DeAnn Ramey or any Ramey
Hello, my name is Dan Brown, I live in Oregon.
Seen your 1999 post on Rootsweb “William Haygen Patrick Osborn”. Your old email address of firstname.lastname@example.org
doesn’t work anymore.
I am descended from Osborn(e). I also have others in my tree who had claimed to have Cherokee blood such as Caudill and Blevins. I am currently looking for cousins or relatives who may be descendants of Alexander Ramey and Martha Brown. Alex. & Martha had a son named Wm Butler Ramey (9 Dec 1895 Volga, Johnson Co—15 Nov 1975 Ashland, Boyd Co, KY) . Butler married Pearlie Osborne (15 Dec 1900 Sitka—10 Feb 1962 Bellefont, Greenup Co, KY)—I have an obit for Wm and Pearlie. Pearlie is the daughter of Isaac “Mack” Osborn & Louisa “Lou” Vanhoose. All of these ancestors apparently lived and died in the remote area of the very small former communities of Volga and Sitka near Paintsville. I have seen the census records for this area that show these families and other close neighbors such as Salyer, Daniels, Blevins, Pennington, Vaughn, Lemaster, etc. Some of Alex. & Martha’s descendants eventually spread out into neighboring counties such as Floyd, Boyd, and Pike. My oldest Brown and Osborne ancestors were mostly from NC and VA but some also went into TN, WV, and KY. My great grandparents, George Brown (Jr.) & Anna Osborne and many of their married sons and families migrated one last time from Taylor Co, KY about 1910 to western Washington where they were all loggers.
Please pass this around to other friends, relatives or researchers
I have much other info that I’m willing to share
Can you put me in touch with anyone who has lived in Johnson Co, Ky or who has personal knowledge of the Brown, Osborne, Ramey and other families ?
