RUMP, RUMPH, RUMPFF I am seeking information on Germans in Valhermoso Springs, Morgan County, AL, around 1870. My ancestor, Augusta Christopher William RUMP (or RUMPH or RUMPFF) was a carpenter there in 1870. He was born 30 Oct 1832 in Germany. He is listed on the 1870 census with his wife Sophia (HENDRIX), b. 8 Dec 1836 in Germany. Sophia arrived in New York aboard the America 18 Jul 1868 with three children. According to the 1900 census, Augusta arrived in 1867. According to family legend, he was a guard on a ship and shot the captain who was either testing the guards or actually stealing from the ship. This incident made it necessary for him to leave the ship in America. According to the passenger list, Sophia was from Oberhammelwarden, which is near Elsfleth in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Germany. However, the 1870 census says they were from Prussia, which did not include this region. Were there any other Germans living in Morgan County at this time, and if so, were they from the same region(s) in Germany? Thanks.

I have just discovered the Morgan County Page. I was born in Morgan County in 1941 and have lots of roots there. My mother was placed for adoption to Joe and Ida (Wright) Echols of Somerville. I know who my natural grandparents are as they are supposedly related to this Ida Wright Echols. My quest is to learn more about the heritage of the Ida Wright Echols. Ida was born in 1873 to William Wright and Lillian Taylor in Morgan County. I am trying to find who William Wright might be. My natural grandfather was named Ernest Wheeler Wright who was born in Gurley, Madison Co, AL in 1898 and when his first wife died (Jessie Lee Haney) in Lacey Springs, Grandfather Ernest adopted my mother Mary Lee to Joe and Ida Echols. I have the adoption papers from the Judge Of Probate. I have traced my Grandfather Ernest Wright's genealogy back to 1476 in England but cannot prove the true connection of Ernest to the William Wright, father of Ida. Maybe someone in Morgan Co is related to this William Wright. Thanks, Alvie L. Davidson

I'm trying to prove that Mary DOSS of Pittsylvania Co. Va. (b. 1760s) was the wife of George VEST and moved with him to Hancock Co. GA. ca. 1795- 97. George VEST died by 1799, leaving several children including John, James, Obediah VEST and others. They were all minors when their father died. Samuel BARRON was the administrator of George Vest's estate; he died while still administering and estate was taken over by John BARRON. Last mention of Mary calls her Mary RODGERS. I believe the RODGERS-VEST family moved to Morgan Co. by about 1810-12. There may have been another VEST brother with them.
