Lois, Possibly but all I have found has been Ruger. Are you
referring to prior to Jacob Ruger coming to the USA? I'd love to

a copy of a letter that was written by Jacob to his family is packed
away. Whenever they get settled I will have that in my hands and
will know more about where he came from and the spelling.
