  1. My name is Bruce Cable, and I live in Louisville, Kentucky. I've been doing some genealogy research on my family, and I happened upon your very interesting blog article regarding the Bedford County long rifles, and I noticed that your ancestor, Johann George Kapp arrived in Philadelphia on September 11, 1732 on the same ship, the Philadelphia Merchant! They were Swiss who had immigrated to the German Palatinate, thence to America and are listed as Philip Cavel & his wife Maria Cavel, and their daughter Barbara Cabal. Philip & Maria were my 6th great grand parents. Their actual surname was Kobel, but as I'm sure you know, spelling was hit & miss, mostly miss back then. I'm descended from their son Abraham Cable, who became a Sub Lieutenant (Lt. Colonel), in the Bedford County Militia. Two of his sons also served the patriot cause. Perhaps one of them used one of you great grandfather's rifles! There is a diary that one of the passengers wrote while a passenger on that same ship from the year before. In fact it docked in Philadelphia on the exact same day, September 11. It was fascinating to read a first hand account of some of the suffering that went on during their journey, knowing that it must have been quite the same for our own great's. I enjoyed reading your blog. Take care. Bruce Cable
