Harry Byron Tate
Ruth Byler was two years old on her first census record, April 23, 1910 ~ Grant Township, Lincoln County, Kansas. Her parents, Monroe Lee and Mary A. Byler, and her siblings, Gertrude, May, Mary, and James were living with her maternal grandparents, Elija and Sarah Coffman.
Harry and Ruth first appeared as husband and wife on the 1930 census ~ Colby City, Colby Township, Thomas County, Kansas. Living in the household with them are their first two children, Edwin and Donald. Harry and Ruth were paying $6 rent per month. Harry's occupation was a 'Truckster', drayline. Ruth was keeping house.
Just over a decade later, Harry was working as a Crew Chief in Production at a tool and manufacturing company in Wichita, Kansas. In a citation from that company, it is noted that he was outstanding in ability, aptitude, and production. His character was very good, as was his co-operativeness, and integrity.
By this time, all of their children had been born, all born in Kansas. Their first child was born in Thomas County, the second child was born in Saline County. The next son and three daughters were born in Russell County. The fourth daughter, and seventh child, was born in Sedgwick County.
