What tribe are the people who immigrated to America from Lower
Saxony in Germany in the 1700’s?
Those German immigrants were most likely from the tribe of Manasseh, in my viewpoint. The tribe of Manasseh went into exile in two distinct halves. The half-tribe living east of the Jordan River in Gilead went captive a number of years before Samaria was besieged and taken (II Kings 15:29). The half-tribe of Manasseh living west of the Jordan River is never mentioned in the Bible as having gone into an Assyrian captivity even though it was clearly gone from the land at a later date (II Kings 17:18). My books cite both secular and biblical evidence in concluding that many of the Israelites went into exile voluntarily to escape the last Assyrian invasion. II Esdras 13:40-45 states that many Israelite escaped the Assyrian invasion and went to a far-distant land to make a new start. Daniel 9:7 acknowledges that the tribes of Israel scattered into many different nations; they did not all go into one location. Daniel states that some were in Persia where Daniel lived (the Israelites who did go into captivity) but others were living in locations far from Persia (the Israelites who went elsewhere to escape captivity).
My books present evidence that each half of the tribes of Manasseh took separate migration paths into Europe. One half went with the Ephraimites into the British Isles and the other half remained on mainland Europe in Germany. The name of Isaac (“Saxon” or “Saxony” in Latin usage) was placed both in the British Isles and Germany. When the USA was first founded, many immigrants came to the USA from either the British Isles or Germany (some of my own ancestors came to America in the 1700s from the city of Kassel in the German State of Hesse). It is my belief that God reunited the two halves of Manasseh by inspiring them to migrate to the American colonies, fulfilling the prophecy in Genesis 48:19 that Manasseh would become a single great people or nation (the USA) in the latter days while Ephraim would become a multitude or company of nations (i.e. the British Commonwealth of nations).
