Note*Remembrances of Clara Ruhlman Mc Cue (Born April 6, 1899 in Niagara Falls, New York, - Died October 9,1994 in Honolulu, Hawaii) -- She was the sister to our John JacobRuhlman II (born December 19, 1877 in Buffalo, New York, Died November 1, 1953, Niagara Falls, New York) -- As interviewed by her daughter Pat (Mc Cue) Paakaula in Honolulu,Honolulu Co., Hawaii in 1989 -- 'IT’S FUN JUST THINKING ABOUT THINGS THAT HAPPENED SOLONG AGO!' 'The Ruhlman Family came first from New York City, then to Orchard Park,Buffalo, and Niagara Falls in Erie County, New York. I’m not sure whenthey came to Niagara Falls. My father, JOHN JACOB RUHLMAN I (bornSeptember 27, 1852 in N.Y., N.Y.) fell from the roof while painting theCathedral in Buffalo and was never the same until he died. It wasevidently a very important job. He was not in good health until hisdeath (Feb. 20, 1920), in Niagara Falls, N.Y.) He decided at one timeto open a seafood place because lots of fish were available -- it wassmall and didn't do very well -- there were many other bigger places atthat time.' 'My mother (CAROLINE BALTZLY - born March 10, 1857 in Buffalo, N.Y., diedApril 21, 1928 in Niagara Falls) was a very gentle person -- quiet - infact too much so. We used to get angry at her for not telling somebodyoff --- But she never would. She was a very peaceful, quiet person.' 'My father (John Jacob Ruhlman I) had a very quick temper which, for alittle bit would be really quite violent -- but after it was over he wasalways very, very remorseful. For some reason or another (I guess I wasthe youngest child and very, very small), after one of those spells Iwould always go into the bedroom and sit by him and hold his hand -- heliked that! He was always very remorseful.' 'Our house (2507 - 13th St., Suspension Bridge, Niagara Falls, near therailroad switching yard) was a very comfortable house. We did have akitchen stove that burned wood or coal. We had a range with a tank inback for heating water. I can remember in the winter when everybody wasin the dining room, I’d go behind the stove and wash myself. It was so nice and warm.Normally we had a place off the pantry where we would wash, but thatplace was COLD in the winter. There was no indoor plumbing.' 'I remember a time when my sister CARRIE ('Tut' born October 2, 1894, inSuspension Bridge, m. 1. Walter Dominick 2. Clarence York d. February 24,1968, Niagara Falls, N.Y.) and I were home alone. We were gettingundressed and ready for bed -- Carrie was old enough to wear a corset.She unhooked her corset and just then I screamed because I saw someonelooking in the window. She got so frightened she dropped to he hands andknees and started fast across the bedroom floor with her corset flyingbehind her like wings! I just stood there and laughed because she lookedso funny! She really got very angry at me. I can still picture thatcorset up in the air like a wing.' 'My Mother (CAROLINE BALTZY) died in 1928 of cancer. My Father (JOHNJACOB RUHLMAN I) died in 1920. He had Pneumonia - whether there wasanything more or not, I don’t know.' 'My grandfather (JOHN JACOB RUHLMANN b. May 19, 1826, in Hesse-Darmstadt,Germany, died January 14, 1917 in Buffalo, N.Y.) used to come and visitus on 13th St. in Niagara Falls. He was a very small man with white hairand a white beard. He was the CLEANEST person. He was always washing.He was always washing his clothes and polishing his shoes. He was a veryreligious man. He used to teach me my catechism and if I didn't know it,or if I gave him the wrong answer, he’d pinch my ear!' 'My grandfather (JACOB RUHLMANN) loved to walk. We were at the fartherend of Niagara Falls from the falls. He would bribe me if I would walkup to the Falls with him. He would buy me something! At that timeeverything at Woolworth’s was either 5 or 10 cents -- I would gladlywalk! We’d go to Woolworth’s and that always took a great deal of timebecause I HAD to look over everything and could select what I wanted.I’d get a 10 cent present and sometimes I’d get an extra 5 cent present(and that would be a Big day.) I’d be so delighted and then we’d walkhome. It must have been way over a couple of miles. When we got to theFalls, we’d sit down on the bench for awhile and look, then we’d walk onhome. I always liked that. He was a very kind person - a very religiousman -- and a very good man. He lived in Buffalo where his other son, myfather’s brother, lived. (MARTIN J. RUHLMAN b. April 7, 1850 NYC, diedJune 21, 1919).' 'We always had animals -- dogs, cats -- my brother (Eddie b. June 27,1892 died Sep 26, 1977, Niagara Falls) always had lots of animals. Heliked rabbits. We had some bantam chickens that were very tame andfriendly. They had the run of the yard. In fact, my mother would getannoyed because, if the door was left opened, they’d come in the house!Eddie had frogs, toads, -- anything he could find.' 'We had a horse and a nice carriage. My father and my mother would rideup to the Falls with one seat between them. My mother would put acushion down on the floor for me. I would sit on it -- I loved it whenwe would go up to the Falls. One time my father decided we should have apicture taken up at the Falls. That picture was called a tin type (printed in metal) -- in fact,I think that tin type is still around somewhere! (We have it! we beingJohn Jay Ruhlman IV and Nancy). In the background they had a picture ofthe Falls. I valued that picture for years. I thought it was reallyquite wonderful.' 'Father liked a beer. The beer man would come with a huge, huge wagonwith two horses hitched to it. When Charlie (his name was Charlie Weber)would deliver beer, he would drive into our yard. Always there was abench in our back yard and Charlie would sit down with my father andthey’d drink a bottle of beer and talk together. My mother didn't like the beer wagon coming.She always was kind of worried that our minister would make a social callwhen the beer wagon was there. IT HAPPENED! Why my mother didn't have aheart attack, I'll never know! But Reverend Kurtz (from the FirstEvangelical Church, Niagara Falls?) walked into the yard. My mother was fit to betied -- My father very calmly asked Rev. Kurtz if he would have a glassof beer and he answered: You know, I really would; I can’t tell you whenI last had a glass of beer. My father never did get over that -- tellingabout a glass of beer with the Reverend.' 'My mother bought a bottle of something she always had in the house. Itwas called Horn’s Balm. If you had a stomach ache, you’d take hot waterand put a little bit of Horn’s Balm in it and you drank it. If you had atoothache, she got a piece of cotton, soaked it in Horn’s Balm and put itin the cavity. As far as I can remember, that was about the onlymedicine that we took. We were never, never without Horn’s Balm! If youhad an aching joint, you rubbed it with Horn’s Balm. We always had a bigbottle of Horn’s Balm in the house.' 'We always had lots of children from our neighborhood in our yard. Allthe neighborhood kids would congregate and no one told them not to doit. You be happy and have a wonderful childhood without a lot of money.I think now (1989) children don’t go for entertaining themselves somuch. They want what all the other children have, naturally! All theother children have these new expensive toys so kids now probablywouldn't be as happy as we were then.' 'Mom and Dad (John Jacob Ruhlman and Caroline Baltzly) never owned theland the house was on. It was on the New York Central Railroad property(See map in their scrapbooks). They rented it for many years. John, myoldest brother, got married to Sophia Ohm from New York City. They had ahouse built right near us. (Cleveland Ave.?) He owned the house, but theground was rented from the Railroad. They lived there a long, long time.' 'We were never lacking in company. I guess both my mother and fatherliked company and all our relatives from Buffalo would come down toNiagara Falls. My father had a great big table and benches built so asmany as would or could come -- there wouldn't be any limit. In thesummer we usually would eat out in the yard with that great big table.We always had lots and lots of company.' (Pat then asked her mother Clara): 'Were the Kaplans (Sp?) from yourfather’s side or your mother’s side?' (We (John Jay and Nancy Rulman IV)think she answered); 'Mother’s (BALTZLY) side. Uncle Ernst owned abrewery; they (KAPLANS?, BALTZLY) were a very well to do family inBuffalo. She (CAROLINE BALTZLY?) had another sister.' 'My brother Eddie drowned in the cistern. The cover was off. My sisterBertha remembered Father took a pole and pulled him out' 'The only grandparents I knew was my father’s father. (John JacobRuhlmann, b May 19, 1825, Dukedom of Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany, d. January14, 1917, Buffalo, N.Y.). I knew Uncle Martin Ruhlman and Aunt Mary;they had two sons Hilly and Howard?) My girlfriend Nellie and I neverliked to have Martin’s sons (my cousins, Hilly and Howard) sit with us inchurch (First Evangelical Church, Niagara Falls?). Hilly was the oldestone and Howard was more our age. Howard loved to sing the hymns. He wasoff key and out of tune! If only he would sing quietly -- but he sangway out loud! Nellie and I would have something to do until we found outhe’d sit in church, then we’d go sit on the other side.' 'Another time, Nellie and I really got it -- Oh my mother was so mad! Wewent to church and my father wore a derby hat. He took his hat off andput it under the pew ahead of on the floor. When it was getting time forchurch to be over -- he bent down and came up and bumped his head on thepew and said 'Damn it' -- right in church! Nellie and I stared to laughand we both got a hit. My mother was so mortified -- and she was mad atNellie and I for laughing.' 'The Railroad men would come over quite a bit and talk to my father. Iused to love to sit and listen to them. They had so many stories to tellabout robberies and so on. I was just fascinated.' 'There were some woods not too far from us. I used to go there a lot.At that time you could wander anywhere and be perfectly safe. No oneever had to check on me. It was safe back then. There was a little pondand my friend and I would sit there by the hour and watch the pollywogsand frogs. One day I found an open cloth bag in the woods. The bag was full of all kinds ofthings from a robbery! My dad got the railroad detective and I got areward of a doll that was in the bag!' 'My cousin Ralph Baltzly (my mother’s brother John Baltzly’s son) livedreal near us. My aunt (Anna?) was selling gasoline irons. Mother boughtone of them to iron clothes. Can you imagine anything so dangerous? Shewas so pleased and proud of her iron.' 'Lots of times when I am running the washer and dryer, I think of thewash board and scrubbing by hand. My mother finally got a washing machine-- it had a crank on it. My father had to do that! What a greatimprovement that was over scrubbing! It’s no wonder that women livelonger now. I often wonder what my mother would think about me puttingmy clothes in the washer and the dryer -- then I sit down to eat mybreakfast while THEY work! So, it’s no wonder my mother seemed like an older person -- things theyhad to do then!' -- CLARA RUHLMAN MC CUE, 1989.

Note*Howard O. ‘Nun’ Ruhlman had some conflict with his father, John Jacob Ruhlman II, of Niagara Falls, New York. He worked for a while on a ship on the Great Lakes and then joined the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Laredo, Texas at Fort McIntosh. There he met a lady of Spanish decent named Carlota ‘Lottie’ Dovalina. They were married in Laredo in 1929. Lottie’s great-grandfather? was a very honorable man. He was deeded a huge land grant by the Spanish government extending about 50 miles East and North of Laredo. At the end of each year he would 'settle up' to the merchants for all his debts for farm equipment, etc. On those occasions he would deed vast acreage to pay his debts for perhaps the equivalent of 10 cents per acre! (see notes about Capt. Don Jose Vasquez Borrego, Lottie’s Ancestor). Their son, son, Howard (Harold) tells the story of his father: 'Howard Sr. had a small business in Laredo. He delivered potato chips, pickled hot dogs, etc. to many bars and restaurants. One day, a big tough man in a bar called him an SOB. Howard Sr. laid his glasses and sales order forms on the bar and proceeded to punch the name caller in the face until he 'slid down the wall calling for mercy' ---'Now just stay on the floor until we leave. That’s where snakes belong!' Howard Sr. and his son Howard, proceeded to slowly and deliberately drink their orange drinks while their intruder still whimpered on the floor. 'Now if I ever see you again in the street, you cross the street to the other side when I come by --- that’s how I treat a snake' said Howard Sr. -- Howard Ruhlman, May, 1996 Howard’s daughter, Lee Ruhlman Terry had wonderful memories of her father at the Ruhlman Family Reunion in Redding, Shasta Co., California, July1995: 'My dad was Howard Ruhlman, the second oldest in John Ruhlman II family. He joined the U.S. Army and came to Texas via Galveston. Dad married my mother Carlota ‘Lottie’ Dovalina, a seventh generation Texan in 1929.He was very well known in Texas --- and was a friend to everyone. He was on the Laredo Police Force while I was growing up and everybody called him 'Sarge'. He was third in command when he left the police force to work for himself. He owned 'Atomic Sales' and sold potato chips, Roncomacaroni, etc. He owned a potato chip factory at one time and also owned the first bowling alley in Laredo. Dad was self-educated. He didn't speak Spanish when he married mom, but realized he needed it in business, so he taught himself and later spoke it fluently! I didn't realize how well known Dad was until I left Laredo. When we moved to Freeport, Brazonia Co., Texas, Bunny Gray (a BISD school board member) and I were visiting. When she heard I was from Laredo, she asked if I knew Howard Ruhlman. I said 'that’s my dad'. It seems he had come to Freeport when he was President of the Lulac’s League of the United Latin American Citizens. He started the 'Escuelitas' schools for underprivileged Latin children. He was the first Anglo President of that organization. Another time, my husband and I were at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo with a group from La Grange. Sheriff Flournoy from La Grange who was made famous on the stage and screen in 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas' was sitting next to me. When he heard I was from Laredo, he asked 'Do you know Howard Ruhlman?' I said, 'That’s my Dad!' He had met Dad at Pistol Meets. Dad was a sharpshooter and traveled all over Texas and Mexico on a Pistol Team. Dad was a very happy man. He loved his family, loved to fish, golf, play cards, play dominos, play pool -- he excelled at everything he did. He converted to Catholicism and is buried in the Catholic cemetery in Laredo. There is a Ruhlman Drive in Laredo that my brother Howard and sister-in-law Julia have named in their Industrial Park. The Ruhlmans are also remembered in the brick paving at St. Augustine Cathedral were Mother and Daddy were married and my brother Howard and I were baptized and made our first communion. He was so proud of his sisters and brothers. Uncle Johnny, (John Jacob Ruhlman III) visited with us before he married Aunt Kathryn. Aunt Florence and Uncle Carl Wheeler made several visits to Laredo and so did Aunt Dorothy and Uncle George Moore. Also, Uncle Dick and Aunt Clara Riffle and Aunt Helen and Uncle Al Eisenhart visited us in Laredo. Aunt Grace Yaxley never came, but we heard from her often. I saw Grandpa Ruhlman (John Jacob Ruhlman II) once, and all I can remember is that he wanted to buy me some ice skates -- I said 'it never snows in Texas!' Uncle Johnny (John Jacob Ruhlman III) spoke at Dad’s funeral - it was like seeing a younger version of Dad. They were eleven years apart. --Same smile, same gestures -- and that’s what I find here at this wonderful Reunion! I see my children and grandchildren’s faces in my cousins and aunts! The Ruhlman blood lives on! It has been a privilege being here. I thank you for the opportunity to share a little part of my Dad’s life.' --- Lee Ruhlman Terry, July,1995.

Finally, one of them did it, but instead of taking thehead off, she cut off only the beak and the turkey ran around squawkingwith a bloody face!.

Note*'Sophia, why don't you leave him?' begged relatives, friends and neighbors. 'He’ll never be anything but a drunken bum.' This was the home into which John Jacob Ruhlman III was born in Niagara Falls, NY on March 26, 1917 and died 23 Nov 1978 at Seattle, King County, Washington, U.S.A. and is buried at Sunset Hills cemetery, Bellevue, King County, Washington, U.S.A. next to son, Robert Charles Ruhlman. John, at the age of four, was instrumental in leading his drunken father to a little gospel meting in that poorer section of the city where his father was gloriously saved. Then things really began to happen. John's father began to tell everyone about the wonderful life he had found in Christ. He began holding services on the Tuscarora Indian Reservation where he preached for twenty-seven years. Today the meetinghouse is called the Ruhlman Memorial Chapel. On a short, John's parents visited the Practical Bible Training School near Binghamton, New York. 'From that day on, Ma prayed that one of her children would some day be a student there.' His mother, Sophie Ohm, died in childbirth May 9, 1930 when John was only13 years old. Shortly afterward, his father took the children on a camping trip near Olcott, New York, in order to ease the pain of their mother’s passing. While visiting a little church where the Sunday school teacher gathered a little group of boys (John, thirteen years of age was among them) and offered a beautiful watch 'to anyone who would take it.' Not one of the young boys reached out. Finally, one of the boys timidly got up and went over to take the watch from the teacher. Young John could have kicked himself for not taking the watch! That wise teacher then said, 'that's how it is with salvation; it is offered to all, but taken by faith by only a few'. 'A gift is not a gift until it is received!' 'For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life' (John 3:16). That evening the words still burning in his heart, John received Christ as his own personal Savior as a result of the efforts of that unnamed Sunday School teacher! John's mother's prayers were certainly answered. One after another, six of the Ruhlman children graduated from high school and enrolled at Practical Bible Training School: Grace (Mrs. D. Thurlow Yaxley), Helen(Mrs. Albert Eisenhart), Florence (Mrs. Carl Wheeler, Clara (Mrs. Richard Riffle), Dorothy (Mrs. George Moore), and John Ruhlman, Sr., all graduated and became servants of the Lord. After graduating from La Salle High School in Binghamton, he enrolled at the Practical Bible Training School at Bible School Park, near Binghamton, New York and while attending the school, John served as an assistant pastor to Dr. Genaung at the First Baptist Church of Athens, Pennsylvania. Upon graduation in 1938 he became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Springfield Center, New York. While pastoring as a bachelor at Springfield Center, his sister, Mrs. Helen Eisenhart, asked him to come to Lindley, New York, 'to help do some painting around the parsonage.' John later confided: 'I met a beautiful young lady by the name of Kathryn Hamond, and believe me, I fell in love with her very rapidly.' It was Pastor Albert Eisenhart who performed the simple ceremony at the rural Lindley Community Church, September 18, 1940. From 1941 until 1944 John Ruhlman pastored two churches in Pennsylvania: the West Lennox Baptist Church of Hop Bottom, and the South New Milford Baptist Church. While pastoring there, two children were born into the Ruhlman home, John, Jr. and Ruthanne (Mrs. Darrell Beddoe). His last pastorate before coming to the Pacific Northwest was Bradford Baptist Church of Bradford, New York, where he served 1944-1946. (While pastoring his first small church in upstate NY, he also led the choir. There was an especially opinionated, outspoken choir member who had something to 'suggest' during the choir practice. Finally, he blurted out: 'I'm running this choir, Mrs. McCready!'...That has been a Ruhlman family saying ever since!) Meanwhile, the First Baptist Church of Bellevue in far-off Washington State wanted to be out of the Convention. Pastor Albert Eisenhart of Sedro Woolley recommended a young fundamentalist named John Ruhlman to the pulpit. To candidate, he took the train from Toronto to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Recalling that experience, John said, 'Believe me, it was quite a trip in those days; it was raining as usual, in Vancouver when I arrived and found Eiseharts and Wheelers waiting for me.' He was called by the Bellevue church at the recommendation of his in-laws Carl Wheeler of First Baptist of Ferndale and Albert Eisenhart of the First Baptist Church of Sedro Woolley, Skagit Co., WA. After selling his furniture in Bradford, New York, he arrived in Bellevue on July 10, 1946, with a carload of keepsakes, books, a wife, two preschool children and three dollars in his wallet! The salary was eighteen dollars per week. For eight years (1946-1954) he pastored the First Baptist Church of Bellevue. In those years a parsonage was purchased on Nine-ninth Street; the church voted to withdraw from the Northern Baptist Convention and to fellowship with the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches. When growth made it necessary, property was purchased on Lake Washington Boulevard (the present church site) for a new building. Thomas Paul (now pastor at Grace Baptist Church, Wilson Creek, Washington) was born in Kirkland, while his father was pastor of the First Baptist Church of Bellevue, WA. John Ruhlman early recognized the vast growth potential on the east side and was burdened to start another church in the Eastgate area of Bellevue. With James R. Newman as the assistant pastor, he organized the First Baptist Church of Eastgate where he pastored for thirteen years (1954-1967). John and Kathryn moved to 4005-147th Pl. S.E., Eastgate, Bellevue. The building of the auditorium and educational unit was a major part of his ministry at Eastgate. Kaylene Joan, the youngest of the four Ruhlman children, was born during this time. In 1968, John Ruhlman, Sr. became pastor of the Tukwila Baptist Church of Seattle. From a reconditioned machine shop, the church has remodeled the building, improved the parsonage and added some portable buildings in order to accommodate the growth. The mortgage on the property has been burned, leaving the church debt-free. Characteristic of his modesty and family priorities, he told his son, John, Jr., 'Your mother has been my greatest help (aside from the Holy Spirit and the Lord Himself). She is the one who prays the hardest, works the hardest, and believes the hardest that God is able.' At the end of John, Jr.'s interview, his Dad quoted the old saying: Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. 'It seems that lasting work has been done; in particular, and the Regular Baptists of the Northwest, in general, have ultimately been blessed by the faith of my grandmother Sophie (who believed God could change her husband), and my father, John J. Ruhlman, Sr., (who believed God called him to preach in far-off Washington State). 'But without faith it is impossible to please Him' (Heb; 11:6). John Jacob Ruhlman III died there on Thanksgiving evening November 23, 1978. At his funeral at the First Baptist Church of Eastgate (which he founded), approximately 700 people attended the service. Son in Law Darrell Beddoe and sons Thomas Paul and John, Jr. presided. He was buried next to his infant son Robert Martin Ruhlman at Sunset Hills Memorial Cemetery in Bellevue, Washington.
