Chris, In Feb. I saw message from Ellen Gilson. Her ggggrandfather was John Ruland who marriedJulianer? She said they lived in Vermont but 2 of their boys came to Warren around 1835. You might wish to look for her entry in the forum. It is my opinion that John was the 2nd son of Peter and Mary Jackson Ruland born 1749 Huntington,NY. If this proves to be so then you would have your line back to France!
