Bump Family Genealogy Forum
I had hoped this was my Reuben. Sorry for the mess I made of the earlier post, I did it way after my bed time. I know better. Do you know the names of your Reuben's children and his birth date? I'm not at all sure I have the correct Reuben. My great great grandfather was also named Reuben and was born in NY in 1800, according to the census records. He moved to Richland Co., OH. before 1830 where my great grandfather was born in 1840. Frederick Bumpus, the brother of the Reuben Bump that founded Bumpville in Bradford Co., PA., had moved to Richland Co., OH. before 1820. Until recently, I assumed my g g grandfather was the son of Frederick but a recent discovery made me suspect that my Reuben was Frederick's nephew. As Frederick's brother Reuben was the only brother old enough to be a father in 1800, I am researching him. I may find that I am way off but I have to check him out.
Thanks for your reply, Marlow
