Name: Stephen Martin RUCKMAN
Given Name: Stephen Martin
Some info on descendants from a paper compiled by Raleigh O'Key Coleman, June 30th, 1967 in Salt Lake City. Paper claims Stephen Martin Ruckman was from a long line of Rabbis- and his family disowned him when he converted. [all records indicate his ancestors were baptist back to John Ruckman II (1635-1703). Gives the spelling Reukmann and says went back to Germany, Austria and Palestine. Believe the data on Stephen Martin Ruckman's descendants basicly acurate, but should be checked.
