Wow!! What a story!
I talked to my sister and neither of us remember anything like what you have described! Our info is very little on her as we probably saw her a total of 3-4 times. However, I believe my great Aunt Ruth is your Ruth!! My grandfather was one Raymond Hess who later married Eleanor Krautwater, but I do not know the year. I believe that I do remember that Ruth's husband was Frank. (However, I know not of any first husband stories!) I also have her address in Springfield if that helps.
Please send me your address and contact information. I have a couple of pictures I am going to copy and send to you. My email is email@example.com . I am hoping the pictures will confirm her status in your family for you. I gather that all of this is public, so I would rather talk about this more privately on email. Please know that I have looked at all of your postings on the genealogy forum I could find and that you have given my sister, I and our children the gift of knowing who our great grandparents were and perhaps more of where that side of our family came from---if I am understanding the lineage correctly! So little is known to my sister and I about our mom's side. She never talked much of it. (Will tell you that in email)
Anyway, I will get those pictures off to you as soon as I hear from you!
Thanks so very much for contacting me!! Can't wait to hear from you!
