    Ruby's birth certificate does not state the place of birth, other thanto identify the county as Parker.

    "ADVANCE, TEXAS. Advance is a dispersed rural community near Farm Road1885 sixteen miles northwest of Weatherford in northwest ParkerCounty. In 1890 B. B. Barton, of Denton County, moved to Adell inParker County. Four years later he opened a general store four milesnorthwest of Adell and encouraged Adell residents to move to his newcommunity, which he named Advance. Postal service began in 1894. Acotton gin was erected, and by the late 1890s the new community hadtwenty residents. Postal service was discontinued in 1906."

    "Peaster is an unincorporated community in Parker County, Texas,United States, nine miles (14 km) northwest of Weatherford.Settlement began in the 1870s when Georgia native H.H. Peaster bought160 acres (0.65 km2) of land and built a house. The community thatdeveloped near the site of his home was originally called Freemont; in1885 the name was changed to Peasterville. Throughout the 20thcentury, Peaster has served area farmers as a school and churchcommunity. During the mid-1920s the town's population grew toapproximately 300, but this was soon followed by a steep decline afterthe Great Depression. From 1975 to 1990, Peaster had around 80residents. Current estimates put the population at approximately 100."

    I found one of our cousin famliy researchers on Martin-Jackson-Greenhad left a note on Ruby's Find a Grave memorial.

    "She is half sister to my grandfather LeeLoo Alfred Martin, and thedaughter of James Alfred Martin.  If you are related to her I wouldlove to hear from you. Thanks,  Linda Martinbussell,lmhankssbcglobal.net"

    In 1920, Ruby was enumerated with her mother and another child,identified as Leon Martin, Female age 7.  The latter would be Pearl'sson Leon Parsons from her first marriage.  They are in the householdof Pearl's unmarried brother Jim Walker.  And next door on Ft WorthStreet is their parents with other siblings.

    Ruby's death certificate reports her birth a year later than the birthrecord shows.  Notice also that she hs a middle name, even though herbirth certificate reports only the name Ruby Martin.
