    • From Albert Stokes, "The Rue Family":

      On Dec. 8, 1762, John and Mathias Rue of Monmouth County, wards, children of William Rue of said county, deceased, make choice of guardian: "We the under subscribers do choose Jas. Abraham Jr. for a guardian to act in place of mother deceased." The document was signed by Ellen Rue and Ann Rue, who were of age, and John and Matthias Rue. Fellow bondsman was Jas. Abraham, Sr. Under date of June 28, 1766, Matthew and Rachel Rue of Monmouth County, children of William Rue of said county, choose as guardian William Perrine of Upper Freehold, said county. Fellow bondsman: John Rue of said county. (NJA wills, 4:367).

      Matthias (shown as Matthew in transcript, but believe this is a typo - h.b.) Rue, son of William, was a private in Capt. Kenneth Hankinson's Company, First Regiment, Monmouth Militia. He and Seargeant william Johnson were taken prisoners at the Battle of Navesink, Feb 28, 1777 and conveyed to New York, where Matthias died in prison Feb. 28, 1777 (records of Adjutant Gen. of NJ). On Mar 22, 1777, his wife Elizabeth (Gaston?) was appointed administrator of his estate with James Gaston as felowbondsman (NJA wills, 5:437). On Mar 26, 1777, Martha, William, and John Rue, of Monmouth County, children of Matthias Rue of said county, deceased, became wards of william Perine, their uncle, fellowbondsman being John van Kirk of said county. On May 23, 1780, the same children made choice of James Mount as their guardian, fellowbondsman, Joseph Holmes, Seargean William Johnson was married to Ann Perrine, the daughter of John Perrine (Tory John) and Mary Rue, and thus his wife was a first cousin of Matthias. The testimony of Sergeant Johnson establishing the date of Matthias Rue's death is recorded in Book I of Miscelaneous Records oat the Monmouth County Clerk's office, Freehold.
