About Ruth Moses

Kofi took the name Cuffee Slocum and, in 1746, he married Ruth Moses.[4] Ruth was a Native American and a member of the Wampanoag Nation on Martha's Vinyard. Cuffee Slocum worked as a skilled carpenter, farmer and fisherman and taught himself to read and write. He worked diligently to earn enough money to buy a home and in 1766 bought a 116-acre (0.47 km2) farm in nearby Dartmouth, Massachusetts. The couple would raise ten children together.
