Reuben CRAIG married Ruth Ann RODMAN

       In New Jersey, as it has been passed on, Reuben CRAIG and Ruth Ann RODMAN were married.  The date and exact location are not known yet and if birth dates are correct, a  15 year age difference existed between them.
       The uncited CRAIG family history from the 1980's states Ruth's birthplace as Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey.  Using that location as a clue to look for a marriage record has been unsuccessful online, the searches have yielded no evidence to date.
       It is assumed the marriage has to have taken place before Nov 1845, since there first child, Thomas Samuel, was born by then in Ohio.  They are living in Butler County Ohio in the 1850 U.S. census and Ruth's estimated age is 23.  So Butler County is another possibility for their marriage, yet still nothing found online.
       Eleven children came from the union of Reuben and Ruth.  The first three being born in Ohio and the last 8 being born in Indiana.
