“This site is intended to explore, share, highlight and celebrate descendants of David Little Ruckman (1795-1845) and his wife Priscilla Catherine Wade (1799-1859).

This branch of Ruckmans was one of the earliest white settlers in and around what is now Pocahontas County, West Virginia. Numerous descendants have been and are still prominent in that area. Property first purchased by David Little Ruckman in 1832 has been owned and occupied by their descendants ever since.

Although much information is in-hand about this lineage, we solicit additional documents, photographs and other family records which enhance an understanding of our families. So, if you have items of interest and are willing to share them, please contact us to discuss how to do that. We (the collective we) will be grateful.
