"The date when Ruth Vaughan Dillard died is unknown. 1844 supplemental proceedings in Rabun John’s pension application after his death verify that he left no surviving widow which indicates that Ruth Vaughan died between 1840 and 1842 and predeceased Rabun John Dillard. Her place of burial is not marked by a grave stone. 1844 Supplemental proceedings in his pension application after his death establish Rabun John Dillard’s date of death as June 4, 1842."

Comparing the two profiles, too many data fields are either conflicting or missing to tie them together at this time. I will keep an eye on both profiles and if I see enough information to tie them together in the future, I will suggest a merge.
