I am looking for info on my ggggggrandfather.
Will appreciate any help anyone can give me.
Simon RUFFENER came over on the Loyal Judith to
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, with his family.
They sailed from Rotterdam by way of Cowes, England.
He arrived at the 7th hour in September 2, 1743.
His wife's name was (Mary) Barbara SCHULTZ (or SCHILTZ)
and they had three children before they sailed.
Names of the children were Phillip, Christian and Mary.
Simon II was born either aboard the Loyal Judith
or upon arrival in Philadelphia.
It is thought that they lived in the Austrian Tyrol.
