I am researching the name "Rumfield". Peleg Rumfield was born in 1818. I believe he was born in Pennsylvania. He married Rachel Pettit April 28, 1839 in Morgan County, OH. They lived in Athens, Perry and Hocking Counties before settling in Meigs Co. about 1859.
Peleg died May 29, 1862 of illness contracted as a soldier with the 53rd OH. Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War. He was home on furlough to recuperate from his illness - service records say typhoid - when he died.

Peleg and Rachel had many offspring, some of whom moved to Texas. Some of the names follow: Francis, Ozias, Hiram, Mary Jane, Rocena, Lucinda, Thomas, Josiah, Lyman, Henry, Minerva and Irena. Peleg and Rachel's children married into the GRATE, GOMER, RUTTER, PEARCE, THOMAS, MAYS, DAVIS,BURRAGE, RITZ, and TAYLOR families.

Today Rumfields are located primarily in Texas, Pennsylvania and Ohio. These families are almost certainly connected, though I have not been able to connect Peleg to his parents in PA.

I have a lot of information on the PA Rumfields, though I have not connected Peleg, my great great grandfather, to them.

I would be happy to share/exchange information with interested parties.
