Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for about 20+ years and believe in free exchange of family history. I was born in Pennsylvania, lived in upstate New York for a short time as a child then moved with parents and siblings to California, now residing in Missouri. A few of the family names I am researching are: Hoffman, Whitehead, Gress, Sifford,Lorentz, Hunt, McClanahan, Bepler, Holmead, Pairo, Livengood, Stutzman, Thomas, Martin, Stevens, Perry and Gonzales families. Anyone wishing to share info, feel free to contact me.

Hi Kathy--

Following up on your message; where did your Perry relatives live? My Perry relatives changed the name from Pereira about 1918. Have you also tried local newspapers?

Phil Knox
Adam Baughman's wife

I should have clarified. Her maiden name was originally "Ruch" which over time morphed into "Rugh" such as you can see on her gravestone. This was/is true within her branch of the family as wll as other branches. My own grandmother was a "Rugh". It was never really "Roof", although the name often got written wrong in the really old records. I think it was a "German to English" translation problem with some scribes. Actually some branches still today use original "Ruch".

Hey, just trying to be accurate.. Hope this doesn't Hey sound too "nit picky". <>

Her maiden name was "Rugh" not "Roof".
If I can find a memorial for her I will link her to Adam's memorial.

Hi Kathy!
No, sadly no relation to the Hoffman's. I enjoy taking photos at the cemeteries and "visiting" with the folks there. Do you live near this area?
