Precious was born about 1767.[citation needed] She passed away about 1834.[citation needed]

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.

Ruby-935 and Ruby-1 appear to represent the same person because: It is mentioned in Priscilla's profile that she was also called Precious. Same person, same details.
I found records on FamilySearch indicating that 31 Oct 1834 is her death date and she was born 23 Jan 1767. I will edit accordingly, a this makes much more sense...
If Precious Ruby was born in 1834 and married Wyand Pennebaker born in 1763, they couldn't have produced Samuel W Pennebaker in 1796. Either her birth date is wrong or the relationship is.
