Looking for Rucks-Still-Hirthe

Surnames: Rucks, Still, Hirthe
My in-laws are the Rucks, but the other family lines are Still and Hirthe. My ex-husbands grandfather is supposedly Gerald Rucks of Wisconsin, he had 6 children with Bonita <Still> Rucks, I am assuming was his wife. Bonita's fathers name was Carl or Karl Still. I have a mother of one or another named Hilda Rucks (I was told this is Bonita's mother), which I do not know if it is her maiden or married name. Bonita was born in Sturgeon, WI in 1935. She also had another child with Gordon (or Gorgon) Hirthe, whi si supposedly Gerald Rucks brother. This is what I am told. Sorry if I am confusing. This family line is confusing me also. If anyone has any information please e-mail me @, I could use what ever information anyone can give. Thanks!

Surnames: Rucks-Stull-Hirthe
I made a mistake.....The surname is Stull not Still. I have found the Rucks family......but I have made no progress is finding the Hirthe or Stull family lines. I am also thinking that the supposed Gerald actually Gerald Hirthe, and Gordon (his brother) may just be Gordon Rucks. Is there anyone out there who knows these families from Wisconsin......around Fond du Lac, and Door counties? Please Help! Kimberly

I am also confused with the Hirthe Lines. A Gordon Hirthe married Marion C(K)luberton/Klubertanz line, which is my line. I have the Klubertanzes back to 1590. I will email you to see if you can sort anyof my Hirthes.
