Ruth Cleveland
Birth: Oct. 3, 1891
Death: Jan. 7, 1904

American Folk Figure. The daughter and first child of President Grover Cleveland and First Lady Frances Cleveland, she died at the age of 12 from a bout of diphtheria. A myth arose that the candy bar "Baby Ruth" was named after her (partially perpetuated by the creators, the Curtis Candy Company). However, that myth has subsequently been debunked.

I'm not sure if you really was named after the candy bar Babe Ruth, but God bless your soul and rest in peace.
