Ruby McMenus Hamilton and Son James, 1921

scan0190Ruby McMenus was the daughter of my great uncle, Jode McMenus, and she married Charles Hamilton when she was 16 years old.  Here she is at the age of 17 with her first child, James.  The baby was 4 months and 10 days old when the photo was taken on November 26, 1921.  Sadly, baby James died in some sort of accident when he was only four years old.  The Hamiltons had two other children, Kathryn and Kenneth.


  1. Charles Hamilton was a first cousin to my grandmother, Nellie Stone Allen
