Research, Entries, Ocean
"In January 1743 the whole family emigrated to Carolina.
Thereafter no more news came to Dorlikon." With this footnote the
entries to Rudolf Eprecht's line in the Epprecht family chronicle
end. It touched me when, three decades ago, I received Reverend
Robert Epprecht's research work on the Epprecht family as a gift.
According to Reverend Epprecht's findings, other villagers from
Dorlikon had also left for Carolina, among whom a certain Conrad
Basler with his family. Did they ever reach the other side of the
Ocean? If so, where did they settle? And do these families still exist
