Adam Ruhlman 1801 - 18 Nov 1873

I am looking for this most elusive ancestor. I have seen his name alternately spelled "Rhulman," "Ruhlman," "Rhuelman," "Rhuleman," "Rulman," and probably even more than I can now recall.

Adam was born c1801 (per 1850 Federal Census) in South Carolina. He died 18 November 1873, apparently in Trenton, NJ. I have no idea what he was doing in NJ - he seemed to spend the majority of his life in Jefferson County, VA (now WV). He married Elizabeth Allee probably in the late 1820-s early 1830's, given the births of his children. He and Elizabeth had at least 4 children (1) Caroline Virginia, born c1836; married Samuel Van Buren Strider c1852; died 17 October 1889; (2) Adam, born c 1838; (3) John T. born c1840; and (4) William Tyler born cOct 1841. I say that he married in the late 1820's - early 1830's, for the obituary for Caroline stated that she was the "youngest" daughter of Adam - but, as you can see, I can find no other daughters for him as of

Adam was apparently an "armorer" during the Civil War, purchasing weapons for the Union Army; and according to his obituary, he was "formerly of Harper's Ferry & longtime inspector at US Armory."

I would so appreciate any information or help anyone might provide; and I thank you in advance for your help.
