I am looking for information on Ruans who might be distant family. My g-g-grandmother was Margaret Agnes Ruan, who married Charles William McLaughlin. She was from Philly, he from Lucinda Furnace/Clarion, PA. They met while she was a nurse in Philly, at a soldiers' hospital. MAR's father was James Ruan. We know next to nothing about him, except that he was more than likely Irish.
If any of this might fit with your info, please send me a note!
