Dear Ms. Hickman: Ruth RIDEOUT was m. to Job HALL on 2 Jan 1828 in Clermont Co., OH.
In the 1850 Federal census of Wayne Township, Clermont County, OH, Job HALL lives with wife Ruth and two children: Stephen, 16, b. OH, and Roseanne, 14, b. OH. So Roseanne was his daughter, not his wife. As Stephen was b. abt 1836, it seems unlikely that he is the father of a living cousin (although I suppose not entirely impossible...)
Job and Ruth HALL are enumerated in South East Township, Orange County, IN, on the 1860 Federal census, and in Green Township, Madison County, IN, on the 1870 Federal census. No children are living with them in 1860 or 1870.
From census, Job was b. abt 1793, ME; Ruth's age varies more in census (b. abt 1796/7/8). I have not yet found information later than 1870.
Ruth is the daughter of John RIDEOUT, b. 1759, and Elizabeth GETCHELL, b. abt 1764, both in Brunswick, Cumberland, ME. John is the s/o Benjamin, who is the s/o Nicholas, who is the s/o Abraham, b. abt 1685, ENG, emigrated to Falmouth, ME, the subject of much discussion on this forum and elsewhere.
Ruth was the sister of my g-g-g grandfather, Dr. Isaac Chase RIDOUT. I have studied the family for quite some time. I would very much appreciate a gedcom, text report, or any other information you can provide, about the descendancy of this branch of the RIDEOUTs. Please email me.
