  • Notes 
    • The 1920 census lists her father "Mathew" as a 33-yr old man, living with his wife Verna, 29, and Illinois-born daughters Gladys, 10; Hazel, 8; Marion, 7; Alice, 5; and Ruth, 3. 1920 U.S. Census, Kendall Twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 625, Roll 380, stamped p. 43).

      By the time of the 1930 census Ruth, 13, was no longer living in the Campbell family home. According to the census she was living as an "adopted daughter" in the home of Albert E Ward, 46, and his wife Anne L, 41, and their 3 daughters, Dorothy M, 21, Virginia L, 17, and Alberta E, 15. Albert Ward was the "proprietor" of a furniture store. 1930 U.S. Census, Aurora, Kane Cnty, IL (T 626, Roll 523, stamped p. 104).
    • In 1940 the census shows her parents, "Mat Campbell," 54, and Verna, 49, living with three daughters: Hazel, 29, Ruth, 24, and Marian, 27. Matthew was a farmer; Hazel and Ruth were school teachers; Marian apparently was not employed. 1940 U.S. Census, Sugar Grove, Kane Cnty, IL (T 627, Roll 822, stamped p. 1815 B).
    • According to her mother's obituary in May 1964, "Mrs. Neil (Ruth) Bodin" of Palos Park, IL, was still living.
