Loesch Family

First Generation

Balthazar Loesch was born in 1671 in Gernsheim, near Worms. He left London on December 25, 1709, with other Palatine immigrants, but died on the voyage along with many others. The survivors reached New York in June 1710, encamping initially on Nuttings, now Governors Island NY, and from there moving to Livingston Manor and Schoharie Valley, NY, later to Berks Co. PA.
