Hi Betty,

It isn't Ruth, but there are a couple of Burgess listed in this book: http://books.google.com/books?id=Q3zYusa_mHkC&printsec=frontcover&dq=First+Settlers+Colchester&hl=en&sa=X&ei=48fgUbC4J-KniQKXnoGICw&ved=0CC8Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=burgess&f=false

The book is Historical and Genealogical Record of the First Settlers of Colchester ...By Thomas Miller.

Did Ruth and Nathan live in Kempt in Hants County? There are several Burgess families there, and another user on WikiTree, Doug Coldwell (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Coldwell-1) has a lot of information on Burgesses who immigrated from England to Rhode Island, and then settled in Hants County and in and around Kempt. You could send him a message to see if he could point you to resources for finding out more about Ruth.

Hi Betti,

Is Burgess her maiden or married name? I live in Colchester County, NS and I know of some Burgesses. Did she live in NS or move elsewhere? Any additional info could help!

Eugene,Ruth Burgess  Born Sept.5-1823 married  Nathan Lake.Born 1822. They were my 2-times great grandparents. We haven't been able to find out anything about Ruth. I think my grandmother must of been named after her as her name is also Ruth.They lived (as far as we know) in the Hants Co. area of N.S.
