Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in genealogy and have been diligently working on my family tree for the past 30 years.

I was raised in a military family my father serving 26 years in the military..our soldiers have a special place in my heart. I have lived many different places Washington, Alabama, Texas, Arizona Germany And Belgium.. but now I live in southeast Mo where my family roots run deep.

Find a grave has been instrumental in helping to bring my family tree together. The names on my paternal side are Kinder, Crites, Slinkard, Allen, Seabaugh, Davis, Prentiss, Lane, Wray, Alexander,
Hill, Matthews, Daniel, Howard, Kelly, Walker

On My Maternal side..Farmer,Ruggles Huddleston, Moore, Carter, Menefee, Lewis,Van Orsdall, Carpenter, Baker, Sims, Plummer, Pointer, Harris

I have always liked walking through cemeteries wondering about the people and the lives they lived. I find it very peaceful..

Jane Ruggles - Plummer

In my first message concerning my ancestor Jane Ruggles - Plummer I said concerning my Grandmother, Nellie May Ruggles' Aunt, "The only Mann in our tree is with Melinda Christine "Nellie" Ruggles who married Phillip Mann." I meant to say Mildred Christina "Nellie Ruggles, not Melinda Christine.

Jane Ruggles - Plummer
Four of our family members descended from Nellie May Ruggles have taken DNA tests. Edna, is her eldest daughter and she tested on 23andMe. The tests show a map that when colored in certain parts of the map, indicate Native American Ethnicity in that area. My daughter in law is 16% NA and her American continents (North & South) are colored. Aunt Edna's is colored as well. Mine was until the site updated their testing. Aunt Edna, my Mom and I all show Southeast Asian, African and Iberian (Spain) indicating NA. On WeGene/, my husband and my mom show Hispanic (which indicates Euorpean/Native American combined ethnicity.) My husband is Choctaw through his mother. DNA.LAND shows is NA ethnicity. We now have another descendant of this Ruggles line. A young woman last named Mann shares DNA with Edna. The only Mann in our tree is with Melinda Christine "Nellie" Ruggles who married Phillip Mann. They lived in Stafford, Kansas with her big brother, Dr. Charles Asbury Ruggles (known as an Indian Doctor and his historically noted by the Stafford, Kansas Historical Society.) Charles is the eldest child of Thomas Warren Ruggles and Elizabeth Jane Mitchell and is my Grandmother father's big brother. George, Charles and Melinda are some of the children of Thomas and Elizabeth. Thomas Warren Ruggles is the son of George Enoch Ruggles and Margaret Plummer. We know Margaret Plummer is the daughter of Jane Ruggles who married Thomas Plummer. Of all the women who married our paternal Ruggles line, Jane is the only ancestor we cannot verify a lineage of. We believe she is our Native American Source. Aunt Edna and Kimberly Mann are listed as 4th cousins. This means they share a 3rd great grandparent. This would be Jane Ruggles & Thomas Plummer. Anyone who is a direct descendant of Jane's maternal line needs to be tested to find out if you carry one of the Native American Haplogroups she would have. This would help prove what we are seeing from my side of the family.

Jane Ruggles Plummer
I'm eager for you to share with me your documentation that Thomas Ruggles is the father of my ancestor, Jane Ruggles Plummer. I've been searching for proof of her parentage for years.
