I am David Werner Ruoff. I live in New Hampshire (USA). My Father is Andrew Charles Ruoff. He was born in 1941 in Smithtown, NY. His father (my grandfather) had the same name and was born and raised in the same area of NY. His father (my great grand father) was Erwin Karl Ruoff, who immigrated to NY in about 1912 with his wife Elsa Ruoff. They were from Stuttgart, Germany. Erwin had three sisters in Stuttgart. I am still trying to find out their names.
For many years, my Erwin and Andrew (my grandfather) ran "Ruoff's Restaurant" on Long ISland in Smithtown, NY.
