She married Jonathan Slocum February 23, 1757 in Warwick, Kent County. He was born May 01, 1733 in East Greenwich, Kent County, Rhode Island, and died December 16, 1778 in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

Notes for Ruth Tripp:

Ruth Tripp married Jonathan Slocum, had, and raised 10 children. After moving to
Wilkes Barre in 1777 carrying with her an 18 month old son, Ruth Tripp Slocum
gave birth to her last child on September 12, 1778, 2 months and 9 days after
the massacre of 226 friends and neighbors in the Wyoming Valley.
When her last son was seven weeks old, on Monday November 2, 1778, a
shot shocked her into opening the door to see, dead at her feet, the neighbor
boy, Kingsley, aged 15, being scalped by his own knife! The Indian being joined
by two others, entered the house as she grabbed up son Jonathan, ran with all
who could follow, out the back door, over the log fence, into the swamp for
temporary saftey.
She watched in horror as 10 year old Mary came running to join her,
carrying in her arms little brother Joseph and the Indians Laughing at her as
they ransacked the house for anything they could carry off. Ebenezer Slocum,
then thirteen years old, crippled from an injury, unable to run with the
others, was caught inside with little 5 year old Frances who had hid under the
staircase with another neighbor boy, Kingsley. When the three Indians began to
drag off Frances, Ebenezer, and the Kingsley boy, it was too much for Ruth Tripp
Slocum. She rushed from her hiding place, with tears streaming down her face
implored the savages to release the children. They did release the crippled
Ebenezer, but laughing, one of the Indians slung little Frances over his
shoulder; the second Indian did the same to the Kingsley boy, while the
third Indian gathered up plunder from the house. The three dashed across the
road to the woods. The last time Ruth was to ever see her daughter Frances, she
was screaming for her mother to save her, as she brushed her long red hair back
from her face with one hand, reaching out for her mother with the other!!
On May 6, 1807, Ruth Tripp died with that last picture in her mind....
Still in her mind, after 28 years, 6 months and 4 days!!

Notes for Jonathan Slocum:

Jonathan Slocum was shot through the head, on his own property by Indians on
December 16, 1778. His son William Slocum was shot in the leg while escaping
from the same Indians. He carried the shot in his leg with him the rest of his
life. Jonathan's lot was bordered by the present Main, Union, Canal,
(Pennsylvania Avenue) and North Streets. Jonathan was originally buried in the
old grave yard on East Market Street, but was later moved to Hollenback
Jonathan, raised a Quaker, never carried a gun and stayed with his
family, in his home, during the massacre of July 3, 1778. Two hundred twenty
six fellow compatriots were slaughtered and scalped for 10 dollars each.
