    1. [FORD] DANIELS - YOKLEY - FORD Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ruth DANIELS YOKLEY which was taken about 1908. Ruth appears to be in her teens or 20's at the time the photograph was taken. She is noted as the only daughter of Billie TANNER who was a sister to W. L. TANNER (Dad to the person who wrote the note on the back of the photograph). Cousins to Ruth are noted as Bud and Millie TANNER. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Ruth and her family: Ruth Louise DANIELS was b. 26 Mar 1888 in Colorado and married Joseph Day "Joe" YOKLEY (1889-1965) on 18 Apr 1910 in Grayson Co. TX and the couple moved to Rhome, TX shortly thereafter. Ruth and Joe had four children including John J. "Jack" YOKLEY (living in Dimmitt, TX at the time of his Mother's passing), and 3 daughters including Irene W. YOKLEY STANDLEY or STANLEY (1910-1981 who was living in Denver, CO when her Mother passed); Ruth Josephine "Jo" F. YOKLEY HOUSER (b. 01 Oct 1912 in Tarrant Co. TX and living in El Paso, TX when her Mother died); and Lois Mary or Mary Lois YOKLEY FORD (b. 21 Dec 1915 in Amarillo, TX and living in Dallas, TX when her Mother died).Ruth died on 13 Jan 1964 in Dallas, TX and is buried in the Aurora Cemetery in Aurora, TX. I believe that her Mother was Mary A. TANNER b. 1863 in Iowa to parents Arabell A. LOWE (b. 30 Aug 1830 in Kentucky) and Benjamin R. TANNER (b. 1826 in Virginia). Her brother was William L. TANNER b. 1867 in Iowa. The family was living in Phillipsburg, KS in 1880. Census records provide the following information: 1900 census of Justice, TX: Benjamin R.
