Summary:
Wilton Hoyt and Ruth Boomer are seated on a bench in front of a large coconut palm tree. It may be Estero Beach, but the exact location is unknown. This photo is one of numerous where Wilton Hoyt stands or sits close to Ruth Boomer. It appears that they may have been close, 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 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..."
