Jim's RUCH/RUGH/RUGG Page

Updated January 28, 2011


My RUCH family is from Zutzendorf in Bas-Rhin, Alsace. I am most interested in proving that this family originated in Switzerland, possibly Zurich, Duerrenroth or Sumiswald, and before that Sankt Gallen. The spelling may have originally been Rugg.
Melchior Ruch (b. abt Dec 1644? in Bouxwiller, Alsace?, d. 25 Apr 1720 in Alteckendorf, Alsace) was a shephard in Zutzendorf. He m 2nd Maria, widow of Hans Rauscher.

One son Hans Georg Ruch (my ancestor) immigrated with his family to Phildaelphia 17 Aug 1733 aboard the ship Samuel, and settled in Lehigh Co, Pa. His tombstone - undoubtedly in error - showed that he died in 1769 at age 104.

This is all the Ruchs I know; however I have much more on the descendants of Michael RUGH 1723-1820 than the one generation shown here. I'd love to hear from you!
