Re: Mitchell & Marshall family, SC, NC, LA, TX

As far as I know, there's no Ruby Marshall in any of the families I'm researching. I did find a Ruby Marshall living in San Antonio, TX. She's counted in the census with her parents, Joseph and Frances Scruggs, 1910-1930. Joseph could be a son of Solomon and Fanny Scruggs, counted in 1880 census in Gonzales, TX. If this is not your Ruby, you might try a first name only search for all African-American (black, mulatto, etc.) females named Ruby who were born in Louisiana circa 1908.
