On October 10, 1897, Samuel E. and Rebecca Ruth were married.
Samuel had a sixth grade education and Rebecca had a fifth grade education. We know this thanks to the 1940 Census. I just love the census records! Although their questions were determined for other purposes, they sure do help us get to know a little about the lives of our forefathers.
Samuel and Rebecca had four children–Robert Elwood, Mildred (Myrtle) R., Pearl I., and Jack. There’s a 19 year gap between Robert and Jack. Jack was born 11 years after Pearl.
