Emigrants from Bern, Switzerland, and the German Palatinate, led by a minor Swiss nobleman, Baron Christoph von Graffenried, are credited with establishing New Bern (North Carolina's second-oldest town) as well as being among the earliest settlers of Craven and Jones Counties. The Swiss were paupers whom the city government of Bern looked upon as undesirables and wished to remove from the area. The German Palatines, who were larger in number, were primarily residents from the Palatinate area located along the Rhine River. They had suffered from repeated wars, particularly the then-ongoing War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14), and an exceptionally harsh winter in 1708 that induced thousands to flee their homeland for better lives elsewhere. Many Palatines were lured by advertisements distributed by agents from Carolina and Pennsylvania who hoped to attract settlers to their still sparsely settled colonies. Others were influenced by the writings of a German pastor extolling the glories of the New World, which hinted that Queen Anne of England might grant passage to America to Palatines.

On 22 Sept. 1711, the Tuscarora Indians, angered by the enslavement of tribe members and "sharp" trading practices by settlers, surprised and killed approximately 130 persons along the Neuse, Trent, and Pamlico Rivers. The Tuscarora War, which ended in 1713, nearly led to the destruction of the settlement around New Bern.

'Dangerous Times': Mayor of New Bern, NC Says Residents Being Rescued From Attics, Roofs

Dana Outlaw, the mayor of New Bern, North Carolina, said on Fox News Channel Friday that about 150 residents will need to be rescued after severe flooding from Hurricane Florence.

New Bern appears to be one of the worst-hit areas, with a 10-and-a-half-foot storm surge and authorities reporting hundreds of water rescues Thursday night and Friday morning.

Outlaw said he declared a 24-hour curfew early Friday due to continuing flooding and numerous downed trees and power lines.

George Kornegay, along with another young boy, George Koonce, were taken hostage by the Indians and held until the spring of 1712. Both George's were then apprenticed to Jacob Mullen (Miller)* (see note), clerk of the Craven County Court until they were of age. Jacob saw to it that these orphaned Palatine boys received their fair share of the land promised earlier to the colonist in the De Graffenreid expedition. -

By CHUCK BURTON
10 minutes ago



WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) ? Catastrophic flooding from Florence spread across the Carolinas on Sunday, with roads to Wilmington cut off by the epic deluge and muddy river water swamping entire neighborhoods miles inland. ?The risk to life is rising with the angry waters,? Gov. Roy Cooper declared as the storm?s death toll climbed to 15.

The storm continued to crawl westward, dumping more than 30 inches of rain in spots since Friday, and fears of historic flooding grew. Tens of thousands were ordered evacuated from communities along the state?s steadily rising rivers ? with the Cape Fear, Little River, Lumber, Waccamaw and Pee Dee rivers all projected to burst their banks.

Hurricane Florence death toll climbs to 37; Trump visits stricken area
Posted 11:24 AM, September 19, 2018, by CNN Wire,

WILMINGTON, N.C. ?Hurricane Florence?s rainfall has stopped, but its ?nightmare? destruction isn?t over yet.

On Wednesday, thousands of evacuees were urged to stay away from their homes, rivers kept rising, and the threat of floods remained high in North and South Carolina. Many roads remained closed, and thousands of people lack power.

President Donald Trump spoke with state and federal officials at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point on the Neuse River in North Carolina. Trump said the federal government would do everything necessary to ensure recovery. He praised first responders and said the country mourns with the families of the at least 36 people killed by Florence.

?Our state took a gut punch and our state is still reeling,? North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper told Trump, calling the storm ?epic, disastrous and widespread.?
...
More than 1,000 roads were closed across the North Carolina on Tuesday, officials said, and about 343,000 people were still without power.
