George ZEWITZ was born about 1695 in Strasbourg, Bas-Rhine, Alsace, France.10,15 In 1731 he was a miller in Center Valley, Lehigh, PA.15 The stone mill at Center Valley, Lehigh, PA (Highway 309 east 10 miles of Allentown) was built by George ZEWITZ, owned by Harry Geissinger, Modhill Chevilier, as a restaurant. It was torn down about 1965. It may have been built as early as 1731 when he first acquired the land (1730) or soon after. Records of Pennsylvania show John Chapman surveyed the land in the name of George Zewitz, 150 acres of land on both sides of Saucon Creek at present-day Center Valley. Also, J. Chapman received an order for a survey from Jacob Taylor on 3 July 1731 (by order of Casper Wister). This was part of a 300 acre tract, a warrant from he Penns to Casper Wister. Transfer in 1737 of the full 300 acres to Zewitz; an additional 50 acres was added in 1738. Upon George's death in 1759, George Jr. got the mill, who sold 105 acres but kept 44 1/2 acres which included the mill. George Jr. sold the remaining land in 1768 and moved to North Carolina. He signed a will on 24 May 1759 in Center Valley, Lehigh, PA. Extract from the will of George ZEWITZ written 24 May 1759, probated 13 June 1759:

I do value my plantation with all the buildings thereon erected and the appurtances thereunto belonging at the rate of seven hundred pounds. My son, Joseph, shall remain in possession of my place as long as his agreement, concerning the rent metions. My loving wife, Barbara, shall possess the house wherein I dwell during her life, also three beds and two cows. Also meadow near the small house and orchard near the mill, both to go back to the place on her death. Also the chest in the room which I occupy, also all my pewter, my table, bedstead, my irson, and earthen pots. To my daughter, Esther, 6 pounds as wages in place of the cow I promised her. My children, Henry, John, George, Jacob, Mary, Abraham, Joseph, and Esther shall divide residue of my personal estate equally. My children shall divide all whatsoever equaly between them real and personal estate, deducting whatever any of them has already received. My place shall be charged with 150 pounds interest from which my wife, Barbara, shall receive annually. My children, or such child as can pay others their share, shall have my plantation, and maintain it; otherwise it is to be sold

Executors: Joseph ZEWITZ and Henry Weber, who are to have 5 shillings per day.
Signed with mark .... X .... George ZEWITZ
Witnesses: Hans Musselman and Valentine Young He died in Jun 1759 in Saucan Creek, Bucks, PA.10 He was buried in Mennonite Cemetery.10 George ZEWITZ (Zavitz, Zavietz), the first to come to America, is reported to have "lived within sight of the spires of the famous cathedral in Strasbourg, France." As a Protestant, he and his family were part of a flood of immigrants to the William Penn Colony where rights to religious freedom had been included in the founding constitution as early as 1681. There is no specific documentation that the Zavitz's were Mennonites on arrival although they were part of that community once in America and after 1797 in Canada. Strasbourg seemed to be a "safe haven" for many years to Anabaptists like the Mennonites. There is no record of the death sentence against these individuals in Strasbourg.

Nevertheless, Protestants in that city felt the pull from the new world. The Rhine was just two miles away with its access to Dutch religious freedom, ships to America and there was news of British support for settlement. Undoubtedly, the Zavitz's had heard much about the migration of tens of thousands of Palatine Protestants down the Rhine to Holland and Britain and then on to a "good life" in these colonies and Anabaptists, much attracted to the prospect of escaping the harshness of European society, the lack of productive farm land and the security to raise a family. They must also have been aware of the long waits in refugee champs before ships would be available to take them, the thousands who embarked who never made it to the new world, many as forty percent of those attempting the crossing died of disease at sea and the settlement mismanagement that plagued many who did survive the Atlantic crossing.

There is no record of George ZEWITZ and his wife, Barbara, on the immigrant ship list nor of his arrival in Philadelphia. Since these records were started in 1727, we may assume he arrived before that time. The first record of him in the new world is his purchase of three hundred acres in 1732 from a Caspar Wistar, near Center Valley about 50 miles north of the city in a new district in a fertile valley along the Saucon Creek, Upper Bucks county, about six miles south of what was later to be the site of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. As a miller, he looked for mill sites. He and the small group of Mennonite settlers he was with were also influenced by the opening of the Durham Iron Works about fifteen miles away. The local native tribes, Saucon, Lenni-Lenapes and Shawnees were friendly at this time, and did not resist the arrival of these "white settlers" in their hunting grounds.

About 1731, George built a grist mill in Center Valley, Pennsylvania. He naturalized on 29 March 1735. George and Barbara died on the homestead, he in 1759 and she about 1766. George's will was probated on 13 June 1759. He is buried in a Mennonite Cemetery less than a mile south of his homestead. As the immigrant progenitor he had lived about half of his life in Europe and half in Pennsylvania where he experienced religious toleration. All of their eight children lived to adulthood and married. Most were still in Bucks county, close to their parents. All probably spoke German, exclusively. Parents: John ZEWITZ and Catharina.
