Other facts


Married Ceade C BULLA


  • "Ruby Lakin: This is a picture of my grandmother, I have another one of 2 sons she had with Ben.  Ben left her (assume divorce) and took the boys.  She later remarried and had 4 daughters. If anyone has any more pictures of her I would appreciate it very much,"
    --  Phyllis Cullum, Comment on photo,

    I notice that in the 1920 census only one older child of that first marriage is in Ben's household.  In 1920 Clyde is 8 years old.  But in the genealogy where I first found the photo mentioned above, Clyde is reported born in 1917.  But in July 1917, Ben was in Liberty County, Texas, and reported himself as Single, not married or divorced.  In his 1917 Draft Registration he reported that his mother and one child wre dependent on him.

    By the time of the 1920 census, however, he has his 8-year old son Clyde in his household, and this would be the son of Ruby.  But the photo, however, shows a much older child, at least 3 years old, but maybe 4.  So that photo was taken likely in about 1915.  And where is the second child in 1920?
