Looking for information on Ruby Frances Summers I have several last names for her West, Kent, Womack. She was born 28 MARCH 1917 in Queen City S, Missouri. to William G. Summers and Eva Sarah Durham (Summers).
William and Eva passed away in Feb. 1920 during the flu epidemic. The children William, Elsie, and Ruby were split up, William went to live with Rebecca and William Calhoun (His aunt and uncle) and Elsie possibly went to live with other family members. But I can't seem to find who they went to live with. I have hear rumor that Ruby was adopted but no able to verify. My grandfather was reunited with her before she passed away in 1996. If anyone has information I would be thrilled to know I have been looking for this information for nearly 20 years.
Thank you
