The Internal Migration: European Immigrants in Rural America, 1850-1880

To study the penetration of Hudson Township, Ohio, by German and Irish railroad laborers from 1850-1880 in order to discover the rural immigrant's process of adjustment. Economic and social incorporation into an agricultural community will be emphasized. Changing patterns of ethnic landholding, farm tenancy and nonfarm occupations, shares of community wealth, progress of ethnic intermarriage, and absorption of immigrants into the community's institutional life will all be examined in this study.
