Classification: Query
Surnames: Ruark, Goodrich
I am trying to attach Erastus Ruark to Shadrack Ruark married to Rebeckah, born in Ohio abt. 1804.There is a Shadrack married to Rebecca having babies in Ohio, but the
last child listed was Reason born 1797. This Shadrack was in Lawrence Co. Illinois in the 1820's and Erastas was married in Lawrence Co. in 1827.

If anyone can help me tie Erastus to Shadrack I would be very greatful. I also have info on my line which was mainly in Schuyler Co, IL, and Peoria IL.

I am also tracking the Goodrich name located in Peoria IL
area from 1840 on. Gr-Grand was Rufus Cheny Goodrich.

I have attempted to copy verbatim the words written in the Family Records section of Erastus and Sidney’s family Bible, thus Erastus and Sidney was married, Nancy An daughter of E and S are not my shorthand or dropping a letter- this is what was written.
If you would like to try your hand at some of the spelling/handwriting I am very willing to email digital photos of the entries.

Thank you for all the information on Erastus and Sidney. I'm wondering how you got your hands on the bible and are you a relative?

I inherited the Erastus & Sidney Bible. My great grandfather William E. Ruark, born 1874, was a son of Louis E. Ruark, born 1847, who was a son of Ersastus & Sidney.
Erastus & Sidney list their own births in the Bible and Erastus lists John C. Ruark as his father. I'm trying to find John C.

Isn't John C a son of Shadrack? My great grand father was Robert Martin Ruark born just before Louis E.

Is John C a son of Shadrack? If so, thank you for your information, What else can you tell me about Ruarks from John C. on back. I'm new at this and am working back from a family Bible & a website.
"Robert Martin Ruark son of E and S Ruark was born January the seventh in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and forty five 1845" verbatim from Erastus and Sidney's Bible.
