Hi I'm from Vancouver Wa. Originaly from Albany Ore. My family originated in the Lewiston Idaho area. My grandfather was Lester (Babe) Ruark. He had several brothers but i cant remember all their names, here are a few, by the way their all deceased:
Arthur, Ray, Chester(?), Floyd, and more.
Sisters: Lula, Cora, and more

Gene Leslie Ruark is my father and resides in Albany, Or. His brother Verle D. Ruark (deceased) His sisters June Slaton, and Janice Lauinger, both in Albany, Or.

This is interesting to me, Ruark is an uncommon name and somehow I think we are all related in some way or another. Please contact me if i can help in any other way!!
