I have received a couple of queries about the book by Harold Turk Smutz.
requesting a little more information. The book is entitled:
John Ruddell of the Shenandoah Valley: His children and grandchildren. It
is out-of-print and the author's son has consented to get a couple of bids
on a soft reprint of the book. So, I have been collecting names of
interested parties. The more orders on this will help keep the costs down.
Also, Mr. Smutz isn't looking to make a profit, only to cover his costs of
printing and shipping. The book is a compilation of many branches of the
Ruddells and other aligned families. It focuses on the fort and it's
history and includes families' documents such as wills, cemetery
incriptions, vital records and more.
Mr. Smutz's book is an excellent source for research of that area
times. Some of the families mentioned (there are probably a hundred) are:
Bird, Bohannon, Bowman, Cook, Hite, Lair, Mulheirn, and Sharp to name a few.
Anyone that would like me to include them in the group wishing a
please let me know before April 15th.
