Life Sketch
Text:

The Slagle family descends from the immigrant, Christoph Friedrich Schlegel, who was born October 24 1676 and died about 1772. He left Saxony for America between 1697 and 1700 first settling in Germantown, Pennsylvania. It is speculated he was associated with Pietism, a revivalist movement in the German Lutheran Church and that he came to North America for religious freedom. Some genealogists suspect Christoph was even a member of the secret Rosicrucian Order.

He later moved from Germantown, southward to the Susquehanna Valley. He is believed to have built the first water mill within the Susquehanna watershed.

If a genealogist were to follow his movements and land purchases in his lifetime, they would find he was quite wealthy. The inventory of his estate is said to be one of the seventh largest in the colonial period.
