Wife of Hosea Bronson (aka Brunson). Mother of Adeline Demott Bronson/Brunson Pierce Norris.

Ruby Bronson was named as executor of her husband's estate, along with her son-in-law, Daniel Pierce, in Brighton, NY. It was "sealed" on the 4th of January 1828, so Hosea Bronson likely died in late 1827.
The name of Hosea Brunson / Bronson / Brownson has been listed also as Josiah, husband of Ruby Euphany and/or Ruby Elizabeth, depending on the writer. It appears that there is at least one Hosea and possibly several Josiah Bronson/Brownsons, of CT, that were married to a Ruby E., of Monroe county, NY. It also appears that they are probaby two distinctive couples, likely a generation apart in age. I am listing some of the sources and information below. Perhaps you may be able to sort it out correctly and help me to provide a more accurate picture.
Ruby Cheney was my Great Great Grandmother and her middle name was Euphany, not Elizabeth. I have very sketchy info about her and even less about Hosea but don't believe he was ever Josiah. I do have the same information regarding her parents and that she was born in Canterbury, CT 7/13/1786. According to information passed down from my parents, Hosea was from CT also, born in 1786 and died 10/3/1828 which must be fairly correct since I also have the information regarding his will. Ruby died about 1849 according to the little information I do have. Their daughter Almira was my Great Grandmother. Evidently your interest comes from the Adeline DeMott/Pierce line. Another sister Emeline married Daniel Pierce's brother William Henry. Most of Ruby's children migrated to Illinois or Michigan. I believe you will find the Josiah/Elizabeth Canandaigua family listed in the 1850 and 1860 census which would be quite impossible with Hosea dying before that time. I think it's great, however, that you have listed them and I had considered it in the past, Maybe someone else will see it whose family kept more
informed records and we will both learn more. If you have any questions I would be happy to try and answer them and should you get any further comments or information, I would love to hear about them.
