Update 2:

@wendyc thanks for the clarification, what I'm trying to find out is what country or descendant his mother came from. I know that jacks fathers parents came from norway. where did ruths parents and grandparents come from?

Update 3:

@wendyc another clarification, is ruths maiden name beatty or gilbert? I'm confused, I know that charles was married twice and that his first wife wasn't jacks mother

    Ruth Beatty is the mother of Jack... did you not read her obituary

    with Jack's date of birth in the 1940s, looks that Charles married Ruth after the 1940 census.

    Your lineage would be through Jack's mother, not charles first wife.

    Charles mother = Boletta, per 1920 census...

    it seems possible father died in North Dakota??/


    Ruth was actually a Gilbert...and here is the marriage record for brother Louis...

    parents were Louis Gilbert and Cora Wilcox

    have not found them yet in census
