Philip Jacob (Buhe) BOOE
b 1683 Baden,
m Maria Margaretha MARTIN
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."

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
Margretha UNKNOWN. Among the children of Christopher
and Margretha was:
Rudolph (Ruliff) BOOE [Christopher
(Stoeffer/Stoffel), Philip Jacob]
m Mary BUSHELLSON
March 1776 Rowan County, NC
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

evidence, PLEASE Email me.
