This is a photo of James Rollie Rudd added by Jennifer Ridner on August 16, 2020. James was killed in the Palawan Massacre: The Palawan massacre occurred on 14 December 1944, during World War II, near the city of Puerto Princesa in the Philippine province of Palawan. Allied soldiers, imprisoned near the city, were killed by Imperial Japanese soldiers.

In order to prevent the rescue of prisoners of war by the advancing Allies, on 14 December 1944, units of the Japanese Fourteenth Area Army (under the command of General Tomoyuki Yamashita) brought the POWs back to their own camp. An air raid warning was sounded to get the prisoners into the shelter trenches, the 150 prisoners of war at Puerto Princesa entered those trenches, and the Japanese soldiers set them on fire using barrels of gasoline.

Prisoners who tried to escape the flames were shot down by machine gun fire. Others attempted to escape by climbing over a cliff that ran along one side of the trenches, but were later hunted down and killed. Only 11 men escaped the slaughter; 139 were killed. Of the victims, 123 are buried in a mass grave at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, St Louis Missouri.

The incident sparked a series of POW rescue campaigns by the US, such as the raid at Cabanatuan on January 30, 1945, the raid at Santo Tomas Internment Camp on February 3, 1945, the raid of Bilibid Prison on February 4, 1945, and raid at Los Baños on February 23, 1945. It was testimony of survivor Pfc. Eugene Nielsen that convinced the US military to embark on a campaign to save the POWs in Philippines in 1945. In 2006, Nielsen was interviewed again by Geoffrey Panos on the behalf of the University of Utah.

Bones from the victims were discovered in early 1945. 16 Japanese soldiers were tried for the massacre, at Yokohama in August 1948. The Japanese personnel involved in the massacre were initially sentenced to death, but later, they were released in the general amnesty. (Wikipedia)

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces. For information on the folks who build and support the community see Daniel - Founder & Creator.
My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.

Clark Twelvetrees
Parents were Charles H Twelvetrees (1872-1948) a well-known artist and illustrator who was known for his likenesses of cherubic faced children, and Rose B Clark (1879-1946). Clark was probably born in Manhattan. He married Helen Marie Jurgens (1908-1958) also an actor on 28 Feb 1927 in Kings, New York, USA. but was divorced by 1931. Helen met Clark Twelvetrees shortly after she enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Helen said in an interview with Hollywood journalist Wood Soanes in 1932 that she spent three months at the Academy before joining Walker's Troupe where "It was in his company that I met Clark Twelvetrees and married him without consulting my family. We had known each other two entire weeks." Their marriage ended in little more than three years as Clark was known to be a heavy drinker, and according to Helen, physically abusive. An interesting article written in 1927 about Clark jumping out of a Manhattan window after evidently drinking is included down below on this page.

Rosalie E (Berglund) Little
She married my father, Robert L. Montgomery had me, soon divorced and later married Robert Singer. Had 2 boys from him. Micheal O. Singer and Brian K. Singer. Later divorced and remarried for a third time to Jack Wright having 2 more children Jackie L. Wright Jr. and Jodi L. Wright. Once more divorced and married Veryl Knowels. Again divorced and married John Little. After a few years divorced and lastly married Roy Wisterman. We lived in Washington State for many years. Then she moved to Anchorage Alaska, living there for some years with my little sister. After that they moved to Sacramento, California. She was a very outgoing and friendly person. Always had a good friend. She was talented in many areas, if she wanted to do something, she would. No one could tell her 'No' so to speak. She had a very hard life, not always happy. We changed religions like people change their shoes. She was a good mother, strict, loving, and at other times when we'd make her mad, we'd either get a spankin', or grounded. Even wash our mouths out with soap if we used bad language. She was quite knowledgeable on many subjects. Good with crafts, sewing, gardening, raising animals or stock. Growing a garden too. She loved horses! Although she would hand out empty promises, I still loved her. She was always making friends and trying to find a good deal, weather it be for money or anything. Always trying to find a get rich scheme. She never found it though. She was a good talker! By that I mean bullshitter. But then again...she was my Mom. Seriously, I could write a book of her life! I could go on forever... In the end, she died alone! No one by her side.

Diana Serra (Montgomery) Cary
Born as Peggy-Jean Montgomery, later known as Diana Serra Cary, but known in silent films as "Baby Peggy", she was the first big child screen star, earning over a million dollars a year in the early 1920s! From 1921 through 1924, she starred in over 150 short films and some popular features. Then her career (at the ripe old age of 6) crashed and she became a "has been." Her father, Jack Montgomery, moved his family from San Diego to Los Angeles so that he could be a horse-riding stuntman in movies. While visiting her father's set, she was "discovered" by a director (at 19 months old) and put in a short film with Brownie the Wonder Dog. Her father negotiated the same pay for her that he got as a stunt double - $7.50/day - and her career began. She became such a huge star that Gimbel's Dept Store created a doll of her and she appeared onstage with FDR in the 1924 Presidential convention. Unfortunately, while she earned over 1 million dollars a year (and, according to her, was worth $4 million by age 10), her parents didn't save any of her earnings. And, her father wasn't easy to get along with - so she was blackballed from movies. Then a relative absconded with all of her money, leaving the family destitute. She never really returned to Hollywood (silent film stars were considered "has beens") and she eventually became a writer in the 1970s, writing about the old days of Hollywood as well as an autobiography, Whatever Happened to Baby Peggy? . Diana, or Baby Peggy, died on the 24th of February, 2020, at the age of 101. One son and a granddaughter survive her. Her 2nd husband, to whom she was married for 48 years, died in 2003.
