My wife relates to Dr. Kenzie Routh, who is at least one of the Rouths who came to Texas.
She has Benjamin Murrell Routh (named for his maternal grandfather) and Pleasant Mills Routh as siblings of Kenzie Routhand and has a total of seven children born to Joseph and Elizabeth Routh.
Do you have anything on the Revolutionary War service of Joseph Routh?
I would be interested in any of the Routh stories you mention as well or other information about the Rouths if you would email them to me.
