Larance (spelled that way in the original family bible) Ellis Rudder was one of 4 children born to William and Nancy (Purlee) Rudder. Born in 1876 in the old home built by his father, he moved to Salem in 1885 when his mother died and lived in the jail when his father was appointed Sheriff. He soon tired of this and returned to his grandmother Elizabeth's farm to care for her and help with the farm. He married Cora Cauble March 1st 1896, and they lived in his fathers old home about 300 yards from his grandmothers. Here their daughter Mable and their son Roger were born, then in 1903 they moved to his grandmothers house and two more boys, Casper and William Harold were born. They actively farmed until they were no longer able to, and Cora, who was in very poor health the last years of her life, she went with Ellis to their daughter Mable Bundy's home. After 67 years of marriage she passed in 1963, and Ellis died almost 4 years later at age 91.
