He immigrated from near the Ramsaur River in Austria, departing at Rotterdam for Philadelphia in Oct. 1727. He willed the property to his sons, Jacob and David Ramseur. The name evolved to be known as Ramsaur and Ramsour. Many Ramseur/Ramsaur/ Ramsour generations are buried in this cemetery along with associated family lines.
