We are in the same family but by Allen, not Ruben. My husbands line came from George Washington's brother Ruben Ruffus. I would love to have your information, birth and death dates and names of children and wifes to add to my history. If you would like a copy of the history I have now please let me know. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The information I have says that you are my husband's (Joseph Marlar) 4th cousin once removed. We have a Marlar reuion in Burnsville, MS every year, if you would like more info let me know.
