  • Notes 
    • Elizabeth's full name is thought to be Elizabeth Jones, born 23 Jan 1808.

      A John W. Jones died in Morris Township, Washington County, PA on Nov 11, 1912. He was buried in Prosperity Cemetery. The death certificate gives Nov 7, 1825 as his date of birth, which coincides well with the John W. Jones, age 25, who was living with Samuel and Elizabeth Rutan in 1850. Elizabeth's maiden name is thought to be Jones, and I am wondering if John W. Jones was her brother. Elizabeth and Samuel were living next to an Andrew Jones family in 1860.

      The certificate lists John W. Jones' birthplace as Pennsylvania, father's name - George Jones; mother's name - Elizabeth Baldwin. Both parents were said to have been born in Pennsylvania. The informant was Robert Jones of Prosperity.

    2. [S1809] Pennsylvania, Washington - 1840 - Samuel Rutan.
      {Samuel Rutan head of household
      1 male under age 5:[?]
      2 males age 5-10: [George, Daniel]
      1 male age 10-15: [Cela]
      1 male age 20-30: [Samuel - but the age is off]

      1 female age 5-10: [Malinda]
      1 female age 40-50: [Elizabeth - but age is off]

      It's possible that John Jones, b. 1826, was living with the family. In that case, the census would look like this:

      1 male under age 5: Daniel
      2 males age 5-10: George, Cela
      1 male age 10-15: John Jones
      1 male age 20-30: Samuel, age is off
      2 females under age 5: Maria, Rebecca
      1 female age 5-10: Malinda
      1 female age 40-50: Elizabeth, age is off}

    3. [S1813] Pennsylvania, Washington - 1860 - Samuel Rutan.

      Elizabeth Rutan, age 51, born in Pennsylvania
      Maria Rutan, age 22, born in Pennsylvania
      Rebecca Rutan, age 20, born in Pennsylvania

      Note: Samuel & Elizabeth are living next to the Andrew Jones family.}
