Re: Genealogy of the Rumph Family of SC
In her 1971 book entitled This Man David--a Southern Planter,published by Quality Printing Co., Inc., Abilene, Texan, Juanita Daniel Zachry gives the following date of immigration for David I Rumph on page 12:
"About this time in South Carolina, Col. Purry's early settlement of Purrysburg had proven to be an unsuccessful venture. (He was referred to as Colonel after the colonization.)When this venture failed he returned to his homeland still intent on bringing settlers to the new country.He came again to America and A. S. Salley states that he arrived in Charles Town July 13, 1735 with a party of two hundred and fifty Switzers, of which the Rumphs were a part.They came by the way of Rotterdam and Cowes, England; the trip requiring nine weeks from Rotterdam and six from Cowes.
"Salley's record names David, Jacob, Abraham, Peter and Catherine as memb ers of the Rumph family among the original immigrants.He speaks of tghem as adults and no mention is made of parents or other relatives."
A footnote on this text cites page 7 of A. S. Salley, Jr.'s Genealogy of the Rumph Family in South Carolina published by the author in 1903.
