I hope everyone is doing well these days. I took a look at the George R
ogers Clark Papers web site recently and they now have abstracts to the records
in their index. Below are the ones that mentioned Ruddlesforters. Some of
these were researched by Bob Francis, but some are new. Nothing really
exciting, but you kind of get an idea what was generally eaten at the fort i.e. corn,
salt, deer, bear, cow, buffalo, etc. -- Jim Sellars
