Rookstool Family Genealogy Forum
Charles NICOLAI is listed in 1930 IN Elkhart Co. Benton Twp. with wife Ara and wife's brother Myron ROOKSTOOL. Also listed is dau. Erma I. BYLAND, granddau. Phyllis M. BYLAND. I have ROOKSTOOL (Susanna) & JUDAY (John) in my line from the Benton area but I am not familiar with Ara ROOKSTOOL.
This same family is listed in same area for 1900, 1910. Only thing is a Katherine/Catherine ROOKSTOOL widow is listed in household as Mother-in-law, not a Mary Ellen. In 1900 it shows Charles and Ara A. were married 8 years, that would put marriage about 1892. Hope this helps.
