By any chance are you related to Gilbert and Jessie Inez Rugh Jones? If So, Gilbert was my first cousin.

Hilda Ruch (#53621944)
I'll have to follow up on the birth location. I had only inquired about the death date discrepancy and not anything else. I didn't want to inundate my contact with too many questions just yet. She has given me the OK to pester her with more questions, so I'll definitely see what other information she can provide.

It's up to you on the note regarding the death certificate. If it were me, I'd probably put some sort of note indicating that there is a discrepancy between the stone and the certificate, and that cause of death is suspect as well...but I'll let that decision up to you!

Thanks for your help!!

Hilda Ruch (#53621944)
Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you on this. I have been corresponding with Hilda's only living sibling. While she was unable to provide me any documentation, this is part of what she related me:

"... her birthday is Oct 29th. Believe me, my mom (Mabel) would have picked up that stone and carried it back personally if the data had been wrong."

She also provides an account of Hilda's sickness that correlates with the death certificate, but also contradicts it as well. If you're interested in that info, please let me know.

RE: Maria (Wert) Ringer
I know I have Stephen and Maria but they were born in 1810's. You were saying that they were born in 1830's. That's what I meant

I think you have the wrong Stephen Ringer. I don't have any Stephen for that time period.

Unfortunately, at this point in time, I do not have any other sources that will help us to verify which date is correct. I do have a lead that might be able to determine the correct date for us...I'll let you know what I manage to find out.

At this point, would you want to put a note on Hilda's memorial that acknowledges that there is a discrepancy between the date on the stone and the date on the certificate?

Not mine, but Kathi Lynn King's. I just noticed what seemed to be a duplicate. Thanks for getting back.
