Help w/ a Larkin reference for Ruth Lyon

This is to request some specific help with the profile of Ruth Lyon (b. ~1775). She is apparently discussed on several pages of a resource on the Larkin family of Rhode Island, so must be a descendant.

If you own the book - Edward Larkin of Rhode Island: Freeman of Newport 1655 and of Westerly 1664. The First Six Generations - and wouldn't mind paraphrasing any relevant key information from pages 87 & 151-154 to add to her profile, that would be greatly appreciated.

Her first husband, Salmon Osborn, died young, so Ruth remarried, possibly first to a Seeley and later apparently to a Titus Munson (still researching confirmation). Both Salmon and the couple's only son, Ozias, are mentioned on p. 151 of the Larkin book, according to the name index online.

Appropriate citations to the book are of course important.

Thank you in advance.

Update: Have source that indicates that Ruth (Lyon) Osborn remarried to an Oliver Larkins.

However there is a source that a Ruth Osborn married a Titus Munson.

And that Ruth (Lyon) Seeley remarried to a Titus Munson. And this Ruth apparently had land dealings with Zach. & Ruth Lyon (same names as the parents of the Ruth Lyon who married Salmon Osborn).

All of this in the same part of Connecticut.
Don, Have you tried getting the book through interlibrary loan? It's been one of my big go tos during the Covid thing. I had a library that just scanned pages and emailed them to me recently at no charge.
Thanks, Anne. The thought had occurred. I'm actually coming back to this issue and finding that some new info only highlights the questions. May have to see about an ILL (or a drive down to Hathi) to see what light this book can shed on Ruth Lyon.
