    The Porter genealogy reports her full name as Ruby May Harman.  A descendant of John has written to indicate that May is not the correct middle name, but has not supplied the correct name.  The place of death reported by this genealogy differs from that reported by the Texas Death Index.  Probably Perrin, Jack County, Texas, was the residence at time of death, but death may have occurred in a hospital or residence of a family member in Tarrant County (Ft Worth).

    --  Ancestry Trees, Porter and Related,

    I found another tree which provides extensive details on this family, apparently from family sources, since little documentation is provided.  This genealogy, like the Porter one, reports the death of Ruby as occurring in Jack County, the residence of the family.
