Thanks for your persistence on this! Elizabeth (Hittle) and George Ruggles were the parents of Mary Ellen (Ruggles) who married Leonard Wilson. Elizabeth is my great grand aunt and daughter of my 2nd great grandparents, Joseph and Mary Hittle, who also are buried there at Poplar Grove.

Your work on this gives me insight into a branch of my family that I did not already have catalogued, so I definitely appreciate your work!

Mary Ellen and Leonard along with daughter Rosella are also buried at Poplar Grove (you probably already knew that). What I have not yet found is the location of Elizabeth and George's graves. It appears that George remarried after Elizabeth's death. According to census, probate and land records I am able to decipher that George and Elizabeth had at least 4 children:
Mary Ellen - m. Leonard Wilson,
Catherine/Carolyn - m. Gilson Norris,
Salome A. - m. James Moller
George Elam Ruggles.

If you have inroads on the families of those 4, I'd definitely appreciate an update. Which of course causes me to ask, are we cousins? :-)

Thanks Again!
