This is a data gathering page for the descendent's of George Michael Rote, born in Mannheim, Germany around 1723. He came to Pennsylvania, after 1764. His son George was born in Germany in 1764, and his Grandson Michael, was born in Pennsylvania in 1804. Micheal is where the spelling of the family was changed. At this time we don't know if Michael, or possibly a County Clerk, somewhere along the line changed the spelling. Michael loaded his wife and children, and moved West of the Allegheny's around 1835. He settled in Venango County. According to tax records, there were Rhoads families already settled there. Perhaps these were family members that came earlier than Michael to "Open up" new land for the family. "Linn's Annals of Buffalo Valley" Show the Rote's to be a prosperous family in what is now Centre and Union Counties. Anybody wanting to add information to the Family Tree is encouraged to do so.
