He was born John Barton Gruelle in Arcola, Illinois. His father Richard Gruelle was an artist affiliated with Hoosier Group of Indiana artists. His first well known cartooning work was “Mr. Twee Deedle” which Gruelle created after he beat out 1,500 entrants to win a cartooning contest sponsored in 1911 by The “Mr. Twee Deedle” was in print from 1911 to 1914.
Gruelle gave his daughter Marcella a dusty, faceless rag doll which she found in the attic. He drew a face on the doll and named her Raggedy Ann. Marcella played with the doll so much, Gruelle figured other children would like the doll too. Gruelle's Raggedy Ann doll U.S. Patent D47,789 was dated September 7, 1915. In 1918, the PF Volland Company published “RaggedyAnn Stories”. Gruelle then created a series of popular Raggedy Ann books and dolls. These became Volland's major source of revenue.

Gruelle lived in the Silvermine section of New Canaan, Connecticut, where the dolls were first mass produced, and later moved his home and company to neighboring Wilton, Connecticut. Gruelle spent a year in Ashland, Oregon from 1923-1924.[2] He had a long-standing heart condition, and died in Miami Beach, Florida on January 8, 1938, of a heart attack. —Source Wikipedia
