The Booe Lineage

NOTE: This link between the wife of Rudolphus DODD and the BOOE family has not been proven. There is a preponderance of evidence, so if you can either prove or disprove this connection, please email me.

Philip Jacob (Buhe) BOOE

b 1683
Baden, Germany

m Maria Margaretha MARTIN

30 Jan 1701
Weissenstein, Germany

According to Ron BOOE's excellent BOOE website, "Philip took an oath of allegiance Pennsylvania, 1738. The first indication of the family of Booes in America comes from the Philadelphia passenger record of Strasburgers Vol. 1 page 233. This record is as follows: Palantines imported in the "Snow Fox" Charles Ware Commande from Rotterdam but last from Plymouth in old England. Qualified October 12, 1738. Phillip Jacob and his family arrived in Philadelphia on October 12, 1738 aboard the Snow Fox, a type of two-masted sailing vessel common in the 18th century. They remained in Pennsylvania for sometime and became a part of the Pennsylvania Dutch Society. Their son, Christopher Booe, left Pennsylvania and was in Rowan County, North Carolina by 1756."

Philip Jacob BOOE and Maria Margaretha MARTIN had:

Christopher (Stoffel) BOOE

b 6 May 1712
Weissenstein, Germany

d 1783
North Carolina
at 71 years of age

m 1st Maria Dorothea NEYL
Weissenstein, Germany

m 2nd Margretha UNKNOWN. Among the children of Christopher and Margretha was:

Rudolph (Ruliff) BOOE [Christopher (Stoeffer/Stoffel), Philip Jacob]

b Pennsylvania 1756


9 March 1776
Rowan County, NC

Again, according to Ron BOOE's website: "The following individual is also linked to this event: Ad OSBORN (witness). Listed on the 1768 Rowan County Tax List of Morgan Bryan Listed on the 1772 County Tax list of William Sharp."

I believe that among the children of Rudolph/Rudolphus (Ruliff) BOOE and Mary BUSHELLSON was a daughter who married William DODD of Greene Co, TN. William and wife lived in the Greene Co household of Rudolphus and Mary BOOE for 15 years. Rudolphus sold off his land to William DODD, and I believe Rudolphus was living in William's household in the 1830 census. William DODD's first daughter, who "should have been" named for the wife's mother, was Mary, and his second son, who "should have been" named for the wife's father, was Rudolphus B. If you can help me firm up this preponderance of evidence, PLEASE Email me. Thanks!!
