    Jamie dear, if you call your bank to ask them to cable you some money, because your purse was stolen while you were on vacation, the first thing they are going to ask you is your birth date and your mother or grandmother's maiden name.

    If I was a crook I could find that out from your web site, call the bank, tell them I was your husband, we were on vacation, your purse was stolen and would they please cable me your money. That is why we don't put first names or birth dates of living people on genealogy sites.

    Your grandfather James is on

    Seven people have Ed and Ora on RWWC,

    Enter Surname = Fuson, Given = Ora, Spouse = Mason and leave the rest blank. Write to them all with the dates and data for the NON-LIVING people I found for you. You can give names, but no dates, for the living people.

    Look for Ed & Ora's kids on the RWWC SSDI (above) and Ky death index.

    You may find that they are dead. I'll let you do that, since I've had enough fun for the day.

    As fate woudl have it, we have a common ancestor: Jacob Rumph (pronounced YAH-kub ROOM-F, incidentally). I can tell you that his family was from Switzerland, they were Protestants who were intermarried with numerous other German and French-Huguenot families who came to South Carolina in 1735 where they founded a villaged called Purrysburg, and later (by 1745) were in Orangeburg, SC, where many of their descendants remain to this day. In 1820 many of the Rumphs and other families from the German region of Orangeburg, SC (surnames include Dittmyer, Deramus, Stoudenmire, Roy, Golson, and DeBardelaben) relocated to Alabama, where they settled in Autauga County. (The telephone books for Autauga Co, AL and Orangeburg Co, SC, contain many of the same odd surnames, including Rumph, that are rarely found in other parts of the country.)

    Depending on which Jacob Rumph you're descended from (it didn't have his dates), here's an ancestry:

    Jacob Rumph II July 9 1752-October 10, 1812

    m. AnnaMaria Harrisperger (1756-1835)

    He was born and died in Orangeburg, SC. He and his wife had at least one son and at least three daughters. The son was named James (the English version of Jacob) and he married Mary Golson; I'm descended through this line.

    His father was

    Jacob Rumph (1727-1785), who was born in Bern, Switzerland and emigrated to SC with his parents in 1735.

    This Jacob was married to Anne Dattwyler (1730-1823) and had at least 8 children.

    His wife's father was named Melchior Dattwyler and Jacob's father was named Karl Heinz Rumph. Both were born in Switzerland, probably around 1700, and both were still living in the 1750s, but that's the extent of my info on them.

    Hope this helps.
