Google Books doesn't describe when Ruthy Bessom (b Collier) died nor which of Capt. Philip Besom's kids are hers. Assuming death in 1794, puts her last child as Martha (b 1791). and the first child of second wife Elizabeth (Betsey) Lewis (m Jan 27 1795) as Philip (b Nov 19, 1795 - 10 months after marriage)
