In 1893, Ruthven's daughter Ruth was born there. In 1900, Ruthven, a bookkeeper, had in his household his wife, his daughter Ruth, and William and Elizabeth Thompson, Agnes' siblings. Ruthven may be the "R P Van Zandt," mentioned in the Trenton Times, May 8, 1901, as a Supervising deputy grand regent of the Royal Arcanum. The Royal Arcanum lists itself as a fraternal benefit society. In 1907 [ibid] R P Van Zandt is mentioned as the chairman of the Committee on State of the Order, Royal Arcanum.

In 1930, Agnes was living with her daughter Ruth and Ruth's husband Harry Austin.
