Mike, I have a page from the 1900 census with a Ruckel and wife Mary ch. Archie and Sarah. First name is hard to make out but definetely begins with a W. Also about 4 doors away is a William Ruckel b. 1869 possibly brother?
This man is age 38 and was a lumberman wife Mary b. 5-1873 age 27 had 8 children at time of 1900 census 5 were deceased and 2 living. Archie E. b. 1892 and Sarah b. 1894. Like i said page wasn't really easy to read so wasn't able to get months. If you need it i can try to email the page to you. Is Wesley a main line for you??? I also know some one that is researching the residents of Pond Hill and i believe she has info on him. Let me know if you are interested.
