Ruth Paddock Baldwin
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 8, 1745
Mansfield
Tolland County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Feb. 16, 1810
Dorset
Bennington County
Vermont, USA

Parents were Zachariah Paddock and Deborah Freeman.
From the web site "The Descendants of John Heywood." Her headstone is quoted in several sources as:
"The tender parent, Loving wife,
The glory of domestic Life,
The best of friends, Her husband's pride,
The poor man's trust, Her children's guide."

From "Baldwin Genealogy 1500 to 1881" by C.C. Baldwin pages 294-295, Ruth Baldwin died aged 68. [provided by contributor Fay Baldwin (#47966028)] This does not agree with the specific dates provided by the John Heywood family information. There is a 4 year discrepancy, but the headstone inscription is consistent with the age of 64 years.
