(Could the Ruth you mentioned be a second wife of Roswell Davis that you said were listed in MA for 1920 and 1930? The 1930 census should possibly give you "age at first marriage", so this may help determine if Ruth was a second wife for Roswell, if the information is there, then you can do the calculations.)

Also, after looking at the 1860 census for Amos Davis, there is a son, Frank, as well as a son, Roswell. If Frank and Roswell stayed/worked together, then this maybe be them I found in Waterford, VT in the 1880 census.

For genealogy in Orleans Co., VT, and surrounding areas in the Northeast Kingdom, you can also try searching for information on the Northeast Kingdom's website, hosted by Rootsweb.com: http://www.freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~nekg3/nekg.htm

This is from the LDS website, and I don't know how accurate this information is:

Thanks so much to everyone for taking the time to provide the info from the census images. Thanks to you, I can now piece together this Davis family. "My" Roswell C Davis was the son of Amos and Adeline, born 1859 and living in Harvard MA in 1900 and 1910 and in Auburn MA in 1920 and in Worcester City in 1930. He was married three times.
