Bio and Links
Hi, I am gathering my ancestors on Find A Grave and am a descendent of Eleanor Thomas b. 1820 and Jehu "John" Rucker b. 1816, both from Ohio. The ancestral connection to Peter Rucker of Virginia, the first Rucker to arrive in America, has finally been made.

My ancestral trail is Peter Rucker (Virginia) to Lemuel Rucker (Virginia, Ohio) to Ambrose Rucker (Virginia, Ohio, Iowa) to Jehu Rucker (Ohio) to Benjamin Rucker (Ohio, Nebraska, Arkansas) to Allen Rucker (Ohio, Nebraska, Oklahoma) to Albert Rucker (Nebraska, Oklahoma, California, Arizona)

I have a virtual cemetery with non related Ruckers in it. If you find one in there that is your Ancestor I will be glad to transfer the memorial to you.

Feel free to leave a message with any information or questions.

RE: Foldens
Hello Mary,
I'm sorry, but I married into the Folden "klan".Opps, NOT sorry I married a Folden, but sorry I can not help you more. Although I do quite a bit of my own genealogy, I have not been able to get my husband interested in doing his. His name is Charles Warner Folden, Jr. His dad was a Charles Warner as well as his Great grandfather. (It skipped a generation) Don't know if that helps you any.

Penuell McClure Keepers
Mary-I was in Anderson, IN at Maplewood Cemetery last week visiting Melvina Keepers, Vera Keepers, and my Rose family ancestors. I called the office and asked them to give me the location of Penuell's gravesite and they did not have a listing for him. Do you have any information? I know exactly where Melvina (his wife) and also Vera are buried, as well as his son Charles Keepers. I am hoping to return next year and would like to visit his site if possible. I do have a map of Maplewood.

Thanks, Becky Donally

Wyatt rucker
Hi Mary. I just picked up the photo request for Wyatt Rucker.
Did you know that Evergreen cemetery has" Ruckers Tomb " I will go tomorrow and take the picture. I think also buried there are Jane Morris Rucker 1830-1907, Bethel J Rucker 1862-1945 and Wyatt if you are interested in any of these people

Sarah Rucker
Hi. I'm researching my ancestors Ruben Cline (63268544) and Sarah Rucker Cline (129653848). They died in Linn County Iowa and were buried in Urbana, Benton County, Iowa. I'm wondering if my Sarah Rucker is the same Sarah Rucker who was Ambrose Rucker and Sarah Steele Rucker's daughter Sarah. Some sources say Ambrose's dau Sarah died in 1845, but I have yet to see any primary sources for that.

Do you have any information that may help me make the connection?
