Hi, folks.I just received a copy of a manuscript from the Neosho-Newton Public Library in Missouri of wonderful information submitted by a descendant of Seth RUARK 1777-1831, son of John, son of Ezekiel RUARK of Worcester Co. MD.It primarily concerns William b. 1802, who married first Priscilla JOHNSON, dtr. of Lazarus, second Margaret WILLIAMS, both of Maryland.
Children for William mentioned are Jesse, Henry, Joshua b. 1832, Ozias b. 1835, Frank b. 1847 (Francis Marion), Wayland, Littleton, Elmer Grant, Elizabeth, Margaret b. 1846, and Mary.From 1850 census of Lawrence Co., MO, information posted elsewhere, I see William also had a daughter Sarah J. born 1829, Martha b. 1839, Cynthia b. 1842, Wm. J. b. 1845, in addition to the above.If anyone is interested in particulars, please let me know.Gene in Gotha
