Ruby Lee Gartman was the oldest daughter of Miles Tunney Gartman and Viola Boothe Gartman. She was one of nine children.
She married John T Frost in 1943. I believe he was a pilot in the military and died in a plane crash in 1962. She did not have any children. She later married Allen Thurman Chancellor.

She told the story once that when she was a teenager, her and a group of other girls went to a carnival and went to see a fortune teller, "just for fun". I think she said the lady read her palm. Anyway, the fortune teller told her that she would be married twice. Ruby stated that she did not believe in divorce and the woman replied that she wouldn't divorce but that it would be "an act of God". She then told her that she would not have any kids of her own but would marry a man with three kids.
Aunt Ruby did not take any of it seriously but sure enough everything came to pass just as the fortune teller had foretold. She did marry twice, the first husband died, and the second had three kids.Ruby also never had any kids of her own.

She lived in a house on Alabama Street, almost my whole life until shortly before her death, when she had moved in with her brother Joe at their old "homeplace" on Odom Road where they all were born.
She died of a heart attack in her sleep.
