OK, I am stumped. Perhaps someone else will see what I am missing.
Eddy Cole, married Ruth Salisbury on 11 Dec. 1760. Solid marriage record at Family Search. The link is in his profile. The Cole genealogy shows the marriage but no parents for her. The marriage record shows Richard and Ruth Salisbury as parents. The interesting note is at the bottom of the record:
Father's Name Richard Salebury; Mother's Name Ruth; Spouse's Name Eddy Cole
Note b 31 Dec 1722
As the date of marriage is 1860, Ruth would have been 38, and Eddy only 22. So far so good.
Now the problem - there are a huge number of family files, including one on Wikitree as well as the Sprague Project that all show Ruth, daughter of Richard and Ruth Boomer, as marrying Samuel Sprague. However I can not find a single source for that marriage. Those files all show Samuel and Ruth as having children after 1860. Family search gives a long list of children for Samuel and Ruth, but no maiden name for Ruth.
So am I the only one that has found this and everyone else is wrong? (Somehow that really seems unlikely) Or what else is going on?
Any ideas appreciated - a source really appreciated.
