9781332299546: Moravian Journals: Relating to Central New York, 1745-66 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Moravian Journals: Relating to Central New York, 1745-66

In this volume are given all the Moravian journals relating to Central New York, beginning with 1745, when the first visit was made to Onondaga. This concerned the removal of the Shekomeko converts from Dutchess County. The mission there, commenced in 1740, was legally closed in 1745, and the converts went first to Bethlehem, Pa., and then to Gnadenhutten. As most of Pennsylvania was subject to the Five Nations, their consent was necessary and this was obtained. In October, 1859, the Moravian Historical Society erected monuments at Shekomeko (town of Pine Plains) and at an adjoining missionary site in the town of North East, N. Y.

Meantime Count Zinzendorf was thinking of the Five Nations, with many odd conceits. In an address in London, March 7, 1743, he said: "The Second Nation, and which properly governs the rest, is the Nation of the Onondagoes. Those are Philosophers and such as among us are called Deists. They are brave honest People who keep their word; and their general weakness is that they 2 delight in Heroick Deeds; and this will be the main Difficulty in the way of their Conversion, to make them forget these their heroick Notions; for they have the Principles, of the old Romans, that they look upon every one as a miserable Creature, scarce worth a Thought, who will not submit himself to them. ... The Two other Nations which are stiled Children, are the Cajugas and Oneydoes, who regulate themselves after these Two Nations."

Caxhayen, an Onondaga chief, lodged with him in Philadelphia in 1742, for two weeks, and at a subsequent conference the Count received a fathom of wampum (186 white beads), which became Bishop Spangenberg's credentials at Onondaga in 1745. Meantime several attempts to reach that place from Albany failed. Coming by a different route Spangenberg was successful. David Zeisberger was in every party.
