Actually her name was Ruth Catherine Melroy and she went by Ruth. I have no knowledge about her at all except that she was in California in 1924 and still in 1941. She may have been in Washington State but I doubt it. My grandfather was living in Washington but then he moved to California so she was probably just in California. That may not be where she was born though. I am sure she probably would have married later and if so I do not know her married name. But surely her relatives would have known that she had a son by another man (husband or not) named Walter David Adams. I would be so greatful if you are able to find out anything.
