Here's the full transcribed marriage article for Ellen "Cissy" Cox. It appears her husband to be, Harvey Ruchty, worked with her Uncle Harvey Martin at Buchanan Lumber.

September 4, 1916

Miss Cisse Ellen Cox and Harvey Burton Ruchty were married at noon Saturday at the home of the brides uncle Harvey Martin on the  West Side by Rev. J.C. Baker bride was attended by Miss Lillian Pearl Ruchty, a sister of the groom and Walter Martin acted as best man.
 
In the afternoon following the wedding ceremony the young couple were tendered a reception by their friends at the Martin home.
 
The employes of the the Buchanan Lumber company came to the home in a body and J.L Bicker on behalf of the men presented the couple with a library table and two rockers. The groom is an employee of the Buchanan Lumber company and the couple will go at once to be their new home on Brawne  avenue.
 
The bride has been a resident of Olympia for about three years. She is formerly of London, England

Mr Martin was accompanied on his return to the United States by his sister, Mrs Drage of England who is visiting relatives in Grandview before coming to Olympia.



It appears the "Mrs Drage" is Harvey's sister Sarah. Also it appears Sarah's daughter lives in Washington State too. That would be the niece Mrs C.B. Ruchty, Grandview, mentioned in Harvey's obit.

I do not have access to any USA records and it would be great if someone could let me have more information on their life in the USA, I do believe they had a daughter, called Harriett and this may well be the lady my mum met on her travels.


Here's a nice article about Harvey's travels after he retired. Does his sister's name " Mrs Drage " ring a bell?

It turns out that Ellen's Uncle, Harvey Martin was already in the USA when she moved there. I cant find a passenger record for him but he was born in Braughing, Herts in 1867 and died in Washington State in 1937. He married an English girl, Agnes Sager in 1892 in Thurston. I do not have access to any USA records and it would be great if someone could let me have more information on their life in the USA,


Censuses state Harvey immigrated 1888/1889 and was naturalized in 1890. His wife Agnes immigrated in 1890.

The above was the daughter of Alfred Lionel Ramon Adams 1898-1979 and Minnie Ada Cummins 1895-1975. The problem is that there are several ladies with this name and one according to an Anc tree suggests that she married Vincent Clyde Stauffer 18 Jun 1971 but I am unsure-what do you think?
Cr

Minnie's obit verifies who her daughter married.
