Name on headstone is spelled wrong! My Uncle and his cousin purchased and placed these stones for Ruhama and her kids. They did not know what dates to put so are left blank.

No proof she was ever married and as far as anyone knows she never married but did have 7 illegitimate children. Some are listed on the 1850 Census. Her children are:
Jane Goff Cresson1842-1893
Richard "Dick" Goff 1846-
Susan Ruth Goff 1848-
James "Jim" Goff 1850-
Lucie Goff 1854-
Elizabeth "Eliza or Elise" 1856-
Sarah Jane "Sally" Goff Mason 1857-1925

I do know who the father of her children was but cannot say at this time. People are making up who the father is of Ruhama's children. I know who it was by a legitimate source but I promised I would not post it online.

Some trees on ancestry have Ruhama married to a Charley Goff but this is her brother, Charles

This information is from someone I have been communicating with who has and is still researching the Goff family for over 50 years.
