Marriages and migrations
Ruth's first husband died in 1925 in Seattle, after which she married his older brother and they moved to Texas (the same year?) and she had one more child. At the 1930 census they were in El Paso, Texas.
By 1935 the family had moved to Piedmont, Alameda County, California.
By the 1940 census most of the family were still at Piedmont but the two older sons had flown the nest (Hugh Jr in Honolulu unmarried, Ethan in California married) and been replaced by the orphaned 20-year-old twin daughters of their aunt Ethelwyn Brydon (1882-1935), whose husband had died in 1932.
