    Great work, Jenny! I too am Ruth Barrell, but officially Ruth Barrell Harvey since Barrell is my maiden name. The Ruth Barrell who married Will Gray is my great aunt. Her brother, Robert, is my grandfather. My father, Robert Webb Barrell, Jr. is Robert’s only child. His wife, Florence Cronce, died shortly after my dad’s first birthday. Since my grandfather never remarried, my dad grew up without any siblings but had very close ties with all his cousins back in the New Jersey/ New York area. I heard lots about Aunt Ruthy as a child but never met her since she died before my 2nd birthday.
    My sister, Emma Jean Lindberg, would love to see what you have compiled (she has our family collection of Barrell memorabilia, letters, photos, etc.) but has neither internet connection or computer. I will send this link on to her kids and hopefully she will get to see this one day.
    Looking forward to seeing and reading all your posts!

      Thank you! There are lots of pictures of Robert (Jr and Sr), and I really enjoyed reading some of Florence’s letters to Ruth. This has been such an interesting family to learn about. I am glad Ruth saved these letters- it gives us a wonderful insight into their lives. It is great connecting with you!
