This photo is one of numerous where Wilton Hoyt stands or sits close to Ruth Boomer. It "appears" that they may have been sweethearts, although she eventually left the Unity and ended up marrying a Philadelphia architect with the last name of "Thomas". There are, however, numerous photographs that suggest a relationship, or at least a "crush" between Ruth Boomer and Wilton Hoyt. This is suggested by the many photos that show them sitting side by side, either alone or with others. She later had a son named Benjamin Brook. There are some photos of some of her generation of Koreshans visiting in Philadelphia. Also, there is at least one photo of her son in the collection. According to "Folks we Knew..." Wilton Hoyt worked in the Miami fire department and later returned to his family "...in the north". Accession number 1991.10.02
