Ruth Elliott was born in Texas in 1876 to James Dossey “Doss” Elliott and Mary Elizabeth Spears. The family lived in the town of Comanche until about 1887, when they moved to California. The 1900 census shows them living in Fresno.
From a scrapbook entry dated 1907
Mrs. J.N. [Joseph] Landrum of Pecos [can’t find them in Pecos on census] nee Miss Ruth Elliott is visiting Miss Stella Hamilton and other relatives and friends in Comanche. It has been 20 years since Mr. and Mrs. Elliott moved to California and this is Mrs. Landrum’s first visit since leaving.
It will be remembered by many early settlers that Mr. Elliott when in Comanche occupied the home now owned by R.H. Moore and the old Kirk place. These houses then were in the extreme eastern part of the city.
In another article dated August 1907
Mrs. Ruth Landrum left last week for her home in Pecos via Abilene and Buffalo Gap where she will stop to spend a few days with relatives.
I have used the only photo I can find. I assume it is of Doss Elliott and wife.
