The information on Ruth Mooney is from a family bible, and is considered a valid source:

Ohio.Joseph was born19 Oct. 1768 (place undetermined).Rebecca was born 30 May 1769 probably in New Jersey.
Ruth's brothers and sisters were:
Rebecca Mooney b. 31 July, 1786; John F. Mooney b. 26 September, 1788; Samuel Mooney b. 10 November, 1790; Priscilla Mooney b. 24 October, 1792; Nathan Mooney b. 6 January, 1799; Elizabeth Mooney b. 29 July 1799, Lewis Mooney b. 2 February, 1801 and thoams Mooney b. abt. 1807.
I can send you a Family Tree Maker report involving at least 5 generations of Mooneys if you are interested.Some lines have been developed more fully than others.
For several years we have been trying to find the parents of Joseph Mooney, without success.There are some strong clues, but not enough evidence to consider it fully "proven."
