THE FIRST SETTLERS
The first landowners in the Rockhill Township were English- speaking
people. However, the first actual settlers were German-speaking.
They were also known as the Pennsylvania Dutch (misnomer of Duetsch,
the German word for German). These farmers knew how to take care
of the soil because it was just like the soil in Germany. Each
year they planted different crops to keep the soil rich. Below
are some of the settlers who first came to places in Pennsylvania
like West Rockhill.
