I am trying to determine the given name of the husband of Ruth Clayton, whose married name was Ruth Clayton Gutshall per her father's 1847 Allen County, Indiana will. Some of the Clayton clan moved to Allen County about 1845; others stayed in northwestern Ohio (Richland, Union, and Van Wert Counties primarily). Ruth was born between about 1810 and 1825 or so. She was alive in 1847, but there is no indication where she might have been living.
There was a George Gutshall, age 38, in the 1850 Census - Ohio - Richland County -Blooming Grove Township - page- Dwelling # 88, Household # 88. His wife's name was Elizabeth and she was 36.Children: Solomon (13); Rachel (12); and Danvers (4). Don't know if this is a possible connection, but there's a good chance he was the brother of Ruth's husband (or possibly Ruth's husband and a second wife).
