Re: David, Philip, and George Ruckle Gra

In Reply to: David, Philip, and George Ruckle Graves by dan wells of 181


According to my genealogy program I am a half first cousin 3 times removed to John, David, Philip and George (and the 8 other siblings, including your great grandmother Catherine!)

My line goes to Christopher E Ruckle's father, Philip, but down from his second wife Elizabeth Ashbury, not Mary Dolmage.

The Ohio State library has copies of the Official Roster of the Soldiers of the State of Ohio in the War of the Rebellion 1861-1866

I received photocopies of extracts from the Official Roster from another relative (Ruth Hibberd nee Moffitt) that provide the following details for Henry, David, Philip and John. Grave information is included for John (which you have) and for Philip.

I don't have any "original" info on George. Where did Nancy get her information on George?

Is John's grave reference correct?

Vol II page 448 (Fourteen Regiment, Company I) lists:
