The Coffeyville Daily Journal, Wednesday Evening, November 24, 1920
“Miss Ruth Fuller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Fuller of Coffeyville, formerly living north of Chetopa where the bride was at times our Pleasant Valley correspondent, was united in marriage to Mr. Charles Pyatt, formerly one of the well and favorably known young men of this community. While we have no particulars, we understand the groom has been employed in Texas and that they will make their home there. The bride is a very attractive young woman, a graduate of our city schools, and popular with all. The groom is a young man of good character and habits. The Clipper, with their hosts of friends, joins in extending felicitations.”
This is a transcript of the wedding announcement for my paternal grandparents. Ruth Frankie Fuller was born in 1900 in Omaha, Nebraska. She moved to Labette County, Kansas somewhere between 1910 and 1915. Charles Alfred Pyatt was born in 1896 in Springfield, Missouri. He moved to Labette County, Kansas prior to 1910. They were married in Coffeyville and as the announcement states, they moved to Texas. Unfortunately the marriage did not last. They had one son (my father) and were divorced in 1935.
This is one of the few pictures of my grandparents together. Sadly, my grandmother destroyed most of the pictures of the two of them together after the divorce.
