The information included in this file,
from Edouad Bompasse to and including Frederick and his move to Ohio in the
early part of the 19th century, is from a book, Lynn Albert Bumpus’
Genealogy Compilation, which includes the following paragraph: “Copyrights for
this documentation have purposely not been applied for. My feeling is that the
information contained herein is for the use of any person mentioned or
whomsoever is related by blood line to use as they wish, for genealogical
purposes only, without restriction.”
1. EDOUAD BOMPASSE was born Abt. 1603 in England or Holland, and died February 03,
1692/93 in Marshfield MA.
Edouad Bompasse, [Edward Bumpas], as he was called in the Plymouth Colony,
was the first of his name, and the only of his name, as far as can be found, to
arrive in this country. The name has taken on various spellings as follows:
Bump, Bumpass, Bumpas, Bumpers, Bumps, Bump, and Bumpus. Edouad came as a young
man on the ship Fortune, the first ship after the Mayflower. The ship Fortune
arrived at Plymouth, now Massachusetts, on Nov 10 1621.
The Bompasse name is probably of French origin, possibly
Huguenot. The old Norman and French name Bonpas, literally translates to mean
‘goodstep’ [the phrase is used to mean ‘good job’], is an aristocratic name in
Europe. The Bonpas family originated in Perpignam in the extreme southwestern
portion of France near the Mediterranean. The name probably came to England
with the Normans and again with the Huguenots. Bumpus also exists as a name
derived from Boneboz in Normandy, a Fief held from the Earls of Mellent.
One source of information states that Edouad Bompasse was
born in 1605 in St. Bartholomew Parish, London, England, died 3 Feb 1693
Marshfield, Plymouth County MA. Edouad Bompasse was probably a member of the
Protestants who fled from Holland to Amsterdam. He was reportedly with the
Pilgrims in Leyden, Holland and probably went to England with those who
returned to England after the first attempt to sail to America failed.
Williamson, in his ‘Saints and Strangers’, states that Edouad Bompasse was a
saint and a native Leydender. Leyden was located six or seven miles up the
Rhine River and was the spiritual capitol of Protestant Europe.
In 1623 Edouad received one share of land allotment as
one of those who came in the Fortune, and in 1627 a share of cattle, indicating
he was unmarried. He sold his acre of land on the north side of town in 1628
and was granted 20 acres of land at Duxbury Bay,
where he settled and built a house and palisado. In March
of 1634/45, when the boundaries of Marshfield were laid out, his property was
included. He is included in the 1643 list of men of Marshfield able to bear arms.
Sometime before Sept 1645, he sold his property to Solomon Lenner.
Edouad or Edward, as he was now called, was one of the
original proprietors of Middleboro where his son, Joseph, settled. He was also
a partner in Dartmouth lands. On July 15, 1653, Edmond Chandler of Duxbury
exchanged his rights in lands in Satuchquett for Edward’s lands and rights in
Cushenet and Coaksett. He was on the jury in 1654 and 1655 and in 1657 ‘took
the oath of fidelity as of the town of Duxbury’. After 1656 he seems to have lost
control of his properties and, through the lack of cooperation in the family,
he and Hannah were to some extent dependant on the community for their
wellbeing. Although he and his sons, as first-born in the colony, were eligible
for grants, they did not take advantage of their position.
In the next generation, several branches of the family
prospered and left good estates. It was customary in those days, during the
transfer of property from father to son that the deeds call for the father and
mother to be ‘maintained for life’. Deeds between Edward and his sons did not
contain this provision. Edward and Hannah had at least 12 children, eight being
recorded at Mansfield. In my research, 13 have been indicated. There is some
question as to whether Faith is the first child. Some researchers show that she
was born in 1630. Others say she may have been a twin to Sarah and that she
died at birth or shortly after.
“There is much more that has been written about Edward
that I have not included here, much of which is repetitive and speculative.
Above are the highlights of what I have found. [LAB].”

Most of the following information is based on my
personal research. I have attempted to be as through as possible but there may
be mistakes as this remains a work in progress.
Marlow Samuel Bumpus
BUMPUS  EDWARD BUMPUS JR. [BUMPAS],  EDWARD BUMPAS,  JOHN BUMPUS
SR  EDOUAD BOMPASSE] was born Bet 1760 and 1770 in Sharon CT. His wife may
have been a MARLOW and they may have been married in New York.
I find no record Reuben Bumpus b.
NY, 1800 is the son of Frederick Bumpus SR b. 1760/70 in Sharon CT. I base my
theory that Reuben was a son of Frederick SR on the fact that Frederick SR and
his sons John, Frederick JR, Salathiel, and daughter Isabella all moved to
Richland County, Ohio about the same time, by 1833 when Reuben’s son Frederick
was born. Several census records indicate sons of Frederick SR the correct age
to include Reuben in the home through 1830 but no names are given in the census
records before 1850, only “Head of Household”. Also, Reuben married Pricilla
Colby in 1853 in Richland County Ohio. In the 1860 census in Springfield TWP,
LaGrange County, IN, Pricilla Bumpus, 21 [the 1870 census has her birth year as
Abt 1830] and Permelia Colby, 33, were living in a house next door to Joseph
Bumpus, b. 1825, Richland County, OH., to John Bumpus, son of Frederick SR.
Even though Lynn Albert Bumpus and other sources indicate that a Reuben Bumpus,
brother of Frederick Sr., b. Sharon CT, 1760/70 had no children, the census
record for 1810 indicates a Reuben Bumpus had a male child under ten years old
living with him in Orwell, Luzern County, PA. but no record of the child’s
name. It may turn out that this Reuben is the father of Reuben Bumpus
who married in 1835 and 1853 in Richland County OH. Even though Reuben and
Frederick Sr. had the same father, the line of decent in this generation is still
in question. The possibility exists that either the older brother John or
brother Salathiel is the father but I have no evidence to indicate this
According to the Lynn Albert
“Joseph Bumpus m. Mary A. Sears.

TWP in the same county. in Abt 1850.

Note for  REUBEN BUMPUS:
Census Records show Reuben Bumpus
SR was born in NY in about 1800. The
Henry Co. Indiana Paupers Asylum has his age at death in 1873 as 70. For the
reasons stated in the notes for Frederick, I believe he was born in Albany
County N.Y. and until I can find a birth record, I will list his birth year as
1800. The marriage records of Richland Co., OH. show a marriage between Reuben
Bumpus and Jane Wells in 1835. This is the earliest date I can find Reuben’s
name in that county. Marriage and census records firmly establish Reuben and
Jane Bumpus as the father and mother of Samuel Bumpus b. 1840 as established by
the 1850 census record and some later documents I received from the National
Archives. The 1850 Census also shows in Reuben’s home, a son, Frederick, born
abt 1833, indicating an earlier marriage.
Reuben and Pricilla Bumpus moved with the family to Boluntsville,
Henry County Indiana in 1856/57.
Blountsville is in the NE corner
of Henry County and less than five miles from the farm of N J Hunt in
Losentville, Randolph County, Indiana, where 20-year-old Samuel Bumpus was

[The records show that on 10 Dec.
1867 Elizabeth and Reuben Bucannon Bumpus were released from the Henry Co. IN.
Paupers Asylum. It is my belief that Samuel took Reuben Bumpus Jr. to Holt Co.,
MO. Samuel Bumpus arrived in Jasper Co., MO. in early 1868. Reuben B Bumpus is
in the 1870 census living with 30 year old John Strough, b. IN., in Union, Holt
Co., MO. This is likely the same John Strough listed in 1860, 19 years old and
living with John Strough SR. in Fall Creek, Henry Co., IN. He may have been a
friend of Samuel and/or the Bumpus family in Henry Co., IN.]

The LAB Compilation includes a
daughter Pricilla Bumpus but I think he included her because Pricilla Bumpus is
living next door in the same home as Permelia Colby. Reuben’s wife Pricilla’s
maiden name was Colby.
The “1882 History of LaGrange
County, Indiana” by F.A. Battey & Co., Springfield Township states:
“Josephus Bumpus, son of John
Bumpus, Native of New Youk, of Welsh descent, was born Oct 25,1825, in Richland
County, Ohio. Mr. Bumpus is a cooper by trade and came to this country in the
spring of 1846, location at Onterio where he was employed the first season at
his trade, then in his shop until 1849, when he rented the “Widow Newton” farm,
north of Ontario. About a year later he purchased land in this township. That
has reached it’s present improved state by Mr. Bumpus’ industry. December 10,
1848 Mr. Bumpus was married to Mary A. Sears, who was born in New York, June
10, 1832. She came to this country with her father Chancey Sears in about 1836
and lived with Judge Luther Newton from the age of six years until her
marriage. Mr. And Mrs. Bumpus have seven children – Savilla, Viola, Roderick,
Nellie, Carrie, Joseph, and Cora.”

Notes for SAMUEL BUMPUS:
Samuel Bumpus was born in
Richland County, OH in about 1840, according to the earliest records I have
found. Some later records put his birth year as late as 1844 but the 1860
census shows his younger sister, Mary, was born in 1841 or 42. Samuel moved
with the family to Blountsville, Henry County, Indiana, in about 1856 where
they established a farm. 1860 finds Samuel working on the NY Hunt farm near
Losentville, Randolph County, Indiana, about five miles from the Bumpus farm.
Samuel’s military record shows him joining the 8th Indiana Volunteer
Infantry in Sept 1861. Depositions taken during a 17-year investigation into
the application of a soldier’s pension and later a widow’s pension, tell a
fairly complete story of the rest of Samuel’s life.
Samuel joined the Army with at
least one boyhood friend from Indiana and they mustered in at Indianapolis.
Their unit was sent to the SW District and on that march Samuel Bumpus and at
least one other soldier contracted measles. Samuel was hospitalized for three
months. After his return to the 8th, his voice was described as
‘weak’ and ‘unable to speak above a whisper’. This condition lasted for the
remainder of his life. He was often in the hospital after that until his death
on 13 August 1885. [In a recent conversation with a doctor, I was told that the
measles likely destroyed his immune system.] Upon his return to his Army unit,
Samuel was assigned as ‘Wagon Master’. That was probably due to his weakened
condition. Samuel spent considerable time in hospitals during the remainder of
the war and his entire life, including the hospital at Sarcoxi, MO. near
Carthage and the Lattin farm, where he returned in 1868. The 8th
Indiana was in many skirmishes in Missouri and some major battles in Missouri,
Arkansas and throughout the Mid West and the South, including the Battles of
Pea Ridge, Helena, and theSiege of Vicksburg, where Samuel was wounded in the
left leg below the knee ‘at a place called Champions Hill’. This wound didn’t
hit the bone but was severe enough to put him in the hospital for six months
with a ‘poisoned leg’. He was then transferred to the Invalid Corp and mustered
out shortly after in late 1864. He returned to the family farm in Henry County,
Indiana. He also spent time in Randolph County.
Samuel Bumpus married Catherine
Isabelle Lattin in 1869. They had two children; George James in 1870
and Clara Manda in about 1863, Catherine and the children were staying with her
sister, Amanda Long, in Humboldt, Allen County, Kansas in 1876 while Samuel was
working in Carthage. Samuel returned to the Long farm the evening before
Catherine died. Samuel returned Catherine to Carthage to be buried near her
father, probably Catherine’s wish, in the Sidensticker Graveyard also known as
the Indian/White Graveyard. While Samuel was gone, Amanda Long gave the
children to the county agent who gave them to John and Mary Thompson of Cottage
Grove TWP, Allen County, Kansas, near Humboldt, to be reared as their own. From
the 1880 census I learned that Clara had been given the Thompson name and
George was still a Bumpus. A fifth child in the Thompson home in 1880 was
17-year-old Elwood Baker, farmhand, later to become the husband of Clara who
was using the name Clara Amanda Bumpus when they married. In a Deposition taken
in the 1890s Clara Manda said she added the A to her middle name ‘because it
sounded better’ and ‘I think I saw her father once after my mother died’.
Samuel returned to Carthage after
the death of Catherine and the loss of his children and was working on a farm
with Mary Amanda Ballinger when he entered to the Jasper County Poor Farm in
1880. Pregnant Amanda Ballinger was also there in 1880. They were married in
1881 in Jasper County. Samuel left the Poor Farm from time to time to work
while Mary Amanda remained there until sometime in late 1883 or early 1884. They
had two daughters together; Lilly May, on 8 June, 1882, and Cora Lee, 31 July,
1885, almost two weeks before Samuel died on 13 Aug 1885. Samuel and Mary
Bumpus had been living on the Rolston farm near Knights Station, Carthage,
Jasper County, Missouri, for about 18 months when Samuel got sick the last
time. He died a few days later. Mary returned to the Poor Farm the same month
where she stayed until12 Oct. 1894 when she went to live with Mr. Estes. The
rest of her life she was ‘too week to take care of herself’. Samuel was
described as ‘able-bodied’ before he joined the Army and as ‘sickly and weak’
after the war. Samuel was alternately listed in the census records as ‘Farm
Labor’ and ‘House Carpenter’. Mary put the two girls up for adoption in about
1886 and she died in 1911 of TB.
