On the back of the old photo, "To
Bertha Jones, from Ruth Hobson and Ralph Bartlett."
In this picture, Ralph accepts a rose from
his Aunt Ruth. This extended family of Elizabeth Ann Brewer Collins loved
roses. Elizabeth's own stationery was always marked with a red rose.
Sometimes, a feeling of love comes through in a picture without the reason
being known by the casual observer. In all the pictures of this family one
can see the protective air of the family toward this child. There is the
reality of the thing ever present and visible and it humbles a family. As
it humbles, it too strengthens. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles,
grandparents, all, in turn reach out, giving of themselves with love and
emotional support. Ralph had a speech and hearing disability.
Ruth married Lovel Buckner. He was born
December 8, 1897, died, October 17, 1985.
This fresh clean sharp cotton frock,
trimmed in rick rack speaks of her personality. This whole family worked
hard, diligently striving for cleanliness, honesty, and faith. In the
early days of Oklahoma hard times and the drought brought about rough
economic times. Also a rush of fast living oil field workers made life
more complicated. Ruth's mother was Aletha (Leeth) Artemis Collins Hohson
(Mrs. Nathaniel Hobson). Leeth was a sister to Bellzona. Ruth's own
sister, mother of this child in the picture, Ralph, was Dewey Evans
Hobson, Mrs. James (Jim) Bartlett. Dewey was born June 7, 1898, died
October 30, 1932. Her husband, James Enis Bartlett was born September 19,
1893, died December 27, 1965.
Ralph, a baby in this picture, as a man was
a clean, personable, pleasant, good citizen. He was hard working and
Ruth Buckner and Jewel Wagner of Fairfax,
Oklahoma shared the above information.
