M. J. Ruddy - Undertaker and Embalmer!

This was an interesting find. M. J. Ruddy is one of the local undertakers and also the secretary of the Eastside Cemetery Association.

Eastside Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in the city of Hutchinson, KS. The original cemetery was located in the area of 17th and Monroe, which is a residential area today. Records are sketchy but some graves were moved to Eastside. I would guess many were left behind.

    Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
