E. Hempfield Township, Lancaster County. He probably emigrated from Ibersheim, Germany. His wife. His children; Hans (b. c1705), Elizabeth (b. c1707), Anna (b. c1709), Catherine (b. c1714).
(1) Many of the names on the 1710 and 1717 lists are listed on Rupp's list of inhabitants of Lancaster County for 1709 and 1712. However, Rupp seems to be mistaken, as there were no Mennonite settlers in Lancaster County until 1710 and many of the names on his 1712 list do not appear in any Pennsylvania records
until 1717. I have not been able to find the original source for his 1709 or 1712 lists that he published many years ago.
