OK - I found the proof.
George Rummel (1739-1810) moved in 1778 to Staban twp, Adams County PA (outside Gettysburg)
Barbara, his next to the youngest daughter, married Christian Culp
Culp Hill was a much fought over point on the tip of the Union Army fishhook defense at Gettysburg. The Rummel Farm (home of John Rummel in 1863), of the Cavalry Field is about 2 1/2 miles east of Culp Hill, on the Hanover Road. There were major fighting in both places the 3rd day of the battle.
from the Culp family:
Christian (3) was the fourth-born of Christopher and Marie Catherine. Christian married Barbara Rummel who was raised at the Rummel farm at East Cavalry Field about three miles east of Gettysburg. It was at the Rummel farm that the Union cavalry stopped Jeb Stuartís Confederate cavalry from gaining the Hanover Road and attacking Union wagon trains during the Pickett-Pettigrew-Trimble Charge. Christian and Barbara lived at 151 York Street in a house purchased
from James and Mary Gettys in 1795. Christian was a wheelwright and also a member of the local fire company. His leather brigade fire bucket is on display at the Adams County Historical Society.
so - the youngest daughter of George Rummel, was raised on the Rummel Farm, the Cavalry Field, so - George Rummel lived there.
Now, the next thing is to find who the John Rummel was son of - if it was Jacob, eldest son of George Rummel -
thank goodness for internet!! and Google!!
Merle C Rummel
