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.

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.

Note*Jacob J. Ruhlmann; 1882 Buffalo city directory lists a Mrs. EupheniaRuhlman living at 535 S. Division St., could she be a daughter-in-law orNeice of Jacob Ferdinand? He was an old Lutheran? Preacher. 'Sophie,someday you'll understand' he said! (Quoted by Grace Ruhlman). In 1847he came to New York City with his parents. Could the Ruhlmanns beconnected with the Ebenezer Society of Buffalo, New York? We (JJR IV)think so! The Hammerschmidts were a part of the Society! According toTruman White's 'OUR COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE EIRIE CO., N.Y,' Page 242.He came to New York City with wife and children in 1847. JACOB J. RUHLMANN The name Ruhlman (Ruhlmann prior to John Jacob Ruhlman I) comesfrom the German name Rudolf. (See name derivation in Jacob FerdindandRuhlmann-Notes) Our family's story began in The Dukedom of Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany whenour immigrant ancestor Jacob Ferdinand Ruhlmann was born in 1795. ModernGermans call the area Baden-Wurttenburg. This general area of the Rhineriver valley near the French border was characterized in the early 1800sby continual conflict and border disputes between France and Germany.Cities in this area were sometimes in Germany and sometimes in France!Napolean of France was conquering the world; Germany was on the rise;most young men were drafted into one army or the other! One reason forthe German and French people of this era to immigrate to America wassimply to avoid Europe's wars! Another reason could have been religious freedom and idealism. (seeJacob Ferdinand Ruhlmann - Notes) A priceless paragraph is found in Truman C. White's Book: 'Our Countryand its People; a Descriptive Work on Erie County, New York'. Boston:Boston History Co., 1898. volume II, Page 242 In this paragraph, White fixes the coming to NYC of Jacob Ruhlman'sfather, Jacob Ferdinand Ruhlman as 1847. Jacob would have been 21. Theyfirst settled in NYC and then moved to Erie Co., New York. To the best of our knowledge, the Ruhlmanns came from the Dukedom ofHesse Darmstadt Germany, where Jacob Ferdinand Ruhlmann was born in1795. He Married Dorothy Hammerschmidt and they had seven children.Most of the children were educated in Germany. Jacob and DorothyRuhlmann brought at least Martin (age 14) and probably all seven childrento NYC in 1847 where Martin and probably the whole family worked as bootmakers. We are not sure when or where Jacob Ferdinand Ruhlmann died. Perhaps inNYC after 1847 (1852?)--or perhaps in Ebenezer in Erie Co., NY. TheDeath Certificate of his son Jacob Ruhlmann says that he lived in the USand Buffalo for 60 years; If that is true, the Ruhlmann family would havearrived here in 1857, not 1847! Jacob Ferdinand's wife, Dorothy Hammerschmidt is buried in the OldEvangelical Church Cemetery in Ebenezer, NY. We have a wonderful photoof the stone: Dorathea Ruhlmann, GEE (born) 15 Mai 1804 GEST. (died) 28Nov. 1881. So, according to Truman C. White, the seven children of Jacob Ferdinandand Dorothy Hammerschmidt Ruhlmann were: Jacob, Catherine, Phillip,Peter, Martin (b Sept 25, 1833 Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, died after 1898,Orchard Park, NY) George and Minnie. Our Branch of the Ruhlmans descend from the oldest son, Jacob J. Ruhlmann(the last to use the double nn?) who was born May 19, 1825 in HesseDarmstadt, Germany. He was married twice: The first wife was CatherineWise (According to the death certificate of their son, John Jacob Ruhlman(b. Sept 27, 1852 in NYC.) By 1875, according to the Erie County Census,West Seneca Section, Jacob was married to Anna Mary Dackman who was bornNov 2, 1812 in Germany and died in Ebenezer, Erie Co., NY June 16, 1899. I think Jacob J. Ruhlmann's first wife Catherine Wise died between 1852and 1875 either in NYC or Ebenezer; I would guess NYC, because brotherMartin came to Orchard Park (Erie Co.) NY in 1861. So far we have norecord of a grave marker for Catherine Wise Ruhlmann. Jacob and Catherine Ruhlmann must have had at least Martin J. Ruhlman(born 1850, NYC) and our John Jacob Ruhlman I (born Sept. 27, 1852 inNYC) while they were living in New York City. The obituary of Jacob J.Ruhlmann in the Buffalo Evening News in January of 1917 also lists somedaughters of Jacob: 'Mrs. George Behsman of New Jersey and Mrs. CharlesHensel' (probably of the local Buffalo area). An interesting lady, 'Mrs. Euthenia Ruhlman, 535 South Division Street,Buffalo, NY.' is listed in the 1882 Buffalo City Directory. Perhaps shewas a daughter in law or niece of Jacob Ferdinand Ruhlmann! It is important to read Clara Ruhlman McCue's account of Jacob J.Ruhlmann: 'He was a very devout Lutheran (Or Evangelical Church? JJRVI). Small, very neat with a neat white beard.' Grace Ruhlman Yaxley said that her great grandfather, Jacob J. Ruhlmanthe 'Old Lutheran Preacher' told his granddaughter in law Sophia OhmRuhlman: 'Sophie, Someday you'll understand' (during the time of herhusband, John Jacob Ruhlman II's drinking escapades). According to his death certificate, Jacob J. Ruhlmann was a shoemaker bytrade. He died January 14, 1917 at the home of his son, Martin J. Ruhlman, 241Adams Street, Buffalo, NY.

Note*Daniel Able Ruland was born on the 22nd of August, 1857, to Jackson W.and Mary Marie Ruland (Mary Marie's parentage is not known at this time1997), pioneer mercantile business owners at Rock Port, Missouri. Aftergraduating from Rockport High School he worked for a time as a typesetterin a printing office. Dan said he smoked but the haze became so thick hecouldn't see the type by coal oil lamp so he switched to 'chewing'. When he was nineteen he and Jerrett Todd decided to see the world and setout for the west coast en route to Hong Kong. On the 4th of July, 1876,they arrived in Hot Sulphur Springs, Colorado, where a celebration was inprogress. They witnessed a horse race between whites and Ute Indians. Here they learned of the Black Hills Gold Rush and decided to give up the ideaof Hong Kong, so headed north. Dan got a job in Cheyenne driving afreight wagon to Deadwood, arriving there in March 1877 with a four-horsewagon load of flour which sold for $22. cwt. from the wagon. Payment wasmade in gold dust. He also freighted from Sidney, Nebraska. In the summer of 1881, Dan worked for James A. Newland, father of JamesI. Newland, of Colony, on the first irrigation canal from Redwater Riverto Fruitdale, Dakota Territory. He later recalled that the horses wereknee deep in dust pulling the fresnos and scrapers and he would lookwestward to the Bear Lodge Mountains and see rain several days a week. He knew then wherehe was to eventually settle. Dan returned to Rock Port that late fall and on the 18th of May, 1882, heand two companions headed north with a herd of Shorthorn cattle. Theyarrived on False Bottom Creek, east of Spearfish, Dakota Territory, onthe 11th of July after a fifty-two day trip. The cattle were then trailedto Beaver Creek on the west side of the Bear Lodge Mountains (where his son Dillon now lives).There he cut 102 loads of wild hay with a scythe and cradle and stackedit. This he estimated would be one hay rack load for each head oflivestock, an ample amount for the winter ahead. He fenced the stack withAspen poles and built a dug-out for a cabin. His closest neighbor was Jess Lincoln Driskill onthe T+T Ranch at the mouth of Beaver Creek by the Belle Fourche River, adistance of about fifteen miles. Due to the extreme cold and deep snow that winter, Dan finally kicked thepoles from the stack fence and let the livestock eat their way into thehay for food and warmth. Even then many of the cattle were lost toexposure. Dan’s diary relates that on a fall day in 1883, he rode to a lake abouttwo and one half miles southwest to hunt deer. What he encountered was agrizzly bear which he shot with his .44 carbine rifle. The animal was solarge he couldn't’t move it to dress out. The next morning he rode toJohn Pearson’s sawmill for help. When his friend, Green Todd, a bearhunter saw the skin he declared it was the largest he had ever seen. In the spring of 1884 Dan filed on a pre-emption on Black Tail Creeksoutheast of the Hulett family. His brand was three lazy BBB’s. Otherbachelors named his cabin “The Guilt Edge” for reasons now unknown. Late one afternoon while hunting for meat Dan saw five buffalo on agrassy ridge with wall rock all around except to the northwest.Positioning himself at this entrance he knew his scent would drift towardthe buffalo. Soon they caught his scent and ran for the only escape. Heshot and dressed them and went back to the cabin, greased the wagon and got his tarps and blankets.Before daylight the next morning he left for Deadwood with the load ofmeat where he sold it to the miners for five cents a pound.

Note*Dillon Bacon Ruland, son of a pioneer family, was born 25th of July,1894, on Black Tail Creek on his father’s pre-emption near Hulett,Wyoming, to Dan and Lulu Belle (nee Dewing) Ruland. In 1897, at the age of three, Dillon accompanied his parents on an overland trip by team and wagon to Rockport, Missouri. They spent the 4th of July with his father’s uncle, Bailey Ruland, and family who owned and operated a restaurant at Custer South Dakota. While in Rockport, Mrs.Ruland dried fruit which was brought back to Wyoming that November. In 1904 the family had promise of brighter days on the west coast. They went by train to Seattle where Dan’s sister and family lived. At that time a depression hit and no work could be found so they returned to Wyoming to start anew. From the 21st of April to the 31st of December, 1913, Dillon worked for Charlie Wood on the Beaver Creek ranch for $35.00 a month. He relates that once he and another hired hand were haying in Lucky Gulch for Mr. Wood and they went to a spring to get a drink and water the horses. They had two cans, one to catch the water and the other with a cloth over it to strain out the 'wigglers'. It was so hot and men so thirsty the other man didn't’t take the time to strain in it. He just continued to drink then said, 'They are getting into a hell of a place.' One of Dillon’s boyhood buddies was Ben Mahoney. They would occasionally go prairie chicken hunting in Mahoney’s field southeast ofAlva. As shotgun shells were quite expensive for a couple of boys, they always waited until they could get two birds with one shot. While Dillon’s father operated the store in Alva the traveling salesmen would make their visits by horse and buggy. Dillon was eager to wager with them that he could hit a walnut or their silver dollar in mid-air with his .22 rifle. This venture kept him in ammunition money. Following the family tradition, Dillon built a new store building in Alva in 1916 on land he bought from Fred Aikman. Carpenters were Walter Osborn, Walter Hood, John Parkins and himself. In 1917, Dillon took the Civil Service examination for postmaster at Alva. He was appointed postmaster on the 11th of August, 1917, being the only postmaster of the seven to date, to hold that office, who took the Civil Service examination for the position. In 1918 he enlisted in the army and after two unsuccessful physical exams he was accepted. Dillon entered service on the 25th of July, 1918,and was discharged at Camp Funston, Kansas, on the 18th of December,1918. He served at Waco, Palace and Camp McArthur, Texas, as bayonet instructor having taken the training under two British officers. He was on overseas rosters twice but was held back to train new recruits in bayonet use.While in service Dillon leased his store to a brother-in-law, Ben P.Colvin, who was Assistant Postmaster during the period. Upon returning home Dillon operated the General Merchandise Store and Post Office until the 1st of July, 1946, when the store was sold to Merlin O’Haver who was appointed Postmaster at the time. On the 25th of June, 1919, Dillon and Frances Olivia Nilson, eldest daughter of Alfred and Hilda (nee Pearson) Nilson of the Alva Community, were united in marriage at Belle Fourche, South Dakota. Their only child, Elbert Dale, was born at Alva the 30th of October, 1922. Dale married Marry Catherine Kester on the 27th of November, 1947 and they have a son, Dan Albert, and a daughter, Elaine Marie. These children are both married and Elaine has two children. During the twenty-seven years they operated the store together Dillon freighted from Deadwood, Rapid City and Belle Fourche for the store: hauled grain to the elevator for local ranchers and operated his own ranch. Consequently, it fell upon Frances to operate the store and post office alone for the most part, besides being a mother and housewife. They sold groceries, dry goods, hardware, notions, gas and oil, farm machinery, radios and cars. Whatever the public needed, they would supply. During the depression years necessary credit was extended to any one in need, enabling many to survive those desperate years. On the 13th of May, 1943, Dillon accepted the Cooperative Weather Bureau Station previously operated by Albert Knowles. He still maintainsthe station today (1981) after nearly thirty-eight years as CooperativeObserver. Baseball was a popular sport in this community and Dillon played center field and pitcher for many years, playing with the Hulett, Alva and Aladdin teams. Another sport dear to his heart has been big game hunting. Yet today elk, moose, deer and antelope hunters will see him roaming the prairies and mountains with his 30-06 rifle and keeping up with the best of them. Another of his hobbies has been hunting and collecting Indian artifacts. It has been said that Frances and Dillon never met a stranger. This is attested by the number of visitors to their home throughout the years.
