In the spring of 1743, booked passage on boat sailing up the Rhine River to Holland. Sailed from Rotterdam, Holland to US by way of Cowes, England. Obtained a sponsor in return for working off the cost of passage upon arrival in Philadelphia. Sailed on the ship, "Loyal Judith," under James Coney Master.
