Hi, I am new to this and caught your message on Ruhlman. I am also researching the Ruhlman family, but am having a hard time, as it is not a very common name.
I can tell you that I am descended from John William Ruhlman, born 19 Feb 1830 in York County, Pa thru his son Elias Elsworth Ruhlman, then thru Lonzo Earl Ruhlman and his son Robert Lloyd Ruhlman and then my mother Lynda Ruhlman.
I know that John had at least 4 children, all boys, George Henry b 1857 Oh, Lewis Oliver b 1860, I believe Oh also, Elias Elsworth b 1866 Oh, and Charles Wilson b 1873 Oh.
I would be very grateful if you had any information to add for my line or any ideas of where I should go from here. I am having a hard time finding birth and death certificates for some of them.
Thanks in advance for any info and feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
