Hi, I am Eva Rutterbush Rovang, Email Address is Redwing4dr@Cox.net,My father was Truman Rutterbush from Bay City Michigan Area.My grandparents were from Tawas Michigan, Forest and Gladus Rutterbush.I have a cousin I met at my fathers Funeral, named Allen, the spelling of his last name was Ruterbusch and lived in Bay City.
Allen stated that there were four brothers who came from Germany, that when they arrived here there was a dispute over the spelling of the last name. Hence the differance in the spelling.The dispute caused major problems and the brothers went thier seperate ways.
My parents were first cousins, so I thought my mother could shed some light on the subject but she has been ill and can only tell me the basics.
My great Grandfather and mother were Mary and Paul Rutterbush. My sister inlaw Donna Rutterbush has done alot of research, she is living in Alanson MI and would be willing to share anything she can with you. Good luck in your search.
