Wednesday’s child: Ruth

Just Ruth. You will find her small, plain marker beside a young maple tree in Powell Cemetery. It bears only her first name, year of birth, year of death. No other gravestones are especially close by. Who is she? Where are her parents buried?

Or are we making a faulty assumption? Perhaps this is not Ruth Somebody, but rather Somebody Ruth?

1910 – 1911

Powell Cemetery, Delaware County, Ohio


  1. I'm thinking that way as well, although I did find evidence of a few folks with the surname RUTH buried elsewhere in Delaware County.
