Surname Saturday

It's Surname Saturday and a good time to list the surnames in the family line I'll be working on this coming year.

Beginning with the immigrant couple (direct line highlighted in red):

Charles RUCH born 05 Dec 1851 in Bouxwiller, Bas-Rhin, France; died 10 Dec 1888 in Chicago, IL.
Salome Jubel SIEGLER born 13 Sep 1850 in Bouxwiller, Bas-Rhin, France; died 05 Apr 1930 in Chicago, IL.

Charles and Salome were married 30 Mar 1873 in Erie, Erie Co., PA.

They had nine children:

1. Caroline Magdalena RUCH born 09 Sep 1873 in Erie, Erie Co., PA; married John A GEHRINGER 25 Aug 1890 in Chicago, IL. Died 13 Oct 1952.
2. Eva Salomea RUCH born 09 Sep 1973 in Erie, Erie Co., PA; married Louis BOUCHONVILLE ; died 28 Oct 1945 in Chicago, IL.
3. Lisette Emma RUCH born 21 Nov 1874 in Erie, Erie Co., PA; married Thomas HIGGINS 05 Aug 1903 in Chicago, IL; died 25 Jul 1966
4. Louise Julie RUCH born 21 Nov 1874 in Erie, Erie Co., PA; married Charles BROWN 08 Sep 1901 in Chicago, IL; died 19 May 1970
5. Mary RUCH born 21 Nov 1878 in Chicago, IL; married Fred REINHARD 29 Aug 1922; died 16 Jan 1974 in Chicago, IL.
6. Alice RUCH born 24 Mar 1882 in Chicago, IL; died 13 Feb 1899.
7. Margaret RUCH born 24 Mar 1882 in Chicago, IL; married Oscar FELL; died 18 May 1938.
8. George Henry RUCH born 29 Dec 1885 in Chicago, IL; married Margaret MOHLE; died 12 Mar 1949 in Chicago IL.
9. Charles RUCH born 26 Jul 1886; died 20 Apr 1971.

Yes, folks just in case you were paying attention; there were 3 sets of twins in the mix.

That's probably enough for this round.
