Hello my name is Sandra Ralston. My mother's maiden name is Funderburk. Her father was Isaac Appleton Funderburk and her grandfather was John Harrison Funderburk. I would like some information on Hans Devauld Funderburk, he was 14 years old when he left Leipzig, Germany with his parents and 6 brothers and probably 2 sisters. They were on the ship "The Golden Beaver" at Hamburg. The Golden Beaver was shipwrecked off the Carolina coast. He lost his whole family.He was rescued and brought to Charleston,South Carolina and was sold as an indentured servant to a planter to pay passage. This may have been at Orangeburg where there was a colony of Germans.In 1755 he married Catherine Laney. If any of this information sounds familiar please e-mail me at: Vondenburg@aol.com.
