A family member of the Eckman family has contacted me with some of his research. William Bellamy was first married to Evelyn Eleanor Eckman in April 1905; it is conceivable that he would be Ruby's father. However, a second marriage in Jan 1912 to a Forrest Mondell Hazlet could be the father of Ruby's sister Eleanor Fayette, who was born in July, 1925. It looks like the name Hazlet is attached to both girls, rather than Bellamy or Congleton. More research is needed.
Thanks Herb, for the information!
