The birth, baptism, and marriage records all give his last name as Bumpus, so I think that should be his LNAB.

Is anyone actively working on this line? I'm working to resolve some duplicate profiles for Ichabod Bumpus. Based on the probate info, I'd like to disconnect son Ichabod that's attached. I can't see any evidence that John had a son Ichabod. (I think he is the same actually son of Jacob attached to the wrong parent).

Any objections?
