The chief contributors to the population were the Scotch-Irish Presbyterians from the north of Ireland, the Germans, usually known as Pennsylvania Dutch, who adhered to the tenets of
the Lutheran and German Reformed Churches, and the Moravians, or United
Brethren, from Moravia and Bohemia.
The Scotch-Irish were soon followed by another stream of immigrants the
Germans who had previously located in Pennsylvania.
On Jeffrey's map, a copy of which is in the Congressional Library at
Washington City, there is plainly laid down a road called "the Great Road
from the Yadkin River through Virginia to Philadelphia, distant 435
miles." It ran from Philadelphia through Lancaster and York to
Winchester, thence up the Shenandoah Valley, crossing the Fluvanna River
to Looney's Ferry, thence to Staunton River, and down the river through
the Blue Ridge, thence southward, crossing Dan River below the mouth of
Mayo River, thence still southward near the Moravian settlement to the
Yadkin River, just above the mouth of Linville Creek and about ten miles
above the mouth of Reedy Creek.
In the autumn of the year in which the Wachovia Tract was conveyed to the Moravians the first
colonists, twelve unmarried Brethren, came overland from Bethlehem,
Pennsylvania, where a strong Moravian settlement existed, and founded
Bethabara. The group consisted of the Rev. Bernhard Adam Grube, the
pastor, Jacob Loesch (Lash), the warden or business manager, Dr. Hans
Martin Kalberlahn, a physician, Hans Peterson, a tailor, Christopher
Merkly, a baker, Herman Loesch (Lash), a farmer, Erich Ingebretsen, a
carpenter, Johannes Lisher, a farmer, Henrich Feldhausen, a carpenter,
Jacob Lung, a gardener, Friedrich Jacob Pfeil, a shoemaker and tanner, and
Jacob Beroth, a farmer.31 The zeal with which the Moravians labored in
their new home is best described by Dr. Clewell.
In October, 1755, two years after the establishment of Rowan County and
St. Luke's Parish, upon the request of the Moravians of Wachovia, the
Assembly passed an act creating Wachovia into a separate and distinct
parish with all the privileges and immunities which the other parishes of the
province enjoyed. The new parish was called Dobbs in honor of the
Governor.33 In 1759 eight married couples from Bethabara and
others founded Bethania, three miles northwest of Bethabara. Settlers
continued to come to Wachovia. In 1766 the settlement of Salem was
begun.34 A few years later Friedberg, which had gradually grown up in southern
Wachovia, and Friedland, in the southeast of the tract, which was partly
settled by Germans from Broad Bay in the present State of Maine, were
formally set off and recognized.
The Germans who came to Rowan from Pennsylvania and settled along Second Creek were
members of the Reformed and Lutheran churches. Being too few in numbers to erect houses of
worship for each of the two denominations, they united in building a temporary structure on the
lands of a Mr. Fullenwider. This church was called the Hickory Church and stood on the site
now occupied by St. Peter's Lutheran Church. The date of its erection is not given, but no doubt it was built quite early, for the section was settled by German immigrants about 1750.
