  • Notes 
    • There are serious errors in the description of Ruth's life in The Janes Family. It says that Ruth had four children with John Searle: James b. 12 Feb 1675, Ebenezer, b. 9 Jan 1679, John b. 6 Aug 1690, and Elisha b. 1695. However, I have found only one child (John) born before Ruth's death in 1672. Also, Northampton vital records show that John Searls married Mary North in Northampton in 1675 and with her had sons James b. 12 Feb 1675 and Ebenezer b. 9 Jan 1679. The parentage of John b. 1690 is unclear.
      The Janes Family also says that John Searle died in the Pascomac (Pascommuck) massacre in 1704 and that Ruth subsequently married a widower Nathaniel Alexander. According to New England Marriages Prior to 1700 there was a John Searle (d. 1704) who married Abigail Pomeroy 5 Apr 1694 in Springfield, Massachusetts, and she subsequently married Nathaniel Alexander. John Searles and Abigail had a son Elisha b. 4 Feb 1694 in Northampton. It is possible that this John Searles was Ruth's son b.1670 and Elisha was Ruth's grandson.
      All dates are old style. [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
