Hans Heinrich Raudenbusch was born January 6, 1712 in Steinsfurt (located along the Neckar River near Stuttgart). He married Anna Mary (born 1713 – another source names her Anna Maria Becker).

Hans Heinrich  arrived in America at the port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Colony on September 30, 1732 aboard the Ship “Dragon”. He was accompanied by at least one brother and other siblings came on other ships at about the same time.

These settlers went by their middle names on most government records and Heinrich was a co-founder of Conawago German Baptist Church in 1738, the the Mummert Meeting House for a Brethern Congregation in 1741.

Just about all of the established Raudenbusch, Roudabush, Roudebush, Ruebush, and Rubush families are descended from Heinrich or his brothers.

Children of Heinrich and Anna Maria Becker Raudebusch:

JOHANN HEINRICH RAUDEBUSCH (Ruebush):

Born: 1735  Hamilton, Lancaster, PA
Married Anna Marie “Mollie” Kellar
(Born Mar 1736  York, Pennsylvania,
Died 20 Jul 1815  Rockingham, VA
Buried Frieden’s Church, Harrisonburg, Rockingham, VA)
Died: 1784  Hagerstown, Washington, MD

Notes:

John Ruebush: It is estimated that John Ruebush (the spelling used by most of his descendants) was born about l735, using his wife’s date of birth as a criterion. In his father’s will, he is called the oldest son.18He married Anna Marie Keller, who was known as “Mollie”.74 Mollie’s father may have been the John Keller who arrived on the Ship Princess Augustis on September 16, 1736, but this has not been verified.143 John was a farmer and miller.75He and his wife settled near Hagerstown, Maryland.76 In the Proceedings of the Committee of Observation for Elizabeth Town District, Washington County”, he is listed on page 240 as app1ying for a licensing suit on September 18, 1775.86 John died in I787.78 The tradition is tbat John drowned.79 On May 27, 1788, Michael, John’s brother, was appointed guardian of three of John’s children: Margaret, Susannah and George.80 Mollie remained in Mary1and for a time. The 1790 Maryland census lists Mary Roudebush living with a male under 16 and another female, probably her children, in Washington County.81 In 1792, however, she reconveyed her land in Maryland back to Jonathan Hager.82 She then went to Rockingham County, Virginia, and scttled near Frieden’s Reformed Church, which is about three miles east of Mt. Crawford, Va. Mollie, John and their children had been members of Zion Reformed Church in Maryland.77 When Mollie arrived in Virginia, Frieden’s Church was a log building built in 1792. It is now a brick structure. Mollie is buried in Frieden’s church yard,83and her tombstone states that she was born in March, 1736 and died on July 20, 1815.143 Mr. Joseph K. Ruebush erected this stone.85

Buried Myers Cemetery, Goshen, Clermont, Ohio

Notes:
Daniel Roudebush was born in 1749,97 and, in 1774, he married Christina Schnebley or Snively who was born in Pennsylvania in 1759.98 She is said to have been of “Dutch” descent and a niece of Dr. Snively, a well known physician in the Colonies at that time. 99 He and Christina had a farm in Frederick County, Maryland,100 and he was an Associator in Frederick County during the Revolution- ary War.103 The following story is related about his participation in the events of that period :
In Frederick County three Tories were tried and found guilty of treason to the Colonies by the County Court of Oyer and Terminer, and Mr. Roudebush was one ef the jurymen to convict them and the youngest man on the panel, being then only twenty-seven years old. These Tories were sentenced under the old Maryland Colonial Statutes to be hanged, drawn and quartered, but the latter two forms were dispensed with at the execution. As there were rumors of Tories coming to Frederick to release the condemned men, the Court summoned a posse comitatus of three hundred men to be on duty at the jail until the hanging took place and to guard the same. Mr. Roudebush was the tenth man summoned and was on duty sixteen days and witnessed the execution. He was afterward called out for two weeks as a Militiaman to perform guard duty with his battalion at Frederick, Maryland.104 In 1796 Daniel, with his family, emigrated to Bryant’s Station, Kentucky where they remained until 1799.105Then he bought 500 acres fron General James Taylor of Newport, Kentucky in Stark’s survey (No. 2755) in Clermont County,Ohio at two dollars per acre.106 Today, Goshen, Ohio stands on part of this grant.107 In December of 1803, Daniel became lost in the woods while searching for his horses. His neighbors became alarmed because of the density of the forest and its wild beasts. Searching parties were sent out in all directions for him but were unsuccessfu1 After wandering for three days without food, on the fourth day he found Ephraim McAdam’s cabin near Williamsburg, Ohio, which was about seventeen miles from his home. After McAdam fed him (it is said that the hot bread he was given affected his mind; perhaps he ate it too voraciously), he lent Daniel a horse and he rode to his home, arriving five days after his original departure. He never completely recovered from the effects of this exposure. He died in the following October (1804). He is buried in Myers Cemetery, Goshen, Ohio,109 and his grave is marked as a Revolutionary War veteran.110

DANIEL WAS A REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIER AND FARMER. REFERENCE

56TH N S D A R REPORT. THE OFFICIAL ROSTER III SOLDIERS OF THE
AMERICAN REVOLUTION WHO LIVED IN THE STATE OF OHIO. 977.1 M23AD VOLUME 3. DANIEL’S FAMILY IS THE “CLERMONT COUNTY, OHIO” BRANCH OF THE ROUDEBUSH

Elizabeth (or E1iza) Roudebush is mentioned in her father’s will as the wife of John Baker.111 A John Baker, who was over 45, is listed in the 1800 Census in Berwick Township of Adams, Co., Pa.) along with his wife, who was also over 45 (So she was born before 1755).114

Catharine (or Caty) Roudebush married Christian Grove.111 On October 1, 1782) Henry sold 116 acres of land along the Great Conawago Creek to Christian Grove for four hundred pounds.112 A Christian Grove, who was over 45, is listed in the 1800 Census of Berwick Towship of Adams County, Pa., along with his wife who was also ever 45 (born before 1755).113

Solomon Roudebush was one of the dispossessed sons mentioned in his father’s will,111 but nothing more is known about him

Michael Roudebush was born November 21, 1753. 117 His first wife’s name was Juliana, 118 and her maiden name may have been Bigler. Mark Bigler arrived in Pennsylvania in 1733, settling on a farm of 200 acres in Lancaster County. Later he moved to Frederick County, Maryland, and his will, which was proved in 1787, names eleven children, and the eighth listed married a person named “Randabush.”119 A great-grandson of Michael was named, “W. Bigler Roudebush.”120
In the Spring of 1785, Michael is listed on the muster roll of the Eighth Company, Seventh Battalion of the York County Militia. 121 He received depreciation pay as a member of the Continental Line. 122
He was taxed in Berwick Township of York County from 1779 to 1783. 123 According to the terms of his father’s will, which was probated March 25, 1784, Michael was given the plantation that Henry had settled. Later, on May 27, 1788, he was appointed guardian of three of the children of his brother John: Margaret, Susannah and George. 124
On June 7, 1794, Michael and Juliana sold their farm in Berwick Township to Anthony Deardorff of Reading Township for 1200 pounds.125 We find references to him in Bedford County in the years 1797 and 1798.128 and the Pennsylvania census for the years 1800 to 1830 list him in Woodbury Township of Bedford County. 129-132 In 1804 he was taxed for 300 acres, three horses and three cows in Bedford County.128 On June 2, 1807,126 Michael bought 200 acres of land in what was then Cumberland County,127 but which became Bedford County, from Daniel Beecher and his wife, Catherine.126 In 1804 he was patented 200 acres and warranted 100 acres in Bedford County, and in 1811 he was patented another 200 acres there.128
By 1816, it appears that he had married a second time. He was warranted 100 acres of land in that year, and his wife is called Margaret in the Deeds Book.134 She had apparently been married first to a man named Kenney since Michael named his “stepson Alexander W. Kenney of Martinsburg” to be the executor of a conveyance of land to John Kirschman and Nicholas Strayer.135
In 1817 he was the lowest bidder for land in Bedford County that had been confiscated from Benjamin J. Newman,133 but by 1826, Michael appears to have fallen on lean times since 200 acres of his land was sold to satisfy a very small debt of $20.26 to John Teiter.136
Michael died about 1733 in Bedford County since a caveat to the land transaction with Kirschman and Strayer mentioned above, dated 1733, says that Michael is deceased.135

JACOB ROUDEBUSH SR.
The Fifth Generation and My Direct Ancestor:

Born 1752  York, Pennsylvania
Married Anna Rickstacker (Born 1753  Pennsylvania,
Died Carrollton, Carroll, Ohio
Buried Farm Cemetery, Carrollton, Carroll, Ohio)

Tobias Roudebush
Christina Roudebush

Mary Roudebush
Jacob Roudabush
Ann Roudebush
Susannah Roudebush
Jesse Ray Roudebush
Lydia Roudebush
Abraham Roudebush
Died 1837  Washington Twp., Carroll, Ohio

Buried Farm Cemetery, Carrollton, Carroll, Ohio

Notes:
Jacob Roudebush was born in 1752,87 and married Anna Rickstacker of Pennsy1vania.88 He had a farm of 100 acres in Berwick Township of York County, at least during the years 1779 through 1782.89 It appears that he bought another farm in Cumberland Township (or did this part of Berwick Township become Cumberland Township?) in 1783 since a Jacob Roudebush was taxed there in that year. 90 He may have been the Jacob Rodpouch who was a member of the York County Militia Company in Dover Township under Captain John Sharp in the years 1787 and 1788.101
Sometime between 1793, when his daughter, Susannah, was born in York County, Pennsy1vania, 91and 1795, when his son, Jesse, was born in Virginia, 92Jacob and his family moved to Rockingham Country, Virginia. There is a reference to a deposition being taken on December 2, 1806 in the house of Jacob Roudebush “at the sign of the Cross Keys” in Rockingham County.93This may refer to the town of Cross Keys, Va.–one of John’s(#40) sons, George is said to have lived near Cross Keys, Va.–or it may mean that Jacob had an inn there. The date doesn’t appear to allow this reference to be applied to Jacob and his “inn”, but it is interesting to note that George Washington, on his way home from the Ohio Valley, spent several days in Rockingham County “at one Rudiborts.”94
By 1810, Jacob had moved his family to Strabane Township in Washington County, Pennsy1vania,95 and, in 1821, he came to what was then Columbiana County (now Carroll County), Ohio. He put up a rude log cabin on his farm in Washington Township. He lived there the rest of his life, dying in 1837. He and his wife are buried in unmarked graves on this farm. 102 He was a member of the Whig Party and the Disciples of Christ Church. 96
