Yes, my e-mail address has changed. I thought I had notified everyone, but
have found that I overlooked quite a few.
I don't know anything about the Ruff's you mention, but I will ask a Mercer
descendant in Walstonburg about them. Jacob Mercer married Elizabeth Ruff,
daughter of Redden Ruff. I am still not sure if Redden was John's brother
or if he was John's son. Most people seem to think he was Daniel's son and
therefore John's brother.
I will get back to you as soon as I can contact Tony. Thank you for giving
me this information.
