Ruth was my aunt and I did know Harold. I will be happy to share what I know. I am always interested in collecting info from the different trees best way to get the most accurate from those who know the line.
My cousin Jody who is Harold half sister may be of help also to fill in the gaps.
My grandmother daughter of Letha whose name was also Letha told me the story that after her dad died in 1929 that Elmer was don't remember how it all went but he was somehow with the family as a helper or something. Didn't look proper for him to be traveling with the 2 women. He offered to marry Ruth. Told her he would not pressure her until she was ready.
Harold did die in South Carolina.
I will have to look up and see what I have and prepare it for you may not be able to get to it this week.
Be happy to hear from you again.
