Europeans Settled the Shenandoah Valley - Shenandoah Co. VA Wills, Estates #genealogy #virginiapioneers.net

Europeans Settled the Shenandoah Valley
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
First, the Pennsylvania Germans came into the Shenandoah Valley. Then the Scots-Irish were attracted by the tall grass. Because of the physical barrier of the Allegheny Front on the West the settlers were steered South into Virginia. Actually, it was the Blue Ridge Mountains which deterred the English from moving into the Shenandoah Valley. Those in the valley imported merchandise from europe, such as cloth, guns, glass and wine. Like other colonists, they acquired sugar and rum from the West Indies. They exported were grain and other foodstuffs to the eastern towns.
