Another one for your consideration. We've heard from various other
sources that James Ruark md Elizabeth Longo, and their son John Ruark md
Mary Driscall. This line has a new descent from there. Any thoughts,
or problems with this? I haven't seen Mary Ruark (daughter of John &
Mary) mentioned elsewhere.
