    1752
    Michael, his parents and two brothers arrived in Philadelphia on October 20, 1752 on the ship "Duke of Wirtenburg" that sailed from Rotterdam and Cowes under Captain Daniel Montpelier.

    1768
    In 1768, as Joppa's commercial influence faded the influence of the port of Baltimore Town, now known as Baltimore, resulted in it being named the county seat.

    Michael Rub and Jacob Rub (five names down on list) along with Christian Daker and Andres Welti are signers for the removal of the county seat to Baltimore town.

    1768
    By an Act of Assembly in 1768 the inhabitants of Baltimore, including Michael Rub and Jacob Rub, signed a petition to transfer the county seat from Joppa to "Baltimore Town". On pg. 558 (see source citation below) Michael and Jacob Rub both left their mark. Another man signed and his signature was transcribed as Jacob Rul(?). It is possible that this is Jacob Sr. and both of his sons, Jacob Jr. and Michael, signed by leaving their mark.
