I am not related to these people, just have a book with information on them."The Pioneers of Madison and Hancock Counties (Indiana)," which I believe was first published in the early 1900s, has the following:
"Milton Ruddle was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on the 18th day of August, 1828.He was a son of John B. Ruddle, who was an early settler of Madison Co., Indiana.John B. Ruddle's wife's name before marriage was Jemima Bell.The family first settled in Wayne County, Indiana, until 1833, when they came to near Anderrson, where Milt has resided ever since.On the 23rd day of December, 1856, he was married to Ellen Coburn, a daughter of the late Joseph Coburn, whose wife was Margaret Nelson.Mr. Coburn died in 1875; Mrs. Coburn died in 1861.John B. Ruddle died in 1834, soon after coming to Madison County.He is buried in Wayne County, Indiana.Mrs. Ruddle died in 1851, and is buried in the Anderson cemetery."
"The following are the names of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Ruddle's children - Margaret, born in Feburary, 1859; she died in 1878, aged about twenty years.William, born in 1859; married to Miss A. Moore, resides in Park Place.Athaliah, married to William Carroll; reside in Park Place.Benny, married to Samuel Millspaw.Daisy, born in 1877, single, at home."
"Mr. Ruddle owns a fine farm just north-east of Anderson, and in 1891, built a fine residence overlooking the city and Park Place.The latter was laid out by him in 1891, and consists of 150 lots.This is a beautiful place, and is situated between his house and the river.On the heights just west of his residence is the Ruddle Grove, so well known by all the people as one of the handsomest spots in the county, and where the annual Old Settlers' meetings are held, as well as other gatherings......he is a mason."
