Greetings from Sydney,
I've just discovered this thread and realise that my husband's Ruddell family line is directly tied to that of the Samuel and Rachel mentioned here. Samuel was the younger brother of my husband's gt-grandfather,John Ruddell who was born (as far as we know) in Ballintaggart and lived there until his old age. He died in 1953. John married Elizabeth Alexander in Loughgall in 1897.
We'd love to get in contact with other Portadown Ruddells and to find out more about the family - please drop us a line!
