Am trying to find who Ethel's parents were. Most seem to have them as John S, Ruckman & Martha Jane Ruckman, however they seem to be siblings not married. Their parents - Anthony A. Ruckman (1830-1872) & Charity Crimmons (1843-?). I have found marriages for both - John to Mary Etta Smith and Martha to Charles A. Entrican. Edgar Co., IL marriage info give these a first marriage for both John & for Martha. Ethel Mae Ruckman doesn't appear until she marries Peachy in 1907. In none of the census following their marriages is there an Ethel Mae Ruckman as daughter or step-daughter with either of them, nor is she with either grandparents. Please- who are her real parents? Ethel married Peachie Swiger & Sylvester Fidler and is with Sylvester in Terre Haute city directories 1927, 1929, 1934, 1936-1940. She died 10 Feb 1942 in Vigo Co., IN. Can anyone help? The Fidler line is the one I am currently following. Lorraine
