Sarah Hutchison Ruble wife of James Ruble is not listed with the Borens in 1880
and I have not as yet found her in any other household. She died in Oct. of 1887
so she has either not moved to IL. Yet or something. This Uriel Boren has to be
the one married to Eliza. I need to research the Colvins more because apparently
both Uriel Boren and Eliza were married before.

John Rubel-John Ruble in Virginia
The following information about our 1761 John Ruble is taken from answers to questions to John Ruble
by J.P. Henry Surber in White oak Township, Highland County, Ohio, June 21, 1833. I have condensed
the two pages of questions and answers somewhat for those who might not be able to read the copy of
the Pension application in the Appendix.)
John Ruble was born in Shanandoah County in 1761. In September 1777 he was drafted for three months
service in the Virginia Militia. Under Capt. Anthony Rader's command he marched to the headwaters of
the Greenbrier River to Fort Work to protect the people from attack by the hostile Indians. (Headwaters of
the Greenbrier River are in or near Monroe County, Virginia = Now West Virginia) " I was frequently sent
out by my Captain as a spy against the Indians. In performing this duty as a spy, I ranged through the
country in the neighborhood of Fort Work. I was discharged at the end of the three months and returned
to Rockingham County."
"In July 1778 I was again drafted for the Virginia Militia to serve against the Indians under Capt.
Abram Linkhorn, which company belonged to the regiment commanded by Col. Benjamin Harrison. I was
marched to a point on the Ohio River about fifty miles below Fort Pitt where I joined General McIntosh
service. At that point during a month I helped build Fort McIntosh. I was then marched to the headquarters
of the Tuscrawas River in the Northwet Territory in pursuit of hostile indians. There I helped build Fort
Senuance. (Massilon=Canton, Ohio area.) I remained there several weeks during which time General
McIntosh made a treaty with the indians. I served four months during this period. I was discharged and
returned to Rockingham County."
"In August 1781 I was again drafted and served under Capt.Bags in Col. Darke's Regiment. I was marched
to Yorktown which was occupied by the British Army under General Cornwallis. We joined General
Washington before Yorktown. I remained in active service before said town until 3 days before the surrender
of Cornwallis. I received my discharge and returned to Rockingham County, Virginia."
He also stated that he lived in Rockingham County about 20 years. Moved to Shanadoah, Va. Lived there a
few years, then to Augusta County for 7 years, when I moved to Monroe County, Virginia.
Just when John arrived in Monroe County is not known/
(Albertine (Aunt Tine) Ruble Louderback, daughter of John P. Ruble furnished the following information.)
John Ruble born 1761 died 1839 in Highland County Ohio married Sarah Ballard
2-2-John, Jr.-married Isabella Snodgrass
2-3-Andrew -married Rebecca Clark
3-1-John P. Ruble son of Andrew and Rebecca Clark Ruble
4-1-Albertine daughter of John P. Ruble and Jemima Stout
2-4-James married Sarah Hutchison
Aunt Tine wrote " Grandfather Ruble's name was Andrew, his father's name was John Ruble born in old
Virginia. His wife a Ballard. Grandmother Rubles name was Rebecca Clark, daughter of John Clark.
Rebecca's mother was a Cunningham. She was born in Monroe County, West Virginia.
Aunt Tine also added that Andrew had four brothers. James, William, Jack(John Jr.) and George
Monroe County, West Virginia records show the following:
1. John Ruble , Jr. married Isabella Snodgrass Oct. 10, 1810
2. James Ruble married Sarah Hutchison Jan. 19, 1813
3. John Ruble and his wife Sarah sold 200 acres of land on Turkey Creek to Goerge Barne on Sept. 21, 1821.
This is all that I know about the history of the 1761 John Ruble in Virginia. At this time a genealogist in
Winchester, Virginia, is still searching for information regarding John and his relationship to George and
Joseph Ruble son of John Ruble and Sarah Ann Coffman
John Ruble son of Balzer Ruble and Mary Surber.
Joseph Ruble who makes his home in Newburg, Township, is one of those enterprising and useful men
who names are familiar through the lenth and breadth of the communities in which they reside.
Mr. Ruble's birth occurred in Highland County, Ohio August 13, 1826, being the second of in number of
the ten children born to his parents, John and Sara Ann (Coffman) Ruble. His youth was passed in his
native county and there he received his education and there learned the principles which have guided
his prosperous life over the numerous shoals that too often beset the pathway through life.
Our subjuect's father and mother both came from Pennsylvania when they are quite young and after
their marriage settled in Highland County, Ohio, where they continued to reside until death came and
claimed them. They were deeply religious people and took an active interest in promoting the religious
and educational causes of the place in which they lived.
After reaching manhood's estate, our , subject came to Pike County, in the spring of 1848, and on March
7,.1851, he united in marriage with Miss Rebecca Ann Foreman, who like himself was a native of Highland
County, her birth occuring January 22, 1834. To this union were born six children, viz. Martha J. who is
the wife of Hiram Weaver, Rachel Ann, who married Miss Minnie E. Benson, and Rebecca, who is the wife
of Frank Breitenbucher. Mrs. Rebecca A. Ruble died in this township, January 11, 1864, and her husband
was married on May 12, 1864, to Miss Mary Ann Foreman, who was born in Highland County October 30,
1830. They had two children, viz; Nellie, who died when eight years of age; and Tacie.
The subject of our sketch is a popular man alike in business, political and social circles and has at different
time been elected to hold offices of public trust and responsibility of no mean order. He was at one time
Highway Commissioner and filled that office most satisfactorily both to himself and the community at large.
He is a member of the Church of Christ, in which he has served as Deacon for a period of forty years. He
is also much interested in educational matters and appreciates the vast importance of a good education for
both boys and girls, in order that they may be fitted to take their places in the busy commercial world when
a necessity for so doing presents itself. His agricultural duties consume the greater portion of his time and
he devotes much attention to the cultivation of his land and also to keeping his residence and barns in good
condition. His farm comprises forty acres.
