Ruby Pauline Page was born 1884 to Elisha Loomer and Melvina Victoria (Smith) Page. She married Ernest Shaw, but he died in the early 1920's during a flu epidemic. She had one son from her first marriage, Charles Wellington (Willie)Shaw born March 21, 1919 died 1990. Willie made a number of trips to Alberta to visit the relatives. He was a likeable guy to be with. Ruby married Bedford Hartt September 22, 1926 and came to live on the old Hartt Homestead. At the end of her life she was sick with a lot of pain and couldn't walk. Bedford and one or two of his old aunties tried to help take care of Ruby. He had quite a job as the aunties were losing their memories and it meant he had more than one person to look out for. Ruby died January 1, 1963 in the Carleton Memorial Hospital in Woodstock NB. Children of Bedford and Ruby (Shaw) Hartt: Reginald 1927-1988 and Paul
