Viola Ruth Smelser Stone
Birth: Nov. 27, 1889
Shawnee County
Kansas, USA
Death: Sep. 29, 1962
Harris County
Texas, USA

~~~~~~~MY GRANDMA~~~~~~~

Viola Ruth Smelser was born in Topeka, KS and her Dad was a carpenter. She was my grandma and my name is Catherine Ruth, Catherine from my paternal grandma, and Ruth after Viola Ruth. She met Alvin Charles Stone when he moved to Topeka, for his tinsmith training, and they married on June 22, 1910.

Grandpa & Grandma Stone had 10 children:
Burnice 1911-1999
Myrl 1912-1967
Alvin Clyde 1914-1940
Maxine 1917-1995
Glenn 1919-1970
Johnny Wayne 1921-1922
Teddy 1922-1984
Marvin 1924-1975
Ilene 1925-1997
Beverly 1930-last living child

The following count could be a little off, but according to my figures as of this date Grandpa and Grandma Stone have in their blood line, 10 children, 28 grandchildren, 55 great grandchildren, 57 great great grandchildren and 9 great great great grandchildren.

A special thanks to Cape Codder for sponsoring my Grandma's memorial page, such a sweet thing to do!
