|Death: ||Dec. 30, 1873|
Died at age 28 yrs. old. This headstone was erected by her children - A. E. and S. J. Adams.
Ruth was married two times. Her first husband was Willis D. Adams (1841-1870). They were married on November 30, 1865 in Warren County, Illinois. Ruth and Willis had two children: Alpheus E. Adams and Sarah J. (Adams) Wolfe. After Willis died, Ruth married James Oldfield (1831-1922) on February 23, 1873 in Lucas County, Iowa. Ruth died about ten months later at the age of 28. Ruth was the daughter of Edward Munford and Rachael (Alexander) Munford.
Note: It appears that her headstone is labeled "Ruth Adams" and it was erected by her two children with her first husband, Willis Adams. I have added the name "Oldfield" to her memorial, however, as that was her married name at the time of her death.
