    Rube is obviously short for Reuben.  His grandson Bill Walker refersto the naem with this traditional spelling.

    "My great grandfather was William Walker Terry, I´m named after him.... William Terry moved with the Wells family from Texas to DouglasAZ. ... There is a family grave yard outside of Douglas.  WilliamTerry Sr [he means the original William Walker Terry, son of NancyConnie and Lewis Terry] and my grandfather Reuben are both buriedthere."
    --  William W Terry, Jr, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 13 June 2013

    However, his name on the gravestone is spelled Rubuin, as one of th1910 enumerations below.

    Reuben and the whole family were enumerated twice in 1910.  Besidesthe record from Cochise County in the southeast corner of the state,bordering Mexico and New Mexico, Ida and her children were alsoenumerated in the Gila County near the center of the state.  All thechildren and their ages match.  In the Gila County report Ida is theHead of the home, with no husband reported.  But she is reported asmarried for 13 years, not divorced as in the Cochise County report.

    Both enumerations took place on the same day.  This must mean some ofthe children, probably the older ones, were in one location, and Idawas in the other with the younger children.
