Oil Field Orphans

Ruby and Her Sisters

Ruby and Her Sisters

The Taylor sisters of Humble, Texas met tragedy early in life

Their mother died in childbirth leaving ten children in grief and strife

Their father rode a black horse around the oil field reading gauges

Recording the data from each well in production for very low wages

When their father killed himself at home he was discovered by his son

Who was only 5 years old. The deed could never be undone.

They had no preparation or reserves for this sudden change

Suicide had swept away home and security, memories forever stained
