(1) Immigration. The family of Martin (Roppel) Ruple (1737 to 1789-90)has been more thoroughly researched ... Martin Roppel, along with his wife Barbara Schaub(lin) and children Johannes J. Roppel and Elizabeth, immigrated to Charles Town, SC in 1772 arriving on the Ship, Sincere Friend, Robert King Master, Lewis de St. Pierre, immigrant recruiter on board this ship. Janie REvell's book on Protestant Immigrants to SC provided the immigrant's name spelled "Ruppel" - fellow passengers from Switzerland are shown on both the emigration list of Switzerland and the immigration list arriving in Charles Town in 1772. See Faust and Brumbaugh books concerning Lists of immgrants from Switzerland in the 18th century. See also First Families, Orangeburg German-Swiss Genealogical Society, for "Ruple" for a more complete article with citations of authority. Martin's father was Michel Roppel and mother was Ursula Horand, of Fullinsdorf, BL, CH.

2. Settlement The Ruples owned Ruples Tavern shown on Mills Atlas of 1820 on the Charleston Road SE of Orangeburg a few miles. A descendant son of Martin (Roppel) Ruple - Jacob Ruple - is shown in the booklet, Orangeburg Documents, which references three archival documents at the SC Dept of Archives, Columbia: land, War of 1812, and Tax documents from the burned county of Orangeburg.

3. DNA Study. A DNA study has linked Martin's descendants to a Swiss cousin on 65 of 67 DNA markers - see
