Bio Photo Daughter of the late Walter Eugene Ruggles Jr and Alice Mae Barchus.

My photos are taken as a service to the family and friends of the deceased. I gladly allow anyone to use these photos for geneological purposes/family trees. No further permission needed...consider this my release.

Find A Grave allows up to 5 photos to be loaded on each memorial. If you would like me to delete any photo I've taken for you, please contact me.

Regarding requests for transfering memorials I've created, but are not in my family, please contact me, and include your member name and member number. I always prefer the memorials to be in the hands of family...I just create them so someone else can claim them!

Henry S Beers plot
I will go back to the cemetery to
get more detail but I have posted the shot of the plot on Find A Grave. You will notice Edward's broken stone in bottom right of the photo.

RE: Frank & Ina Smock
Yes, those were the only Smocks in the small cemetery. We walked the entire cemetery and looked.

RE: Martha

I didn't add the other photo I took. It is of Henry Beers and family and is the plot is to the left of the your Northrop family. If you want me to send it to you or further the search just let me know.

Joy Vanda Castic was daughter of my father's youngest brother, Earl Vanda and we were the sole 1st cousins. She had a brother, Bruce Gordon Vanda born in 1930 who died in 1931. At one point she had said there was a family plot of 16 lots with 3 remaining at the time and she expected to occupy one of them. She never gave a plot location or who else was buried there tho in addition to her husband, William Castic, possibly her brother, parents, Muriel and Earl John Vanda, Uncle Earl's mother, Minnie Mae (Tyler/Vanda) Mitrenka and her husband, Phillip Mitrenka.
Unfortunately, what with being busy caring for my own 4, I also lost track of when these people died tho did have birth dates (which I can send to let you be aware I knew all of them. Also, I believe my Aunt Muriels parents (Sanford) may also be buried in the same plot. I would love to be able to ascertain this information for myself but, at just shy of 87 and living near Pensacola, FL, I have a lot of trouble just walking around let alone travel and be on my feet that long. Are you aware of any information on any of the individuals who may be buried in the same plot with Joy Laverne Vanda Castic and her husband William? I would really be able to put any of their genealogy into a record I am trying to put together for my "kids", grandkids and great-grandkids for fear that if I can't, they will never know where to look for it.

Thanks so much. Please let me know what I owe for your helping out.

Yes, go ahead and transfer them to me because I can't assess them!

Ancestry is not giving me a hint for their grave sites!
