On her death certificate her mother's maiden name is written as "Church" not "Crick". Her father's birthplace is listed as Pennsylvania and her mother's as England. Floyd Lane said his mother's family, while located in the Town of Carroll near Frewsburg, New York, did spend some time near Shinglehouse, Pennsylvania which may be why Oliver's birthplace is listed as "Penna" instead of Ellery, New York on Ruth's death certificate.
