For some time I have been searching for the parents of Ruth EDES b. 8 Dec 1764 in Needham, MA d. 7 Jan 1835 in Freeman, ME. Most entries I have seen show that the father was a Peter EDES/EADES and his mother was a Sarah MORFIN. Although I have seem no dates for Sarah, 10 Aug 1686 seems to be the concensus birth date of this Peter. Although I suppose this is possible, inasmuch as this is 78 years before the birth of Ruth, it does not seem likely that this Peter was the true father. It would seem more likely that he is the grandfather and one of his sons is the father.

I’ve also seen that this Peter had possibly up to three wives, one of which was a Martha MUDGE b. 25 Oct 1691 in Malden, MA. Apparently Martha had a son Peter, no dates found. I’ve also uncovered another Peter EDES/EADES who married a Mary DISPER/DESPER b. bef 1732.

I was hoping that someone may have additional information to unravel this mystery.
