Ruth Maria HOLLY, 1858-1944 was born in Sullivan Township, daughter of Mary WOOD and Joseph Wilson HOLLY. In 1876 she married Freeman WELCH. They had two children, Willard (1877-1881), Leigh (1882 - old age), and possibly a boy born 1887, a few months after the death of Freeman who died at age thirty of consumption (Tuberculosis). 04 NOV 1891, Ruth married Menzo MUDGE and had the three children shown in the photo at left. I was her first great grandchild. She died six weeks after I was born, but my mother managed to get me to see her in spite of gas rationing. Even though Ruth was bedridden and blind she was able to be introduced to her first great grandchild. 
Menzo Amos MUDGE, 1858-1911, Was born on the Mudge Farm, son of Lucy BRONSON and Amos MUDGE. In 1888 he married Stella WELCH who died in 1889. He died in 1911 on the farm where he was born and lived all his life. He married Ruth HOLLY in 1891.
