"Uncle John was a salesman and a farmer. He used to sell kitchen ranges in the rural areas of Michigan especially. I believe they were called [Home Comfort].

He lived most of his life around Allen, Quincy, Coldwater, and the Hillsdale, Michigan area." John and Minda had one daughter:

A short story of his life comes to us from Virgil Boyd Strickland, who was his niece. "Rudd was a born salesman and trader. During the depression years he sold "Rat Guns". I have a picture of him holding up rats he had exterminated with the guns. Later he sold "chicken markers". These were markers that tattoed a number on the chicken wings so that thieves stealing chickens could be caught easier. (Lots of chicken stealing from farmers in those days.) He had a crew of men selling them along with him and they traveled fromstate to state-Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky-selling to farmers. They were endorsed by the sheriffs department. The crew included, George S. Boyd, Orville Britton, Warren Strickland and others. This was at a time when no jobs were available. As a child I remember when he was married to Ella. They used to cut wood and sell it. She helped him and used the crosscut saw. He always lived in the Logansport, Peru area after they moved to Indiana from Ohio. Rudd also sold wood stoves and after the war he had an antique store in Logansport." Rudd and Ella had two daughters: PHOTOS
