Looking at Charles John Emil Ruch's Family

The fifth child of Charles & Salome Ruch (third pregnancy) was their first boy. Charles John Emil, also the first born in Chicago, made his appearance on July 18, 1876. Just recently, I realized I had entered his birth year incorrectly in my database. I've had little other information on him with the exception of his listing with his address in the 1930 probate file from his mother. Since I had to correct his birth date anyway, I decided to do a quick check in Ancestry to see what I could find. Between Ancestry and the Chicago Tribune on Newsbank, I found much more than I expected in a short time. Below is the Register Report for Charles J E and family. I've highlighted the new surnames to my file. (This is great timing because I'm coming up on his birth in my story:))
