Ruth was born in 1742 in Baltimore Maryland to John and Diane Lane (Tracy) Cross she had nine siblings

Ruth married Joseph Cole Nov 30 1760 in Truro Massachusetts

  • SOLOMON5 COLE, SR., b. 11-03-1753, Baltimore, MD; d. 1841, SC.
  • JOSEPH COLE, JR., b. Abt. 1754, Baltimore Co., MD; d. 11-28-1822, Wilson Co., TN.
  • FEMALE COLE, b. Abt. 1756, Baltimore Co., MD; m. BENJAMIN BEACHBOARD.
  • MATTHEW COLE, b. Abt. 1760, Baltimore, MD; d. Bef. 1830, Buncombe Co., NC.
  • ELISHA COLE, b. Abt. 1761, Baltimore Co., MD; m. ELIZABETH MAYS, Abt. 1800.
  • JOHN COLE, b. Abt. 1762.
  • THOMAS COLE, b. Abt. 1764.
  • WILLIAM COLE, b. Abt. 1766; d. 1802, Laurens Co., SC.
  • DANIEL COLE, b. Abt. 1768.

It is possible that Solomon b. 1753 is the child of one of Joseph's siblings. I say that because it is before their marriage and she would have been eleven years old.

Ruth passed away in 1822 in Baltimore. Ruth was buried in the Family Cemetery, family members say it is no longer there but they did a memorial for her

Cross-1666 and Cross-187 appear to represent the same person because: bio shows many alternate dates.
