KUHN, RUTH, SWONGER posted by Dan Ruth on Thursday, March 27, 1997

RUTH, Henry Francis Know this is a shot in the dark. But, here it goes. I am looking for the parents of Henry Francis RUTH, my g-grandfather, born in 1841 in possibly Bucyrus (?) Twp. Crawford Co.Ohio. He married Martha E. SWONGER in 1866. These are the basics on Henry F. : born 1841, supposedly on Sandusky Ave. in Bucyrus. His mother was a domestic for Christian KUHN and wife of Whetstone Twp. Some report his father was English (which I doubt) and his name was Francis. The info is from his death certificate of 1916 and doubt its validity. My grandfather William H. RUTH, late of Whetstone Twp.. never knew or told who his grandfather was. Henry F. was in the Civil War Co. E 101st., died in Whetstone Twp 1916. He was baptised at the German Reform Church in Whetstone Twp. in 1857. I have no idea where those church files are now. Not even sure who I might contact. I would give anything to find any substantial lead on his father or mother. Appreciate your time and hope to hear from you. Dan Ruth,
