Ruth was baptized on July 8, 1649 in Milford (now New Haven Co.), Connecticut. She was the daughter of Henry Botsford and his wife Elizabeth Woolhead Botsford.

She became the second wife of John Baldwin, a shoemaker of Milford. They were the parents of Elnathan, Ruth, Daniel, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Timothy. Some sources also list a son Obadiah here.

John also had sons Samuel and Joseph, but researchers disagree about who their mother was.

The family removed to Newark (now Essex Co.), New Jersey, which is where her children grew up.
