Meredith, I have some good information for you. I have found several records that have the information you are looking for. These are on-line databases so you can do follow-up research on the sources and locations in the data.

Ruth Barrows Bourne married Samuel Pearson Dean (two dates: 11 Apr 1841 and 26 Apr 1841) in Plympton, Plymouth, Massachusetts

I then searched for her death record and found her listed as Ruth B. Ford Deane, died 4 Mar 1904, So. Weymouth, Massachusetts. This record shows the secondary information as follows:

POB: Hanson
Father: Isaac Ford, POB: Hanson
Mother: Mehitable Barrows, POB: Hanson
Spouse: Samuel P. Deane

Her fatherís name of FORD confused me and I thought she may have been illegitimate and her mother married a BOURNE after Ruthís birth. This would make sense, but I did find some addition records with differing data as you will see below.

I did a search on her motherís name and found these additional records;

I hope this helps you in your quest, just follow-up with the sources and locations for primary source verification.

Good hunting and best regards, William
