    D, I think. most immigrants of the late 1880's settled in communities where they could do the kinds of wok they did in the Old Country, For example, the people from Carrara, Italy, went to work for Vermont Marble Co., in Proctor, VT.

    The shopkeepers set up shops, the wine makers made wine, etc etc.

    You also had a lot of people from Central Europe, places like Bosnia, the modern Checz Republics, and Jewish people from all over. Most of the Christian people who came over in that wave came over for economic reasons; many of the Jewish immigrants came over to escape Witch-hunt style progroms in Russia and central Europe.

    Although most first generation immigrants spoke their native language at home, most adapted quickly to English, which is an easy language in which to learn enough to conduct everyday affairs, it is difficult in which to speak eloquently.

    Actually, in the U.S., the "rapture" didn't really get legs until the early 1900s with the publication of the Scofield Reference Bible. Cyrus Scofield wrote the premillenial dispensationalist views of John Nelson Darby right into his annotations. Things really took off in the late 1960s with the publication of Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth" which took dispensationalism into mainstream evangelical Christianity and beyond. You could say that Lindsey was Scofield's heir, Darby the "father" of rapture theology, and the hack writing team of LaHaye and Jenkins -- they of the very $ucce$$ful "Left Behind" products -- the best marketers of it so far. All in all, a pretty impressive progression of interpretation when you consider it is based on a single verse lifted out of Scripture, the aforementioned 1 Thessalonians 4:17. Other verses were then searched to back up the "rapture" concept eisegetically, that is, with a predetermined intent to make them fit this. By shoehorn, if necessary.

    The rapture theology as we know it today is a fairly new teaching. The early church believed in the second coming of Christ, and Paul did teach us that we would rise to meet Him in the air. Though the word 'rapture' is not used, it was understood that Christ was coming back for His church. But the rapture theology that is being taught today, is an invention of the premillenial crowd. Much of it was started by a mentally ill woman who lived in a mental institution, and read her Bible all the time. She began relating her 'revelations' about the end times to her pastor who visited her regularly. He was so entranced with what she was saying,he wrote it down and began sharing it with his congregation. It never occured to him, apparently, that he was getting new theology from a woman in a mental institution. This started in the middle 1800s. The documentation for these visits is kept in a southern Baptist seminary. Unfortunately, the teachings have gotten so out of hand, and so far fetched, it's nearly impossible to convince the church that this is a relatively new teaching. I am not saying there is no rapture- the early church certainly believed this way. But today's church thinks only Christians are going in the rapture. Most of the early church believed that ALL were raptured. The return of Christ signified the end of the age. The wicked were taken out and sent to judgement, the dead in Christ rise from the graves, and the rest of us rise to meet Him in the air.

    From eastern Europe and Russia came Jews and Gypsies who were fleeing progroms, and looking for a better life. Many settled in Britain, and some went further west to America.

    Irish people also fled famine and poverty in Ireland and likewise settled in the USA.
