  2. A transcript of the family Bible of Ruth's son George Allanson Randall lists Ruth's death as 28 Jul 1859, but it is listed out of order, following other deaths as late as 1890 suggesting the entry was made long after the fact. Source:Shermans Of Yaxley Homepage says Ruth d. 1852 in Greenfield, Erie, PA. The obituary of Ruth's daughter Marietta says the family moved to Pennsylvania in 1838, and then to Wisconsin in 1849. Ruth's husband is buried in Anderson Cemetery, Place:Lamartine, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, United States, but there is no grave for Ruth. If Ruth's death occurred in Pennsylvania, it probably preceded the move to Wisconsin in 1849, and a likely possibility is that the date in the Bible is a decade off. Use of any later date would suggest that the death actually occurred in Wisconsin.
