Much of the new information
about John Brumage, Sr. was kindly contributed by Cathy.
Cathy, much of the above information was made available by Wilson C
Brown of Rexburg, ID,
a descendent of
Julia, the fist child of Jacob and Mary.
Jacob was a
private in the War of 1812 commanded by Captain James Hurry in Virginia
discharged Aug 15, 1814 in the Muster Rolls.
in the Civil War and had no children.
Some additional information
and dates were also found on the web site by
This wonderful detailed
history of one line of my Brumage family is from Donna in Iowa:
George Royce, farmer and
stock-raiser, on section 16, Oregon township, is the
owner of 121 acres of well-improved land. He is a native
of Livingston County, N. Y., born in 1821, and is a son
of Samuel and Betsy (Reed) Royce, natives of
Connecticut, but who moved to New York at a very early
day, and there died many years ago. The early life of
George was spent on a farm, his time being divided
between the school-room and working upon a farm,
attending school during the winter months, and laboring
during the spring, summer and fall months. When
twenty-two years of age, he commenced working in a
foundry at Tylerville, N. Y., and continued in that
employment for two years, then commenced working in a
carriage-shop, and continued in that business for two
years. He then came west and settled in St. Clair
County, Illinois where he remained three years, engaged
in the manufacture of plows. In 1854, he came to Iowa
and settled in Muscatine County, where he remained two
years, and where he also engaged in plow manufacturing.
In 1856 he came to Washington County, Iowa, and for
several years was engaged in various lines of mechanical
labor, and then removed to a farm, since which time he
has been engaged in farming.
Mr. Royce was married in
1850, in Muscatine, Iowa to Adelaide Brumage, a daughter
of Jacob and Mary Brumage, both of whom were natives of
Virginia, the former of German and the latter of English
descent. She was born in Liberty, Ind., in 1833. Her
parents moved to Muscatine, Iowa in 1847 and there died
some years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Royce have five children,
only one of whom is now living... John T.
The deceased are
Annie, Ida, Alice and Rose.
Mr. and Mrs. Royce are
members of the United Brethren Church.
Politically, he is a Republican.
It is a proverb that we
brought nothing into the world and can take nothing out.
Be this as it may, while in this world one can add
greatly to his possessions, if to industry is combined
rigid economy, with a determination to do. This has been
the case with Mr. Royce and his good wife. They have
toiled long and hard, early and late, and are now the
possessors of a neat and comfortable home, surrounded by
plenty, for all of which they feel truly grateful.

County, Iowa Biographical Dictionary.
