I am trying to trace back beyond my Great-grandfather, John Raymond Ruckart of Knoxville (1887-1969). He was a member of Euclid Avenue Baptist Church and lived in the Ailor Avenue/Euclid Avenue area. His father was George Ruckart (b. abt 1854), I assume also of Knoxville (although I have no documentation to this). His mother was Ellen Sams Richarts (on whose family I have found much).

John Raymond married Laura J. Medlin (1887-1957). Their children were Edith Ruckart Carter (my grandmother), Ralph Raymond Ruckart ("Ray", 1914-1971), Clarence Leon Ruckart ("Leon" 1920-2007), Paul K. Ruckart ("Paul" or "Pud" to the family, 1922-1973)and Mildred Ruckart (b. 1924).

Any assistance in tracking back further would be appreciated. I now live in Texas & hands-on research is not possible. I am restricted to on-line archives & files.

hank you in advance for any help you can provide.
