Stumpfs and Stumps over three centuries

Tracing ancestors is a much simpler, faster undertaking than it was even 30 years ago. That is, as long as those ancestors had reason to write, or to be photographed, or to record life events such as births, marriages, deaths. But there is still a bit of fuzziness as to the first immigration from Germany, or Switzerland. Gathered here are those few records and hints of various Stumps and Stumpfs who lived here over the past 300 years.

The Reverend Adam Stump, D.D., sits for the camera, undoubtedly a Bible in his hands. He lived from 1854 to 1922, mostly in York County, PA. To his right is his mother, Mary Geesey Stump, 1829-1907. She was married to Adam Stump ("senior") who lived from 1829 to 1907. Adam Stump

This was the farm of Adam Stump (1829-1907) and his son John Henry Stump (1871-1943). John Henry was the brother of Rev. Adam Stump, who was the father of Raymond Neff Stumpf.
