Simon's affair with a woman named "Jane Keeron" is well documented in the Moate Monthly Meeting minutes. It is unknown how this Keeron is related to Ruth. See Hadley Society for the Quaker records of the affair.
Simon and Ruth arrived in New Castle County, Delaware in 1712.
Ruth died on 18 Feb 1751 in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
