I am researching the ancestry of Ruth Renate (Abrams) Fenton, whose mother (according to oral tradition) fled from somewhere in Prussia, possibly around the turn of the century. Ruth was born in 1918 and died in 1969, most likely in Philadelphia, Marion, MO. She was Mennonite so I am also approaching this research from the religious angle. She later married Lewis Fenton, who was born on 2 Mar 1911 and died in April 1986, also in MO. Any help or suggestions appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. I know Prussia encompassed territories of many modern countries and I am uncertain whether Ruth's mother was German, Dutch, Russian, or Volga German Mennonite.
