Looking for contact with the researcher Paul who posted the query on the RUSE family in 1998 , his email is being returned. I am also looking for info on Nathan Madison RUSE who he says died at Forest , WI in 1882 because :

My dads mother was born a RUSE. Her father Harvey RUSE was from From Frankfort, Clinton County, Indiana , his father was William Lorenzo RUSE born 7 Nov 1863 at Clinton County, Indiana he was the son of Nathan Madison RUSE who was born in 1837 in Ohio , from Clinton County, Indiana WPA records we learn that Nathan Madsion RUSE married to Elizabeth DAVIDSON on 13 March 1856 his wife Elizabeth DAVIDSON from Census data was born in Ohio in 1837 as well . Could these be your RUSE's ? If so Nathan Madsion RUSE was the son of Nathan RUSE born 1810 in Ohio , he married Sarah CASHATT daughter of Thomas CASHATT and Ann RATCLIFF on 17 Sept 1829 att Highland County,Ohio , she was born in 1813 in Ohio . I know the CASHATT family were Quaker and are mentioned in Indiana Friends Records as well as in North Carolina , but I think the RUSE family were long Methodist church members . Nathan RUSE was the son of Edmond RUSE Sr. who was born ca. 1793 in Virginia and died before 13 Sept 1837 when his father made his will. Edmond was married to Susannah who was born 1785 in Kentucky . Edmomd RUSE Sr. was the son of Aaron RUSE Sr . who was born Ca, 1764 and married to Ruth PHILLIPS daughter of Edm/Edom PHILLIPS in Farquair (sp ? ) County, Virginia ( have date but not in front of me ) Aaron RUSE died on 3 March 1850 at Laurel Hill Cemetery near Lynchburg, Ohio - his wife Ruth PHILLIPS is buried at F& AM Cemetery at Lynchburg, Ohio having died on 25 July 1844 .

Could this be the family you are looking for ? After about 1870 I lost track of Nathan Madison RUSE and Elizabeth DAVIDSON , so perhaps this is them ? I look forward to hearing from you .

Recently we were contacted by someone who is doing research for friends on a restored cabin in Bloom Township, Richland County,Wisconsin. They came across a log, and on the inside of this log they found the signature of a Mr. John AYERS and it was dated September 23, 1893. They were unable to find a burial site for him and the Richland County History Room does not seem to have anything about him on file.

Oscar and Nellie (ALLBAUGH) McBAIN were married March 19, 1894 and lived in the cabin which was possibly new, after their marriage. The researchers would like to know what connection if any, would John AYERS have had with them?

We found a James AYERS in Richland Co., on a census (Ancestry.com). Our family (the HALLs) settled in neighboring Sauk Co. It was our ancestral Aunt Malinda HALL, who on 3 Mar. 1856 married John AYERS. The only AYERS family we found on the census record in Sauk county was that of a Simon K. AYERS. Sometime after their marriage, John and Malinda settled in Madison, Kane Co.,(another neighboring county). The only AYERS on the census in that place, were Ebenezer and a J.D. Our Aunt Malinda's obituary states that she traveled to see her ill sister, Mehetable (HALL) SHACKLEY in Lyons, Walworth Co. and on the way she contracted a cold which resulted in pneumonia. Malinda died at her sister, Mehetable's house and her body was shipped back to Madison. The obituary is dated 7 Jan. 1899. We would certainly like to know more about the AYERS ourselves. Malinda HALL AYERS was born August 21, 1827. We do not know John's birthdate nor do we have knowledge of his descendants. We do know that Malinda would have been 66 years old when John AYERS signed and dated that log and that she died 6 years later. If it wasn't Malinda's husband, it could have been a son of theirs.

Carter A. Dary Tue Mar 12 15:14:28 2002
I'm looking for any information re: Philip DARY, father of William A. DARY (died in Richland cty around 1916 I believe). I've found that Philip was William's father and that is all. By the way, William A. had a son named William so it's easy to get them confused. Both are buried in Richland Cty. They would be my Great and Great Great grandfathers.
Thank You! C. Dary

John DENMAN (d: June, 1957) and Helena TORMEY (d: Feb., 1965)?
They were the parents of Gerald DENMAN (d: Dec., 1977).
