From http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=23654674 :

dau of Charles Wells and Elizabeth Prather. Ruth was one of the 12 children of Elizabeth, and of the 22 children of Charles. m: Abraham S. Brickhead Oct 23, 1814, Tyler Co VA.
Twelve known children, all born in Tyler Co VA BRICKHEAD: -Henry P. C. -Charles W. -John J. abt 1817- -Elizabeth Prather 1818- m: John Wells Neff 1840 -Abraham S. Jr. -Rebecca Marie m: Clark Wells Prather -William J. abt 1823 -James M. abt 1824 -Prather 1827- -John Quincy Adams 1830- -Delilah S. abt 1830 m: John McKay Jr. From the Will of Ruth's father, Charles Wells, dated Dec 13 1814: "Item 8. To my daughter Ruth Birckhead I give and bequeath One Thousand Acres of Land on Sugartree Creek, a branch of Middle Island Creek, adjoining land of Benjamin Lawrence, Richard Owings and others, beginning at a Sugar Tree in the forks of said Creek; and Two Hundred Dollars to be paid by my Executor hereafter to be named; to be h6rs and her heirs or assigns forever." From the Will of Ruth's mother, Elizabeth Prather Wells, probated Spring of 1845: "6th. I will and bequeath unto my daughter Ruth Birckhead, wife of Abraham Birckhead the sum of Five Hundred Dollars in addition to what she has already received. I desire that my executors do not pay said legacy to my said daughter Ruth for at least five years after my decease unless she should become a widow before. ... 11th. It is my will and desire that all my houses and lots in the Town of Sistersville in said county of Tyler be by my executors hereinafter named sold as soon as convenient after my decease for the best price that that can be had for the same and after payment of the above legacies I devise and bequest the residue of property to my above named four daughters to be equally devided between them, share and share alike. 12th. It is my will and I hereby bequeath to my said four daughters all my household and kitchen furniture, bedding and wearing apparel, plate and all other articles of personal property to be equally divided between them, said division to be made by themselves and in case they can not agree upon said division then it is my desire that Charles P. Wells one of my executors hereafter named divide the same."

--note, the four daughters referenced were Sarah, Delilah, Ruth and Elizabeth "Betsey". It is a puzzle why Ruth is buried at Ashley, Pike MO., and not in Wells Cemetery, Tylor WV with her husband, parents, some children and several siblings. sources include census and cemetery records, FAG memorials and RootsWeb orldConnect Project; Gault and Collaterals, where copies of the Wills of Charles and Elizabeth Wells are posted.

Another source states that he died at the Shawnee Mission in 1834. Burial?


Research Notes: Husband - William Jackson "Captain" Fish

May have been 1/4 Miami and 1/8 Delaware (see below).
--------------
From text accompanying a photograph from the Smithsonian Institution archives:

"[Leander] Jackson Fish's father [Paschal Fish] was half Shawnee, one eighth Miami and one sixteenth Delaware. "
----------
If the math is correct and Paschal Fish's mother was 100% Shawnee, then his father [William Jackson] was probably 1/4 Miami and 1/8 Delaware. On the other hand, if Paschal Fish's mother was Polly Rogers, either Polly was 1/4 Miami and 1/8 Delaware with William Jackson Fish identifying himself as Shawnee, or Polly was 100% Shawnee and William Jackson Fish was 1/4 Miami and 1/8 Delaware.

---------
From Historic Shawnee Names of the 1700s - http://www.shawnee-traditions.com/Names-7.html

"Fish aka William Jackson - Adopted-white born about 1760-died 1833 - adopted son of Black Fish before 1778, raiding Ohio River valley 1788, Little Turtle War, move to MO 1828, husband 1st about 1780 of Elizabeth Bishop-white, 2nd about 1789 of Shawnee Woman, 3rd 1798 of Polly Rogers-1/2 Shawnee Metis (granddaughter of Black Fish), father with Shawnee Woman of Arch/90, Pascal/92, Isaac/94, Andrew/95, Jesse/96-all 1/2 Shawnee Metis, no children of record with Elizabeth, with Polly of Elizabeth Nakease/98, John/99, William Jr/1800-all 1/4th Shawnee Metis"

See notes under Joseph Jackson. It is unlikely that the Joseph Jackson captured by the Shawnee with Daniel Boone in 1778 was this William Jackson's father since records show this William adopted by the Shawnee before that Joseph was captured.

---------------------

See KHC, vol. 9, pp. 166,167. Historian Rodney Staab of Shawnee Mission, Kansas, has furnished me with an excellent account of Chief Fish written by Fern Long. Her information conflicts somewhat with other sources, but it should not be missed by anyone doing research on the Jackson/Fish family. According to her 1978 article on Chief Fish, she agrees that [William Jackson Fish] was captured as a youth and raised by the Shawnees in the band of Lewis Rogers whose daughter he married. Paschal Fish was "a large-framed man" who "also acquired the Indian ways seeming to be totally Indian." but at the same time, she says "these Shawnees had associated with white people for generations and desired a settled life with homes, schools, churches, ___and agriculture."

----------------
From Kansas State Historical Society
Letter 13 Jan 1831 from Richard W. Cummins, U.S. Ind. Agt., Delaware & Shawnee Agency to William Clark, S.I.A., St. Louis:
"Chiefs of Fish's or Jackson's band of Shawnees have agreed to allow a school to be started. Revd. Mr. McAllister & Thomas Johnson hope to have school in operation early in spring." 29 30
