Family Stories:

In about 1760 married and settled on a tract of land near "Funkstown" --Hagerstown, Md., near Johann Jacob Brumbach (a cousin). About 1777Jacob and his brother Georg (called "Yerrick" or "Yorrick")moved 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 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.
