             Richard B. Hollinger's Book

In 1731 Hans Jacob Hollinger journeyed to America, arriving at the Port of
Philidelphia in the Colony of Pennsylvania, on September 21. He arrived on
the Ship Brittania with twenty-four of his brethern on board. It is stated
in the ship's record that they stopped in Dort for treatment of their ill
before completing their journey to America. Jacob made this journey alone
and during his stay, lived in Lancaster boro.

One year after his arrival we find Jacob returning to the Old World in
1732. In 1734 he again becomes a father; this son is named Christian.

In 1737 Jacob boarded the Ship Virtuous Grace in Rotterdam, Holland, bound
for America. Jacob was again making this trip alone, having left his family
in the care of his brother Kristian. In the ship's docket, Jacob is listed
as a freeman, an adult man of forty years of age. The following information
was taken from from a book entitled "German Pioneers" by Strassburg and
Hinkle. It states the following: "Two-hundred and twenty-five Foreigners
from the Palatinate and other areas who with their families arrived in
Rotterdam, but last from Cowes to the port of Philidelphia, and qualified
on this day, September 24, 1737, John Bull, Ship Master, on the Ship
"Virtuous Grace." Jacob who was listed on this ship took the oath of
allegiance the following day in Philidelphea. How long Jacob remained in
Philedelphia is not known, but records show that the German emigrants were
quick to move into the rich fertile farm lands of Pennsylvania. Jacob, a
farmer by occupation, settled in Warwick, Lebanon Township, Lancaster
