GARDINER, Edward Moore (b. 1892 TX)
Posted by: Liz Freeman (ID *****2827) Date: January 27, 2009 at 17:14:53
  of 1489

Searching for information on Edward moore Gardiner (b.6-16-1892 in TX - probabaly Dallas area).

Ed was the son of Clifford A. Gardiner. Clifford operated a theater in the Dallas area in the early 1900s where Ed worked.

Ed married a young vaudeville performer (Ruby Darby) circa 1915. They subsequently divorced (or so the story goes) circa 1918.

Ruby Darby went on to become a well know blues singer/vaudeville prformer in TX, OK, MO, KS, CA and other places. Over the years they kept in touch by letter.

Ed eventually remarried (believe her name was Eva) and had at least one son. Supposedly Ed and Eva returned to TX after several years on the road in vaudeville where Ed was supposedly killed when a fireworks plant which his family owned burned.

Am enedeavoring to determine when/where Ed died and where he may be buried.

Any information appreciated.
