William Perry and Mary Jane were my great-grandparents and they did not have a child named Ruth.

However, there was a lady named Ruth Newlin, born around 1802, from North Carolina that married a William Hobson, born around 1797. She was listed in the 1850 Parke County, Indiana census as a 48-year-old widow with a 10-year-old son named William. Thru the years, a number of people of people have mistakenly thought that Ruth was the mother of my William Perry. As much as I would like for that to be the case, it just isn't so. I have been able to track that William and he lived somewhere else and married someone other that my great-grandmother Mary Jane Chastain so he definitely isn't the one. :-{
