Are you familiar with Find a Grave? Ruth's grandmother was the sister of my great grandmother. I have spent a lot of time getting their information and what photos I could find onto Find a Grave and want to 'link' the children to parents, etc. and fill in a couple missing blanks of information.
Tell whoever this is to please take a look at Find a Grave memorials #28790968 Oliver Billingsley and #29790970 Margaret Hessel Billingsley. (This being the Billingsley which comprises Ruth's middle name, Ruth Billingsley Bates). I even have one old photo of Ethel Lillian Billingsley, Ruth's mom on there when she came to the funeral of my great grandmother. Again, my email is on that website and you can contact me directly.
