Birth: unknown, USA
Death: unknown, USA

Nothing is known about Gertrude prior to her marriage to Godfrey Bumgardner, his third wife. She and Godfrey were parents of seven known children, all born in Virginia:
1. Mary Magdalena b. 16 Oct 1762
2. Frederick b. about 1765
3. Jacob b. about 1767
4. Margaret b. about 1770
5. Susanna b. before 1775
6. Christina b. 12 Sep 1775
7. Andrew b. 7 Aug 1777

In Rockingham County (previously Augusta Co.), Virginia,(now Germany Valley,Pendleton Co., WV) on 3 March 1783, a deed was signed in German by Godfrey Bumgardner and his wife K(G)ertrout who signed with an "X" (translation). By this, it is known that she could not write, but most important, a clue to her name. In 1787, Harrison Co., VA (now WV), Godfrey alone purchased land. Gertrude apparently died after 3 March 1783 and before 1787. She probably died in Rockingham Co., Virginia (now Pendleton Co, WV).

Her maiden name is often spelled Courtwright. Several variations have been found.
