Ruth Wadsworth1

d. 1800
ChartsDescendants of John Heaton of Lincolnshire, including the Immigrant Nathaniel
Marriage*Ruth Wadsworth may have been the name of the woman who married Daniel Heaton as reported by a 2nd great grandson of Daniel's in his Sons of the Revolution application based upon Daniel's son David's service. Ruth may have been from Connecticut, but more likely was from New Jersey, and they probably married there. Heaton Families II stated that Daniel married Ruth Wadsworth in Connecticut in 1734, and that she was born in Framingham, Massachusetts on 14 April 1711 to John Wadsworth and Elizabeth Stanley. Well.... it turns out that John and Elizabeth Wadsworth had a daughter Ruth, born on 14 April 1711 in Farmington, Connecticut. However, their Ruth Wadsworth married Elisha Lewis on 18 April 1739 in Farmington, and died on 15 October 1776 in Farmington. Ruth's husband, Elisha Lewis was born on 23 July 1710 in Farmington to Nathaniel and Abigail (Ashley) Lewis, and died in Farmington on 13 May 1769. Both Elisha Lewis and his wife, Ruth (Wadsworth) Lewis were buried in Memento Mori Cemetery, Farmington, Connecticut.

One of the things we've learned as we've improved our genealogical problem solving skills is how tempting it is to jump to the wrong conclusions in our desire to "connect the dots". We're guessing that somewhere along the line of Daniel's descendants, someone stated his wife's name was "Ruth" or even "Ruth Wadsworth", maybe from one of the Wadsworth families of New Jersey. Over time, that "information" has been passed along in the Heaton family, with someone even selecting the Connecticut origins for Ruth we now find published in the Heaton Families II as fact and, sadly, duplicated hundreds of times on websites and other electronic genealogical trees. It's sad because we realize that once the untruth reaches the internet, it never goes away.2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,1
Relocation*1770Daniel and his wife Ruth remained in Morris County until the mid 1760s when they joined their sons, first in northern Virginia and then finally about 1770 in that part of Westmoreland County that would, in 1781, become Washington County, and in 1796, Greene County, Pensylvania.10,11
(Wife) Death1796Ruth became a widow when Daniel Heaton died in 1796.2,12
Death*1800She died in 1800 in Greene County, Pennsylvania.10

Marriage*22 August 1855She married Robert Potterton, son of Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, on 22 August 1855 in St. Mary's Church, Jervis Street, Dublin.1,3,2
Marriage Settlement*Mary's dowry was a farm, two hundred and sixty eight English acres at Annaduff, County Leitrim.2
No Issue*Robert and Mary (Waldron) Potterton had no children.1,2
Illness*7 March 1880Mary's husband's over-achieving brain became mentally ill over time. According to Joyce, Robert's mental decline began to show in 1871 when he was only forty-eight. That year, he was absent for illness for seven months from his post as District Inspector in Limerick. Then, from 1874 until 1876, when he became District Inspector in Armagh, he was absent altogether. Further evidence that he may have had problems was provided by a deed of 1877. It recorded that his brother, William, acting as a trustee of Robert and Mary’s marriage settlement, took over the lease of the farm at Annaduff. In April 1880, Robert was listed on a deed as "of Armagh", although by that time he was actually in a mental hospital in Dublin. His wife Mary, on 7 March 1880, had had him committed to Hampstead, Drumcondra, a private mental hospital in the Dublin suburb, while she took up residence nearby at Alpine Lodge, Glasnevin. Robert, aged fifty-seven at the time, remained at Hampstead until his death twenty-one years later.2
