Cynthia Ruckman; b. 1822; married Robert Ramsey, 1848, Pike County
Mary; b. 1824; married Osiah Moser, 1846; children born in Ohio and Iowa; family in Wapello, Iowa for 1850 census; 1880 residing Mankato, Jewell Co, KS, at the home of her nephew with her sister Judith (see below) They had just moved from Iowa. The Moser family was not all in one place. Mary's eight year old son, Oran (my grandfather) was with Darwin Seymore, wife Sarah, and their daughter Sylvia. Sarah was the daughter of Judith. Osiah was alive but not with the family. Haven't found him yet in the 1880 census.
Judith; b. 1827; married John William Reynolds, 1846; listed 1880 census as living in Mankato, Jewell Co. Kansas---living with son Louis D. RRaynolds; her sister Mary Ruckman Moser, wife of Osiah Mose. Some of Mary'sadult children were also residing with the family.
John; b. 1829 dy? Sophia; b. 1832 John; b. 1834 Adam; b. 1836 Polly; b. 1841
Although the Ruckman family was from Pike County, I have found marriage records for these siblings, in Pike, Scioto, and Ross County.
John Ruckman's will recorded in Pike County in 1847. Names wife, Polly. Will written in 1831. No knowledge of where Polly was after 1850, but would like to know.
Willing to share information on the Ruckman and Moser families. Mary Ruckman Moser is my greatgrandmother.
I would like to hear from any of my cousins and exchange information. I am trying to learn something about each of my Ruckman greatgreataunts and uncles.
Does anyone know if John b. 1829 and John b. 1834 were known by their middle names? There were so many people named John in that family, it wouldn't surprise me.
Does anyone know if anything has been published in any Genealogy Journal in Ohio or other midwest state about this family, or any line in this family?
Sharing creates connections. Connections grow family trees.
