     Rev. Joseph Gehman Ruth was born on 23 September 1857 at New Britain Twp., Bucks Co., PA.1 He was the son of Noah Ruth and Maria Gehman.1 Rev. Joseph Gehman Ruth married Mary Oberholtzer Kratz, daughter of John Alderfer Kratz and Margaret Oberholtzer, on 1 January 1884.1 Rev. Joseph Gehman Ruth was Mennonite, elected to ministry November, 1905.1 He died on 27 December 1928 at New Britain Twp., Bucks Co., PA, at age 71 Obituary (findagrave.com):

Ruth.-Bishop Joseph G. Ruth was born near Line Lexington, Pa., Dec. 23, 1857; died at his late home near Colmar, Pa., Dec. 27, 1928; aged 71 y. 3 m. 4 d. On Jan. 1, 1884, he was married to Mary Kratz of Hatfield, Pa. To this union were born five children (Maggie, wife of Henry Delp; Emma, wife of Preston Souder; Ella, wife of Wallace Souder; and Horace and Alma at home). These children are all identified with the Mennonite Church. Twelve grandchildren also survive. The mother was taken away during the influenza period of 1919 and the father after preaching a stirring sermon on Sunday evening, Dec. 23, was overtaken the following week with a slight attack of influenza, and passed away unexpectedly to his heavenly home. The body was laid to rest on Jan. 1, 1929. Bro. Ruth is greatly missed in the home, community, and church. He was an active Sunday school worker long before his ordination to the office of minister on Oct. 24, 1905. On Feb. 25, 1926 he was ordained to the office of bishop. His executive ability was felt throughout his bishop district and he could speak authoritatively on any subject assigned to him. He was a deep thinker, a staunch defender of the faith, and zealous in safeguarding the principles of his beloved church. We think of the statement in II Sam. 1: 25, "How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle." During the World War Bro. Ruth served on a committee visiting the boys in the camps. He was much concerned about their welfare. He paid many visits to Camp Meade and also visited Camp Dix. Services were conducted at the home by Bro. Jonas Mininger and at the Line Lexington church by the brethren Aaron Freed and Abram Clemmer.
He was buried on 1 January 1929 at Line Lexington Mennonite Church Cemetery, Line Lexington, Bucks Co., PA, Find A Grave Memorial# 52446305.
