Isaac Ramsey, Sr. and Thomas Ramsey, Sr. of Edgefield District, South Carolina

Classification: Query
Surnames: Ramsey
Seeking information on Thomas Ramsey Sr., birth approx. 1756-1765, death 1823-1829 Edgefield District, South Carolina. He lists wife Lavina and daughter Lavina and "the Rest of my Children" in his will.

He had land on Reedy Creek by 1802, where it branched off of Cuffytown Creek in the northern part of Edgefield District, close to the border with Abbeville District. He had land on Cuffytown Creek by 1801, which he may have inherited from Isaac Ramsey Sr. or bought directly.

He was listed on the 1790 Census as Thos Ramsey in Edgefield, 1800 census as Thomas Ramsey in Edgefield, 1810 census as Thomas Ramsey in Edgefield, 1820 census as Thomas Ramsey Sen. in Edgefield.

---
Isaac Ramsey Sr. birth date unknown.

He had land on Cuffytown Creek near Beaverdam Creek by 1767 , land granted 4/10/1771 on Sleepy Creek, mid-upper Edgefield County, about 7 miles from his land on Cuffytown; memorial 5/25/1771 for the land granted the month before; land granted 10/15/1774 on Sleepy Creek; land granted 12/15/1784 on Cuffytown Creek. Land granted either to Isaac Sr or Isaac Jr 1801 on Sleepy Creek for land that had been surveyed in 1770. Neither Isaac appears on the 1800 South Carolina Census, but at least one Isaac, if not more were living across the state line in Columbia County, Georgia by 1803. Not sure if it's the same Isaac(s) or not, since according to deed records the land was granted to an Isaac Ramsey in 1774. The said land was bounded by Randall Ramsey and James Sims.

---
Any information on these two and/or their parents, wives, children, etc. would be appreciated.

I believe the senior Isaac Ramsey's wife's name was Sarah (LNU) and land records show him in the area by 1763. I am descended from Randall Ramsey which was likely the son of Isaac Jr or Thomas Sr. I have been trying to find answers in the land records. I have many records from Edgefield District but I need to search records for Abbeville District (they lived on the border of the two districts and I know of at least one land transaction that was recorded in Abbeville instead of Edgefield even though the land was in Edgefield). I'll just dump out all the records I have that mention the Ramseys in this one area (many family relations are mentioned).

Hi Craig:
I am sure based on circumstantial evidence that I belong to this family.
I have a lone Elizabeth Ramsey born ca 1792 in possibly SC. I believe that sisters are: Susannah (she's older but I wonder), Charity and Rebecca and possibly an Isaac. All the girls married cousins of the Hollingsworth family who resided nearby Edgefield and vicinity. The girls migrated to Miami County, Ohio early 1800's. Richard Henderson was also in the area and I believe that he is an uncle to the girls and his sister, Mary Henderson (probably their mother) married Isaac Ramsey. I could write a book on the whole thing as it is one enormous tangled web and difficult to explain.

What kind of information or knowledge do you have regarding the Isaac Sr and Jr? I have been digging around and know about these men and they had business dealings with the Thortons, Hendersons which all migrated to Miami County and then onward to Vermillion, Indiana. The Quaker influence was heavy in these areas. Ramsey do not appear to be Quakers.

Craig: We are of the Henderson line. Mary Henderson (born in VA either 2/1763 or 9/1762 ((daughter of Nathaniel Henderson (1744-803) married Thomas Ramsey. According to Nathaniel Henderson's will, they were given land in the Cuffeecreek area. We were recently in South Carolina (family history searching in the Edgefield area. We didn't have the time to specifically locate the property that the Henderson's had, but we did find a Henderson Cemetery. There were about 30 stone grave markers (just rocks...no names) and 4 marked graves (2 Hendersons, 1 Canfield, ?) It may be that some of your Ramsey's may also be burried there. If you're interested in pictures or to follow up with the Henderson/Ramsey relationship, please contact me.

Very interesting. Yes, I am interested in any information you have. The Hendersons and Ramseys lived adjacent to each other back into the 1700s right during the time that I'm search the hardest on. Do you have a copy of that will? I am a bit surprised that it shows Mary married to Thomas. I have seen that Mary became a Ramsey - I just wasn't positive who she married. One of the records I have listed shows an Isaac Ramsey having a wife Mary - I assumed maybe that was who she married. It all gets a bit confusing - there were at least 3 Thomas Ramsey's maybe as many as 5 - and there were at least 2 Isaac Ramsey's. Thomas Sr was married to a Lerena (LNU). They had a son Thomas Jr - maybe that is the Thomas she married. I know that Thomas Jr had 3 sons James, William, and Thomas, and a daughter Frances. Any information you can provide would be a huge help - I would love to get a copy of that will.

I think I am in this line of the Ramseys but I'm not sure. I know the I'm from the Marion Thomas Ramsey line (from South Carolina that died in LA). If this is the same line, can you please lay out who married who and what not. I'm new to this whole thing, and very confused.

You sound like you might be from the line of Samuel & Eleanor Ramsey. They had children that migrated to a northern Parish of LA. There were quiet a few of them there and they went down in history as having the longest ongoing and multiple death feud in America's history, before relocating out of the Parish area. So you'll want to do your homework on Samuel of Edgefield and see where it leads you.
