Nellene Boatwright My mother's maiden name was Rumsey. According to her, either three or five Rumsey brothers came to America from the "old country." (I have no idea which "old country" or what year.) These brothers each went their separate ways. My mother's branch of the family ended up in Alabama. This is where my grandfather, William Henry Rumsey, was born. (He went by Henry, not William.) At some point in time the family moved to Hardy, Arkansas. This is where my grandparents met and lived for the rest of their lives. Does anyone know what country the Rumsey family came from or have any other information on the family?
