Elvalee, I have oodles of Ruddell family history. One of my ancestors was Elizabeth Bowman, married Isaac Ruddell. A GrDaughter of theirs Sarah Ruddell married my GrGrGrandfather. If I can help you in any way, just let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Give me some dates if you have them, also other names marrying into your lines. The more info the better for tracing. I have lots of history on the Ruddell lines too. Nathan.
