THE BUTLERS: RUTH(3) 1756-unk

Ruth was the last child of Arthur and Saphira Hooker Chenoweth, born in Baltimore Co., MD about 1756. Arthur, a vestryman of St. Thomas Parish, recorded the births of most of his children on the church registry. Apparently in growing older, he omitted doing this for his last two children, Richard and Ruth. Little is known of Ruth's life. She is mentioned in her father's will. She married Amon Butler, Jr., the son of Amon Butler and Elizabeth Hawkins, and lived, as far as we know, in Baltimore Co., MD. They are reputed to have had 10 children. To date there is scant information on this family, however through recent contacts we have been able to extend some of this to present day descendants. Of the known two daughter lines of Arthur, this is the only one we have family information on. There is still much to be learned.

WILL of husband Amon, Jr.: Baltimore Co., VA: dated August 2, 1804
