Birth: Apr. 26, 1833, Canada
Death: Jan. 19, 1876
Marion County
Indiana, USA

Ruth is the daughter of William Main & Mary Polly Sherwood. She was born in L. C. Canada. She married John Newton Hamilton on 7 Mar 1848 in Kent Co, MI. They had 5 children: James William Micajah "McCager" Hamilton, George Washington, Emma Elizabeth (1855-1861), Mary Jane (Hamilton) Sewell, and John Charles (1859-1861) Emma & John died 2 days apart.

Ruth's husband is listed twice below. He is shown buried with her in Finchford Cem., and again in Riverside Cem. w/his 2nd wife Betsy, but no headstone there. I believe his children buried him with their mother, Ruth.
