Does anyone have relatives with last name of Bruce? Looking for a Jeff Bruce, age 23 in 1900 and was located in Richland Parish in 1900, 1920 & 1930. Lived in Ward 3 believed to be in the Alto, LA area. His wife was named something like Joanna or Johanna, and had a daugther named Viola Bruce, a son named Woodrow Bruce and a daughter named Inez or Ivana?Bruce. He was born in abt. 1887 in Louisiana as well as his parents according to censuses. Reported to be related to Jones family.

He is listed in one census as William J. Bruce. His full name probably is William Jefferson (or Jeffrey) Bruce.

If you have Bruce family information, would you please share with me?

Thanks,
Barbara

That would be the father of woodrow bruce who married Lottie Mae Odom (I have their marriage certificate 3/9/1941). Her mother was the daughter of Callie Williamson who was the sister of Ance, and Hardy Williamson of Baskin/ Rayville area. Ance was my father. In 1941 Jeff and his wife were living in Start La according to the marriage certificate. I have a copy if you need it.

Woodrow Bruce had 4 sons. 1 by his first wife, and 3 by Lottie, I believe. The younger 2 were twins. They did live in Start but later moved to Rayville.
