My great, great grandfather, Hiram Clinton Marcy (1819-1887) was married to Cenith Hurlbut (1823-1850)on 14 Oct 1839 in Harmony. Also his father Clinton Marcy (1791-1859)married 2nd wife Charlotte Hurlbut (1805-1874) on 20 Jan 1833 in Harmony. We don't know if they were related. Charlotte was born in CT. We have no other info on either of them.
Is it possible that there is a connection with your Ruth?
