Vital record look up

Vital record look up

Surnames: Wilcox, Allen
I would like a VR lookup for Ruth Allen, married Stephen Wilcox
Feb. 1782.
Record has both of Dartmouth, Ma.
That is all the information I have on her. Stephen was born Dartmouth, 18 May 1747.
Would NEHGS have anything on her?
I know not much information, but reading other message on here, I am hopeful something can be found. Thanks

There was a Ruth born 01-Mar-1760 to Jedediah and Eunice Allen [Dartmouth VR 1:24].

Rather than a man who would have been nearly 35 at marriage it is much more likely that the Stephen Wilcox who married Ruth Allen 13-Feb-1782 [Dartmouth VR 2:548] was either:

Stephen, son of Jabez and Hannah Wilcox, born 28-Apr-1757 [Dartmouth VR 1:303]


Stephen, son of Daniel and Sylvis Wilcox, born 20-Sep-1757 [Dartmouth VR 1:303]
