They are largely of scottish extraction.-the present-day amish are not largely of scottish extraction. they are largely of germanic-swiss extraction. they are the direct descendants of the anabaptist of 16th century europe who, among other things, rejected infant baptism, advocated complete freedom of religious belief and practice, believed in the separation of church and state, and were pacifists opposed to military service of any kind they began arriving in america in sizable numbers during the early 18th century, when their first permanent settlements were established in pennsylvania. the largest local concentrations of amish are in holmes county, ohio, and lancaster county, pennsylvania. although the u.s. census bureau does not track the u.s. amish population, estimates by journalists and scholars place their population as approximately 200,000, spread across more than twenty states.
