May be the same person as Ruth Owings listed here with Rachel Beale as her mother. Sources list two different individuals as husband of Ruth Owings -- John Norwood and Edward Norwood. One could be in error. The "other" Ruth Owings married Edward Oursler.

Source: http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/AF/family_group_record.asp?familyid=1811568&frompage=99 lists two daughters named Ruth Owings, one born in 1696, d. 1732, the other born 1708.
Were there really two? That would eliminate some of this confusion - two mothers, two daughters.
Were there two mothers named Rachel, each with a daughter named Ruth??
The case for two daughters named Ruth:
Source: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.snacestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html (compiled by MJP Grundy, 2002): "On 3 Nov. 1729 Richard [Owings, Jr.] and his wife Sarah made a deed of gift of 'Owings Addition' to his sister Ruth NORWOOD, and on 24 May 1732 they gave Ruth, identified as 'spinster', for her 'natural life' 32 acres of 'Owings Addition' also to her."
Ruth married Edward Norwood, son of Edward Norwood and Unknown. (Edward Norwood was born about 1685 and died by 1729.)
