Nicolaus Gottschalk is listed among passengers on the ship Francis and Elizabeth sailing from Rotterdam and arriving in Philadelphia 21 Sep 1742. (he would have been age 6)
Harrison Co., Ohio Land Patent records show Nicholas Gutshall of Washington Co., PA to secure land in Harrison Co. on 8 May 1806. Other records show that Nicholas Gutshall erected the first saw & grist mill ever built in German Twp., and quite possibly the first ever built in Harrison Co., running it with both horse and water power. (Beers' p. 644) He died in Oct of 1807, so Nicholas did not last long after that accomplishment. One record shows that he came to Ohio from Washington Co., PA.
