Re: pronounciation of Roelfs
This would be the more likely pronounciation of the name. Although we would probably have turned your name into Rulfus. Everett Ruhlis was illiterate and I've not found a true spelling of the name. Originally I would guess there were two syllables from the way it was written and the first one had a u soundLater it became Ruhles then became simply Rules. Everett came from Holland and his daughters were born there. Searches over there have turned up nothing and we've been the first spelling of the name did not originate in Holland. I can't even find where he came into the country because of the spelling.
