I am searching for information on the Clayton Irick & Ruth Awe families. They are my father-in-law's parents and he knows nothing of their background. I know they were farmers in Newton and have been able to find most of Ruth's family, but very little information on her specifically.
Clayton Irick is a much different story. He was born around 1913. In 1920, he was listed as living with his paternal grandfather, Albert Dallman (father listed as Albert's son, Walter). In 1930, he was living with AB & Emma (Dallman) Cook and listed as a step-son. Walter was married and living with new family. I can find NO information about Clayton's mother, which I am assuming is where the Irick surname stems from.
If you can offer any assistance, it would be much appreciated.
