Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

Finished up with Dovie’s 2nd husband Ollie Stanley. Found a new source online, Panther’s Rest: History of the Fort Worth Police Department 1873 – 21st Century listing Ollie as a patrolman in 1913.

Pretty much. All of her info in my RootsMagic database is current and her images are uploaded to my ZenPhoto gallery.
