CHRONOLOGY OF THE RUHE MIGRATION


FOURTH GENERATION

NOTE:  Some descendants of the 4th Generation, are still living, therefore only general information will be provided to protect their "privacy."

Ella M. Ruhe (daughter of Henry F.)

1885--September 18, first born child Ella M. born in/near Lyons, Logan Twp., Burt Co., Nebraska.

1887--March 6, Ella M. died in Lyons, Logan Twp., Burt Co., Nebraska.  Buried in Grace Lutheran Cemetery, Bertha, Burt Co., Nebraska.

Waldo E. RUHE (son of Henry F.)

1887 -- May 27, Waldo E. born in Logan Twp., near Lyons, Burt Co., Nebraska.

1887 -- October 8, Ada Grace McKown was born in Malvern, Mills Co., Iowa. Note: There is some difference between family members as to the exact location of the birth of Ada G. However, in 1885 Census reports show that father John B. McKown was working in Malvern, Iowa as a clerk and had remained at this location until after the birth of Ada G. There were two groceries and one mercantile store in Malvern with a population of about 100 inhabitants. Also the obituary of Ada G. states she was born in Malvern. More documentation is needed.

1895 -- Iowa State Census record indicates Ada Grace McKown living with parents and siblings in Indian Creek Township, Mills County, Iowa at the age of 7 years.

1900 -- June 4, Census record indicates Waldo E. is attending school in Lyons, Burt Co., Nebraska.

1900 -- Census record indicates Ada Grace McKown is attending school in Emerson, Mills Co., Iowa.

1905 -- Ada G., parents and siblings move to Bancroft, Cuming Co., Nebraska. Note: There is some difference in facts about the location to which the McKown family moved. The obituary of John B. indicates the family moved to Bancroft soon after the death of his youngest daughter in Iowa. However, the obituary of Margaret C. McKown states they moved to Pender, Thurston Co., Nebraska in 1905. We can not find a Census report to corroborate this fact, however, it is interesting that members of the Bring family lived in Pender and engaged in the Mercantile business, the very same as John B. Further the son of "said" Bring family ask Ada to work for them in Oakland, Nebraska, also a Merchantile business. We believe a close connection between families but are unable to confirm these facts at this time.

1910 -- May 18, Census record indicates Waldo E. is working on Sheep Ranch/Farm for Henry McKenzie near Oakland, Burt Co., Nebraska, and a frequent visitor to the Bring Mercantile store in Oakland.

1910 -- May 18, Census record indicates Ada G. is working as clerk for a Mercantile General Store owned by the Bring Family in Oakland, Burt Co., Nebraska. (See the Diary of Ada Grace McKown for additional information about her activities during this time).  Note: 1900 Census records show the
Bring family living in Pender, Nebraska and engaged in the Mercantile business at the same time Ada's father John B. was also supposed to be engaged in the same Trade. Would assume the families knew each other.

1913 -- May 4, Waldo E. marries Ada Grace McKown in Grand Island, Hall Co., Nebraska. The newlyweds begin working as Ranch-hand and Cook on the Sheep and Cattle Ranch/Farm for the McDonald brothers, near Abbott, Hall Co., Nebraska situated near the Prairie Creek.

Finding the life extremely hard and difficult on his family, especially after the loss of a child, Waldo moved to Grand Island, Hall Co., Nebraska to seek more gainful employment. He began work with the Nebraska Highway Department.
