The disbursement of the Samuel Swan Estate confirmed names and relationships and reminded me that sometimes ledgers are sometimes wrong.

Findings

One eighth was disbursed to seven individuals,

  1. Children of Samuel
  2. Children of Edward Burch
  3. Anna
  4. Margaret
  5. Children of Henry
  6. Child of Philip
  7. Thomas

The disbursement document was missing a line regarding Elizabeth who was mentioned in the will. I suspect her not being mention was an oversight, apparently by the Register of Wills. The sum of the individual amounts disbursed do not total the bottom-line total and is off by about £33, which is a one-eighth share. So, I think when he transcribed the original document into his ledger he missed a line.

I find it interesting that John, the one child that didn’t receive a share of the sundry property did receive the greatest value of materials, He received a colt, bed, furniture, and three enslaved people.

Samuel required Thomas to give consent to John’s selling or disposing of any of the property which suggests to me that John was mentally challenged,

Wills and probate records are generally a gold mine of information. The will of Samuel Swann is no exception. It provides key information, particularly that he had five children living and four children, who had issue, that had died before he created his will in 1807. One of the five children required being cared for.

From the Maryland Register of Wills, Saint Mary’s County, comes the following:

Trümpi – Surname Saturday

Surname Saturday

Name Origin

It seems there are too few instances of the surname Trümpi for anyone to know its meaning. Ancestry, Forebears, and Genealogy Bank, all have generic pages that indicate where surnames typically come from.

Geographical

There are only 158 people with the surname Trümpi in the world[i].  There are another 79, mostly in the United State that don’t use the umlaut. The greatest number of folks with the surname are people who spell it Trumpy, for which there are 497, mostly in the United States. There are another 217 that spell the name with the umlaut, Trümpy.

There are no Trümpi in the United States and only 15 people with the surname without the umlaut. The variation most common in the United States is Trumpy there are about 395 people with that surname in the United States.

Within the United States, the largest number of folks with the surname are 104 Trumpy’s in Wisconsin.

My Wife’s Direct McAllister Ancestors

Historical

1920

My wife’s great-grandmother, Bertha Barbara (Trumpi) Huber immigrated in 1903 in the care of her aunt and uncle. She settled in a Swiss Colony near Promrose, Dane County, Wisconsin. She married John Huber in 1905 and the family moved first to Alabama then to Michigan. So, by 1920, she was a Huber.

Of Bertha’s three brothers, only one, Ernst Lorrain Trumpi, appears to have immigrated to the United States.

So, it is my guess that many of the Trumpi’s in the United States and the Trümpi’s in the Canton of Glarus are related.

My wife’s known Trümpi relatives.

My records have identified 120 direct-line descendants of Bernhard Trümpi (the eldest).

My Start of a Trumpi Surname Study

Census Sunday
Darling-Huber-Trumpi

In continuing my research on the Trumpi line I realized there weren’t too many Trumpi’s that came to the United States. So, I thought I’d broaden my understanding of the Trumpi family line in hopes that eventually I would discover a connection of these other Trumpi’s and my wife’s Trumpi line in Switzerland. Additionally, this process will broaden my tree allowing for better understanding of DNA Matches. First I looked at the Census Records.

Future Trumpi Activities

I am particularly interested in the Trumpi’s that were born in Switzerland. So, I will look closer at each of them. That includes:

  • Barbara Trumpi,          b. 1893.
  • Fred Trumpi,               b. 1870.
  • Kate Trumpi,               b. 1857.
  • John Trumpi,               b. 1863.
  • Jacob Trumpi,             b. 1860/61.
  • Frederick Trumpi,       b. Mar 1848
  • Thomas Trumpi,          b. 1842.
  • Jacob Trumpi,             b. 1839.
  • Fred Trumpi,               b. 1813.

I may take a look at the children of those individuals. Sometimes the birth and/or Marriage records indicate the birthplace of the individual’s parent. First on that group is Frederick/Fred, born in 1885/86. One of the Census records indicated he was born in Switzerland, although the other ones indicate he was born in Maryland.

There were three Trumpi’s that I not very interested in. Frank was born in Italy, Gabriel in Germany, and George in Lithuania. None of these appeared to have any connection to the Swiss Trumpi’s, so I’ll ignore them for now.

Ancestor Sketch – James Walter

Darling-Swayze-Walter
By Don Taylor

It is always difficult to follow a person’s records when their name is recorded differently over the years.  James’ surname was recorded as “Waters,” “Walter,” and “Walters” over the many years. I have settled on Walter because it appears to be the surname he was buried with. James was a Patriot, serving in a Virginia artillery detachment during the Revolutionary War.

Howell/Darling – Ancestor #102
