Deborah was born about 1640[1] OR say 1643[2] Her parents, Christopher and Margery, resided in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, at the time of her birth.


Debora Osgood is mentioned in her father's will (proved 10 Dec 1650), and she is to be paid 5 pounds out of his estate at the time of her marriage, providing she marries with the desire of his wife and consent of his overseers.[1]


Debora Osgood married John Ruse 28 Aug 1663 in Andover, Mass.[3]


John and Deborah signed the covenant for the South Church in Andover, on Oct 17, 1711.[4]


There is no death recorded in the Andover Town Vital Records, nor in the Christopher Osgood Genealogy or by Anderson in Great Migration begins, however it would seem to be after her husbands death (no real source found yet), but definitely after joining the South Church 17 Oct 1711. No doubt she died and is buried in Andover.

Osgood-769 and Osgood-20 appear to represent the same person because: Duplicate profile. Osgood-769 is unsourced death date which is main difference

Osgood-49 and Osgood-20 appear to represent the same person because: Hi, you've rejected this match before, however, I feel they are truly the same person. There is no birth or baptismal record for Deborah, therefore birthdate of 1641 or 1643 are both "about dates", probably based on the date of her marriage. There is no record of a second Deborah either (born died or married). "A Genealogy of the descendants of John, Christopher & William Osgood, mentions only one Deborah dtr of Christopher. Thanks for reconsidering. AnneB
