Looking for Rittle/Semenuk/Samanuk etc spellings:
Looking for Steven or Samuel? (First name unknown) Semenuk bn in Odessa, Russia abt. 1833 emmigrated to the States and Settled in Benedict, North Dakota. His wifes name could have been Kusa or Rusa. He could have possibly applied for citizenship in 1902, received citizenship in 1908.
Later went to live with a daughter or daughters in California, I'm assuming aft 1925.
Children were Sam or Steven Semenuk.
