Hi Willie Thank you for the information. this is the right person. the information i have is written in long ahnd and I though the middle initial was "G". You have posted more information than what I myself managed to find and this means I do not have to ask the next question"who was john's parents". I don't think there is any conection between this John Ruddy and the family group i am trying to research.
Once again thank you for your input and interest. Patrick ruddy
