I do not have the name of the parents of Ruth Allen that married Stephen Wilcox. In "Your Ancestors, A National Magazine of Genealogy and Family History", by Harry Ferris Johnston, Genealogist, Editor and Publisher, of Buffalo, N.Y., he mentions the will of Stephen Wilcox b. Dartmouth 5-18-1747, m. Ruth Allen 2-1782. Will dated 12-8-1817. Res. Easton, Washington Co. N.Y. The will mentions his brother Micajah - (and others). He does not mention where the will was located. If this information is correct, Ruth Allen, Wilcox, would not have been a widow until, or after 1817.
