Allan & WRG: Ruth Hubbard as the daughter of Jonathan and Rebecca
(Brown) Hubbard makes alot more sense. I had her as the daug. of
Jonathan & Hannah (Rice) Hubbard -- seemingly missing a generation since
Hannah Rice (b. 1658) would have been in her late 50s when Ruth was born
in circa 1716.
According to my info, Ruth Hubbard was the 'widow of Rev. David Stearns'
when she married Rev. Aaron Whitney on 6 Nov 1768, as his 2nd wife. She
died at the age of 72 on 1 Nov 1788 and is buried in Keene, New
The bibliography of the source Allan cited:
Rev. Henry H. Sanderson, "History of Charlestown, New-Hampshire, The Old
No. 4, Embracing the Part Borne by Its Inhabitants in the Indian, French
and Revolutionary Wars, and the Vermont Controversy. Also, Genealogies
and Sketches of Families from Its Settlement to 1876" (1876)
It is available from the New England Historic and Genealogical Society
in their lending library as Call No. F/44/C4/S2.
