[Genealogy of the Brumbach Families by Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh (1913)]
[E1] Johannes Henrich Brumbach, the immigrant... and family arrived at Philadelphia on the ship Neptune, Captain Waire, Sept. 30, 1754, sailing from Rotterdam and stopping at Cowes, England, for provisions as was the general custom during those long voyages, filled with innumerable hardships. A brief quotation bearing upon these hardships is instructive: "The journey for those who came from Southern Germany in 1754 lasted 'fully half a year amid such hardships as no one is able to describe adequately with their misery.' The passage from Holland to Cowes, England, alone, ofter required from two to four weeks." Careful search through the land and other records of Philadelphia, and of the adjacent counties has not yet been exhaustively made; but, so far as completed, it has failed to show that Johannes Henrich tarried long in PA before settling in the Conecocheague district, north of Hagerstown, Frederick Co., now Washington, Md., or in Franklin Co., PA., immediately adjoining to the north. As noted a few pages later, the Franklin Co. records are incomplete. It does not seem probable that he could have been the "John" enumerated in Fairfax Co., VA., in 1785. There were four children, three born in Germany. [E2] Jacob ("Jockel") b Nov. 27, 1734; about 1760 m and settled on a tract of land near "Funkstown" --Hagerstown, Md., near [C1] Johann Jacob Brumbach. About 1787 [E2] Jacob and his brother [E5] Georg (called "Yerrick" or "Yorrick") removed with the earliest pioneers to Morrison's Cove, then in Bedford Co., PA (Bedford was erected in 1771), now Blair Co., and located near the Rebecca Furnace property, occupying a large tract of land. The predatory Indian outbreaks of 1778 and 1779 caused all the early settlers to leave that locality and these brothers returned to their former homes on the Conecocheague river in Maryland--perhaps also Antrim Twp., Franklin Co., PA. After the cessation of the Indian depredations these brothers re-occupied their Bedford Co. lands. [C198] Eve (Brumbaugh) Snoeberger, b 1806, while yet in full possession of her excellent memory, in 1891wrote and also said that she "always understood from my father that my grandfather ([C1] Johann Jacob Brumbach) was a cousin to Johannes Henrich Brumbach, and Johannes [E4] was known as the stocking weaver."
