    Notes 
    • Ruben left for Calf. After a few years never heard from him again. Info from Mabel (Mercer) Wirth.
      Ruby went to the oilfields -- in those days, Oklahoma. Then to California. We don't know what happened to him. Charlie (his brother) kept up with him. As far as I know, he didn't marry. He died somewhere west, but I don' t know
      where. Info from Audrey Birk Benson King, phone conversation 18 Sep 1995 w/Mabel Mercer Wirth and Gary Petranek.

      Possible middle initial is "H"; came from a postcard of Ruby and Oscar that they sent to the Birk family (we have a picture of this)

      ~It is said that Ruby gambled and drank a little bit. He never kept his money. (Audrey Birk Benson King)
