When did the Riffle's first come to the United States. Some research indicates that they came from Germany area and moved to various locations. One location may have been Swiss area. Does anyone know If the Riffle's moved from Germany to the Swiss area if so how far back can anyone show a date. The oldest information I found was 1745 when a Riffle came to the United states. Anyone have any information older then this and where did they arrive in the United States.
A lot of the Riffles were located in PA and Ohio. I am looking to find information on the first Riffle's arrival in the United States, the year and what ship did he or she arrive on and where was the arrival point. (P.S. to the person responding to my last message, your name sound very familiar, are you a PA. Riffle) thanks for your response. I will also rersearch to find out how old the town is in good old Swiss country.
