In the 1930 US census his name is spelled Ruie. He is also in the 1910 census for Ohio. He is reported ascoming to the US in 1885. U can get data from www.ancestry.com

Hi Bob,

Thanks so much for your help with Rine/Rhine now Ruie Kruger HA. I have not signed up for the paid benefits on Ancestory.Com so I can't access the information right now. Hopefully, sometime in the future I will be able to.

I did do a search on here though and nothing else came up so I must be the only one going that far.

Again, I really appreciate your replying and help!

Best wishes,
Susan Kruger Besta

Hello Bob,
Thanks so much for your help! I have found out that two of my Grandpa's brothers are still alive and I have contacted one of them. He told me his father, who was Rine/Rhine b: 1 Aug 1869 at Winschoten (Groningen) Holland had cousins living in Winschoten also. There were 2 generations of KRUGER's there in Woldendorp near Goningen. There was a Hendrik who married a Kruger in 1847 Detondorf, Germany who then went to the Netherland's.

He is looking for more information for me and we will be in contact again shortly. Stoffer turns out to be Rhine's brother.

My Email address is: kcsuzyq@aol.com and I can receive all emails however, if I don't know who it is from and the subject doesn't look familiar, I may inadvertently delete the message. As long as the message says KRUGER INFO or such, I will read it.

Thanks SO MUCH for your help!!
Sincerely,
Susan Kruger Besta
