Precious RUBY: She is well documented by a marriage bond in Kentucky on Jan 24th 1788, signed by her father, Peter RUBY. Her mother was Jane BROOKS. Peter RUBY's ancestry is from Switzerland. She was also misidentifed by some family researchers and was called Precious Ruby JENWAY. This is also apparently an error in transcribing her name from a compiled record book. It is now thought that January, the month the marriage bond was issued, was transcribed as JENWAY. Precious and Wyand had ten (10) children - all living to maturity.
