RE: Frances Ruckman Photo Hi, Delores: The website "DeadFred.com" allows you to contact the submitter of the Ruckman photos. The only Frances Ruckman I found was the daughter of Elbridge Ruckman. Frances was born Mar. 1890, but I am quite rusty on the Ruckman family, I do not know if Frances is the dau. of Emma (Emarilla) Coen, or his second wife, Rosa G. 1900 Census for Washington/Asotin County/Anatone Twp. show Elbridge and Rosa G. with a daughter, Frances. It would be interesting to know who submitted the two photographs, perhaps we have another "cousin" out there! sjmohr
Two Ruckman Photos Hi, Delores. I saw 2 photos, one of George W. Ruckman and one of Frances Ruckman (from LaGrande Oregon) that someone submitted at this website: Deadfred.org. They are really nice photos. I am not sure who submitted them, but there is also a place at that website you can contact the submitter. I know that this is your family line. Regards, sjmohr
Aaron Stratton I saw you left flowers on Aaron Stratton's memorial stating you were descended from him. He is my wife's 6 great grandfather, I was wondering how you are related and if you have any information on his daughter Lavinia Stratton, my wife's 5th great grandmother.
RE: William Ruckman and Mary Miller Ruckman No, I haven't been to Agency cemetery. I have never found any more info than we shared via email, shortly before your husband passed. I am sorry for your loss, you spoke so fondly of him. I will let you know if any newer facts about the Ruckman & Miller family appear.
If I remember correctly, Charles was a son of Elijah. I know that Charles was alive and living in Schuyler Co, IL in 1863 (Civil War draft) but by the 1870 census, Hester was a widow living in McDonough Co. If you find anything, please let me know. I visited Hester's grave in Colorado Springs, CO a few years ago. She is buried with one of her sons. Hester was a younger sister to my GGG Grandfather. Have a good week!
