Crubaugh Family Genealogy Forum
After I posted a note on the Crubaugh GenForum during December 1999, additional facts have been learned about the Grumbachs who immigrated in 1749 from Boebingen, Germany to Philadelphia aboard the ship Dragon. Conrad Grumbach (1710-1781) brought his family and three Grumbach boys aged 18, 15 and 12, none of whom were siblings. They all were probably his nephews. Only Conrad and Jacob (1731-1781), the oldest boy and third child of Bartholomaus Grumbach and Anna Maria Haenichin, signed the oath of allegiance since traditionally only males older than 16 did so.
The descendants of Conrad and the younger boys have all come to use Crumbaugh as their family name. However, the descendants of Jacobís children use a variety of spellings. All the Grubaughs in the USA are descended from Jacobís oldest son Michael (1752-1844). All the Crobaughs are descended from his second and third sons, George (1754-ca 1820) and Jacob (1767-1841). Likewise, all the Crubaughs are descended from his last two sons, Frederick (ca 1774-1820/30) and John (1782-1850/60). There was also a daughter, Mary Crubaugh (1775-1852), who married Joseph Frederick in 1796, and two other children, of whom nothing is known after 1820.
I would be pleased to share my database listing almost 3000 descendants of Jacob, including many e-mail addresses, with anyone who would care to contact me at email@example.com. If you would provide any relevant information about your ancestors and/or descendants I would be very pleased to add it to my database.
