I'll see if can word what I was trying to say a little more clearly. As of 1675, John GAITHER and his wife Ruth had no children. I wasn't saying that they never had children after that time.
I don't know of anyone who questions John and Ruth having 8 children. What no one has ever been able to supply is a record, or evidence that John's wife Ruth and Richard BEARD's daughter Ruth are the same person. Some people have listed Ruth as a MORELY, taking the informaion from Newman's first edition of Anne Arundel Gentry in 1933. He corrected that in his second edition in 1970.
The differences after that are how many generations of Johns there were. I discussed that on my page, in that I believe that the John who married Ruth, is the son of John the immigrant (born ca. 1599).
