Re: Elizabeth Ruth Slocum b abt 1770
Will try to help out, if I can. I just checked the Wiggens name and came up with two, one was in Iowa and the other was in New Brunswick. Her name was Margaret Sophia Wiggins, born Feb. 26, 1848, daughter of Stephen S. and Esther (Camp) Wiggins. Margaret married Edwin Ruthven Slocum who was born in New Brunswick but removed to Houlton Maine.
Naturally there is no connection to your Wiggins, unless these Wiggins were the parents of the gentlemen who married Elizabeth Ruth Slocum.
I also checked my books for an Elizabeth Ruth Slocum and came up empty. In my two Slocum books there are 64 persons named Elizabeth, showing no middle initial or name. It is very possible that your Elizabeth is one of them, but it will require a lot of checking. Do you have any other clues as to who her father was ?
When I have some time, I'll see what I can find in the Elizabeth list close to the date you posted.I presently have one other project that I have to finish supplying material to, on this site. I wanted to finish it today but got detained. As soon as that is done, I'll get to yours..
