Death: 1907

Mary Olive Ruhl, a daughter of Miriam (née Painter) and Levi Ruhl, was born in Perry Township, Richland County, Ohio. Along with her parents, she migrated to Holt County, Missouri, in the early 1850s.

Miss Mary Ruhl and John H. Brockman were married 18 February 1866 in Holt County, Missouri, by Justice of the Peace Richard Acton, who was a brother-in-law of the groom.

The couple moved to Pawnee County, Kansas, in the 1870s (their youngest daughter was born in Kansas in 1876). Before 1887, they moved to Spokane County in what was then Washington Territory.

~Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, Cherished memories never fade because a loved ones gone Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, For as long as there is a memory they live on in our heart ~
