I am seeking living descendants of Samuel RAMSEY in and about the Linn Co., MO area.
Samuel RAMSEY was born ca. 1794 in Tennessee. Sometime before 1844, he married Rutha (Shires) Moore, who had been married to Amos Moore. She had two sons, William H. Moore, and Henry Clay Moore.
She was at least the second marriage for Samuel RAMSEY.
By 1850, Samuel and Rutha are residing in Linn Co., MO.
The 1850 Census, Linn County, Linnaeus, MO shows:
Ramsey, Samuel 56 M Farmer
Rutha 28 F
Anslum I. 18 M Farmer
Nancy A. 16 F
Allamanda 14 F
Aracisa C. 11 F
William H. 7 M
Henry C. 4 M
David B. 2/12 M
Obviously, the first four children listed could not be Rutha's. Unknown who Samuel's first wife was.
I am descended from the second marriage of Samuel's oldest son, Anslum.
I'm hoping to find living descendants of this family in MO, to see if we can put some information together on our common family line.
