Way back in pre-history I got interested in geneology reseach a bit and one thing I discovered is that there were two or three main places in N. Europe where ships would set sail from, with three main ports here as the destination, NYC (the main one), Philly (2nd), and the Carolina's (3rd). Which would be an indication that the early immigrants down your way came from the same places those of Western Penn came from. Darmstad (sp?) was a significant place, as was one in England, so it would be natural for there to be similarities in dialect.

So Bent's explanation also makes sense for down your way.
