Ruth Maultsby was the sister of Mattie L. Maultsby, who was a daughter of Daniel L. and Smithia C. Maultsby and wife of Dr. William A. Mitchner. It appears that the Maultsbys were from Pitt County, North Carolina, and D.L. Maultsby briefly served as pastor at a Methodist church in Wilson, most likely Saint John A.M.E. Zion.

    1. I agree. I didn’t include this bit because Ruth Maultsby seems to have left Wilson shortly after, but I did find that she lived long enough to marry in a nearby city some ten years later. Whether she achieved happiness, I do not know.
