On Ann RUTHVEN...
Ann was the daughter of Sime Ruthven and Margaret Connell, born 27 August 1820 in Edinburg,emigrated to the United States in 1839, married Charles Beere in New York City in 1841. She is one of the heirs listed in a sasine for Edinburgh as follows:

St. Cuthberts; 0- on Disp. by John Brown, formerly farmer, Pennycuik, now residing in Edinburgh, with consent of Robert Penn, builder, Edinburgh, Jun 17, 1823.
My note: One problem, the Ruthven Papers list Sime Ruthven as having no descendants.

I'm also researching Guyton, Cole, McAlister lines. Just starting on the GUINTY, SNODGRASS, PIPER line on my father's line. My ancestors came from England, Ireland, Scotland. They settled in Massachussetts, Kansas, Mississippi, Virginia, North Carolina. I have also been researching the Manning line on my fathers side. The Sanders line is nearly complete, exept the large wall between William Aaron and his ancestors (Thanks to DNA evidence disproving a large part of my work, and the work of others!). Would love to hear from any distant cousins I have out there!
