Ruth Paddock's affidavit was taken in Sharon, CT. Litchfield County, on August 24, 1833. She testifies that she is 74 years old at that time. I am in the process of transcribing parts of the pension application file, and I will post it on my website in the next few weeks.
I know the date of her marriage, but I can't find much else about her...I would like some proof that this Ruth Paddock, sister of William Abel, was absolutely Ruth Randall Abel Paddock. Then I would be satisfied that my William Abel is actually William Roberts Abel. Please let me know if you find anything.
