    Notes 
    • Additional info from Jerry Cox.
      Ruth died of Cirrhosis of the liver and dropsy. It's a guess who fathered Albert Wilkerson age 3 in 1850 living with James and Ruth. His name was likely changed to Peterson later to make simple. No Albert was in Ben Peterson's Will. There is no marriage record for a Wilkinson to Ruth and she appears single until marriage to Ben at age 33.

      Ruth Moore Peterson lied about her age as 29. She was 34 and had only been married to Ben Peterson 3 months when he died of accute dissentary (ground glass). She didn't stay with Ben's kids. In a brief deathbed will, Ben left all to the kids and "to my beloved wife Ruth, one dollar." I'm still researching Ruth since I relate to her daughter Martha Denning who drove my g-grandad to drink. She had five husbands and always lied about her age, too.

      In 1860 living in Mitcheltree Twn, Martin Co, Indiana with husband James I Denning, children Jas W. J, Elizabeth, Nancy, Martha, and Susan. Next door lives Robert Denning and wife Susan.

      In 1880 living with son-in-law Thomas Morton and daughter Susan in Halbert Twn, Martin Co., Indiana.
