Notes
a. Note:   [ralphroberts.ged] [funderburk.ged] Information received from Michael Huffstutler on 5/3/1999. Devauld, at age 14, left his home in Leipzig, Germany with parents and 6 brothers and probably 2 sisters. They boarded ship, "The Golden Beaver", at Hamburg on the North Sea, and sailed for America. The Atlantic voyage was simultaneous, in 1738, with that of "The Thistle" on which other kinfolks sailed. Devauld's ship was wrecked off the Carolina coast and all family lost but him. He was rescued by a ship carrying German immigrants,and brought to Charleston, SC, and sold as indentured servant to a planter to pay passage. This may have been at Orangeburg, where a colony of Germans had settled earlier. After some years he "skipped bond" and headed north over the Charleston-Salisbury inland road. He moved northward to (what is now) Lancaster County and became associated with Titus Laney, an Irish immigrant settled on Wildcat Creek. In 1755 when he was 30 he married Titus's daughter, Catherine Laney, who was 15. DeVauld relocated to a German settlement on the Haw River, but returned to Lancaster County, SC settling on upper Great Lynches Creek. Hans DeVauld and Catherine Laney Funderburk were the parents of Mary Funderburk who married Conrad Plyler, John Funderburk married (1) Mary Larriman and (2) Lucy ?, David Funderburk married Catherine Rape, Elizabeth Funderburk married William Woody, Catherine Funderburk married Daniel Hunter, Abel Funderburk, Joseph Funderburk married Molly Stuckey, Jacob Funderburk married Jesse Hayes, William Funderburk, and George Washington Funderburk married Sally Scott. (Funderburk Castles and Conquests by Guy Funderburk, 1975 the Cory Press) In the early 1800s some of the Funderburks began moving over into Chesterfield County. They became one of the most prominent families in the northwestern section of the "Old Store District" and at one time owned and operated the "Funderburk Mine" on Lynches Creek.
