Billy Ruge
born: August 1866
New York City, New York,
United States of America
died: 19 October 1955
New York,
United States of America

(age 89)
American actor and comedian who teamed with Babe Hardy for the Plump & Runt series after a successful stint playing with him in the Pokes & Jabbs comedies with Bobby Burns.

† One source gives a (more believable) birth year of 1885, though I have been persuaded to use the 1866 year as according to his Billboard obituary, which says he was 89 at the time of his death, and the 1900 Census, which gives a possibly "shaved" birth year of 1870.
