NameRuth SHATTUCK 32,293
Birth Date24 Jun 1668
Birth PlaceWatertown, Massachusetts
FatherSgt. John SHATTUCK (1647-1675)
MotherRuth WHITNEY (1645-)
Misc. Notes
Bond294 gives her birthdate as “Jan. 24, 1667-8.”

The marriage shown here between Jonathan Farnsworth and Ruth Shattuck is almost certainly incorrect and needs to be revised. It is certain that Jonathan Farnsworth had a wife named Ruth, and that John Shattuck has a daughter Ruth, but it is unlikely that these two Ruths are the same. See the 2nd Torrey supplement which apparently stated that Jonathan’s wife was definitely not a Shattuck. The erroneous connection apparently comes from conjectures made initially by Lemuel Shattuck, which were then reported as confirmed in later works such as The Farnsworth Memorial.
