Benjamin Ruscoe, b.1756, Connecticut

Looking for the parents of the BENJAMIN RUSCO who was born May, 31 1756 and died February 7, 1830 according to an entry in the 1811, Mott_Hand_Rusco Bible as described in the “Connecticut Nutmegger,” Volume 12, Issue #2, September 1979). He married Esther (last name unknown) who was born January,4,1747 and died January 11, 1828 (Ibid).

This is NOT the Benjamin who went to Greenwich, Huron County, Ohio.

That Benjamin was born February 7, 1797 and was the son of Josiah RUSCO ( Josiah> Theophilus> Thomas> John>William) and his wife Hannah BOUTON (daughter of Eleazar BOUTON and Elizabeth SEYMOUR) who also went to Greenwich along with Benjamin’s twin brother, Jeremiah. They are all buried in the Rusco Cemetery in Greenwich.

Who was the Benjamin Rusco born in 1756 ( probably in Connecticut) as noted in the Mott’s Bible?

There is some thought that he may have been the father of Reuben (b. 1770) Russel (b. 1779) and Bennet (b. 1782). Possibly also of Anson (b. 1784) and the Sarah (b. 1774). However, I have not been able to find any proof of this. Only lots of speculation.

If you have any information or suggestions of things to explore, search, please let me know. I am happy to share what I know with other Ruscoe/Roscoe researchers.
