*Probably meant to be Lombardo. Transcribed to the best of my ability.

His death certificate has the 8th and the birth record has the 28th as birth day. His headstone has 1927 as his death year and his DC has 1926 but most of the other years on the DC has 1927. His obit is also from 1927.

His former wife's obit states: "She was the mother of nine children, by a former marriage. eight of these still survive,..."
Only 7 are listed:
"Of the children, Virgil and Bifford Amyx and Mrs.Maggie Mattox, live in California: Dean at Chama, N.M.; Claude [Albert] and Ruby at Pagosa Springs, and Mrs. Chas. Port at Windsor, Missouri."
Mark is the one that is not listed in the obit.

According to most of the family trees I found there was also a baby girl name Ruby Lee Velmar Amyx with the dates Feb. 16, 1895-July 28, 1896 Beamont, Metcalfe, KY.

My two cents :) regarding Lizzie B./Ruth/Batie R.:
1900 census has Melissa having 7 of 8 children living. Lizzie B. b. Jul 1883. Ruth was born July 26, 1884 according to her DC. On the 1910 census she is listed as Batie R. Could Lizzie and Ruth and Batie be the same person? I saw a family tree that has Elizabeth Boatwright Amyx with the birth date July 26, 1884. So I think this is the same person. *

The only part of the family I can locate in the 1910 census is:

1910 United States Federal Census
Name: Batie R Hayes
Age in 1910: 25
Birth Year: 1885
Birthplace: Kentucky
Home in 1910: Central Pagosa, Archuleta, Colorado
Race: White
Gender: Female
Relation to Head of House: Head
Marital Status: Married
Father's Birthplace: Kentucky
Mother's Birthplace: Kentucky
Household Members: Name Age
Batie R Hayes 25
Lavina Johnson 6
Pearl Johnson 3
John L Hayes 9/12
Dean Amyx 21
Maggie Amyx 13

*Batie R. has to be Ruth because the out of the 3 children listed the 2 youngest ones are listed with her in the 1920 census all with the last name Port with her husband in Henry County, MO.
