Happy Birthday, Hays Ruddell

We believe Mr. Ruddell’s birth date was February 25, 1868. Here’s hoping we are all able to perform a Highland Fling on our birthdays. From the March 3, 1921 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

A few neighbors gathered at the home of Hays Ruddell Friday evening, to remind him of his birthday. To prove that he wasn’t getting old, he did the “Highland Fling” for us. Games and music were enjoyed, and refreshments were served, after which the guests departed, wishing him many more happy birthdays.
