My Dad, Slim, ran a ranch south of Casa Grande AZ from the mid 1940s to the early 1950s and his wife at that time was Ruth. I never knew her other surname and think she may have originally been from Indiana or somewhere in that area. I suspect she was born around 1915/20. They married just before round-up and she didn't know how to cook. Dad had to teach her how to cook on a campfire, then after round-up and they came back to ranch headquarters, he had to teach her how to cook on a stove. I heard she went to California after their divorce, but that isn't confirmed. I suspect she is no longer living but would like to know what happened to her.

Since the above post it has become unclear if they were married, but they were together from about 1945 to about 1950. If they were married it is unclear which state they were married in.

It would help to know your dad's given name and birthdate.

Of course! Sor' 'bout dat Lois Milton (Slim) Gatliff b. 31 October 1909 AR. Ruth may have gone to CA when they split about 1950. I have nothing solid to work with.
