Ruth (__________)

F, #15346, b. 1788
ReferenceJared's family
Birth*1788 Ruth (__________) was born in 1788 at North Carolina age 62 in 1850 which says she was born in NC. 
Marriage* She married Aaron Thompson
CAUTION* Aaron Thompson and Ruth (__________) and Joseph Thompson have the following CAUTIONARY INFORMATION: Joseph's potential parents could be this Aaron and Ruth They are old enough that it is reasonable to assume there might have been children prior to the ones shown on the 1850 census. Ruth and children are not in the same militia district, but still not that far apart.
Quoting Annelise "Looking through the census info at this time, there are very few Thompsons in Gilmer coming from South Carolina at this time. I was intrigued to realize that your Joseph Thompson also came from South Carolina. I also noted that his first child was born in 1845 in Georgia, also indicating he arrived in Gilmer at approximately the same time as our family. Also that he named one of his daughters Rutha (perhaps after his mother Ruth?) All interesting parallels that make me wonder if he could be part of our family? Perhaps an older brother, newly married that moved to Gilmer the same time his parents did. Of course he wouldn't show up in the 1850 census with them since he was married."1 
Census1850*1850 Ruth (__________) appeared on the 1850 census as the head of household, pg 34 #236-236, Subdivision 33, Gilmer Co., Georgia, along with John J Thompson, Margaret Thompson, Elizabeth Thompson, Elijah Thompson and J Breman-Branin Thompson . Her info on the census included Thompson, Ruth 62 b.NC - Breman is more likely a grandson than a son.
