Well, four years later -- I have a little info on the Ruffenachs of Okanogan Co., WASHINGTON. Annie BUOR Ruffenach, Mary's mother was the sister of my great-great-grandfather, Nicholas BUOR. She was born in Michigan. Her mother was Bertha Kathleen Albert. Bertha was born in Germany probably near the Germany / French bordr in the Alsace-Lorraine area as Nicholas was born there. This family moved to Elizabeth, Otter Tail, Minnesota when Annie was a child. Annie married Victor Ruffenach in Otter Tail, where Mary and her sister Clara was born. Anna's parents moved to Helena and she and her young family must have gone along as their third child, Henry was born in Helena, Montana. By the time their youngest child, Louis, was born, they were in Okanogan, Washington. Henry, Victor and Annie (Anna) are buried in the Clover Cemetery in Okanagan Co. I don't have the e-address handy, but you can goggle "Ruffenach, Okanogan, Washington" and find a list of people buried in Clover Cemetery. Mary and her family are buried there as well.
