Information from December 31, 2006 survey
coordinated by the Morning Glory Garden
Club of Moultrie, Georgia

Place of death comes from Georgia Death Certificate 043736. Georgia Deaths, 1919-98, states that residence at time of death was Clay County, Georgia, but many such records for Colquitt County residents who died in the late 1990's show (wrongly) that they lived in Clay. Social Security Death Index (256-32-6989; issued in Georgia before 1951) shows last benefit and last residence address as Colquitt County.

Ruth's parents may have been Samuel Baldwin Calhoun (1884-1950) and Bertie May (Eldridge) Calhoun (1881-1958). Her first husband may have been Jack Edward Chastain (1906-1953.)
