Ruth ? "Her mother was Katherine Horsfall (1727-1796)"

John HIRST & Ruth WRIGHT
m. 16 Sep 1782 St Peter's Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England
Batch M018501

BI 17 May 1808 Ruth HIRST 59 Huddersfield, Highfield Independent Chapel, Yorkshire

BI 21 Aug 1813 John HIRST 70 Huddersfield, Highfield Independent Chapel, Yorkshire

Catherine GODDARD rests beneath Tombstone number 10, having died on Feb 17th 1796 aged 69 at Dyke-end, but sadly there is nothing entered in the 'relationship' column. John HIRST and his wife Ruth rest beneath the same tombstone.

Back to this one.

Did Katherine/Catherine Horsfall marry a Goddard?

And have a daughter Ruth abt 1750 who married a Wright ?? and then later married John Hirst?

Only one descendant has the middle name Goddard.

I can't see where it says Ruth's status - spinster or widow ??

Age 30
Marriage 3 Sep 1782
