Southeastern Pennsylvania

between the Susquehanna & Delaware Rivers


The Clymers, Weirs, Nulls, and Basingers entered the Colonies

on the Delaware River (far right).

The Clymers settled in Germantown (now part of Philadelphia) and then moved to Bucks County.

The Weirs took the Delaware River to the Neshaminy Creek and settled in Bucks County.


The Nulls settled first along the Swatara Creek, a tributary of the Susquehanna River. In the 19th Century they lived in Lancaster County, including the city of Columbia on the Susquehanna River.

The Basingers arrived in Philadelphia in 1770 and moved to Lancaster County, near Brickerville. Both Nulls and Basingers

have marriages and baptisms recorded at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster.
