Surnames: McLeod, VanRuth
I am hoping someone can help me find the names of the parents for Earl Harold McLeod. He was married in Eau Claire, WI on 5-15-1937 to maybe Mable M. Unknown. He was born Harold VanRuth in Wisconsin about 1907. He later took the maiden name of his mother, McLeod, as his last name. I'm hoping to find his mother's first name and want to verify that Leo VanRuth was his father. Thank you so much for any help with this.
Earl H. McLeod is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Eau Claire, WI.

Leo Van Ruth died in Calaveras County, California on March 20, 1949. You can write to the County archives there and see if you they can look for an obit, which should hopefully confirm he is the father of Earl Harold.
