I am looking for the relationship between Catherine Ruckle Wells and Harriet Catherine Burke, born 19 Mar 1874 in Galesburg Illinois to Catherine Gleasure and Patrick William Burke. We have a hand written manuscript that contains the following:
The Early History of the Ruckle Family

As written by Catherine Ruckle to her
daughter Mrs Catherine Wells, Three yrs
before the formers death, and copied by
my hand from the original copy sent
me by Mrs. Catherine Wells this 9th day
of May 1892.
"... About the latter part of the 16th century
three brothers of the Ruckle family
came from Germany to England
and afterwards settled in Ireland
in the reign of Queen Anne. The name
of the oldest was Sebastian, the
second Paul, the third Phillip.
Sebastion Ruckels children
Daniel, Henry, John, Thomas and Barbara,
the mother of American Methodism, ...
and that prevailed on Philip Embury to preach, ...
he was a preacher in Ireland, and her cousin
... she was my father's aunt, was married to
Paul Heck.

My father Sebastion Ruckle's
family (his son Daniel was the father
of George and George was my father and Agnes
R- was my mother her fathers name
was Hery Ruckle).
