Looking for information on Ruth Bull and Donald E. Ransom, both of whom are buried in the Fairview Cemetery in AuSable Forks, New York....who is Ruth's parents and who are Donald's parents? Ruth born 1923; Donald born 1918.
I am doing research on the Bull Family and I have been unable to connect her or him to a birth family.

A/Delbert/Edmund's parents are living in: [ta DAH!] Au Sable Forks, Essex, New York

In 1870 Westport, Essex NY, "Edmond" is 7 NY, living with 2 sisters and parents Christopher 52 VT & Lucy 35 NY RANSOM.

In 1860, Christopher 42 VT and Lucy Jane 25 VT have 2 daughters [Almina? & Sis 2) in Keene, Essex NY.

I didn't quickly and easily find Christopher in the 1850, so I'll stop and let someone else track him down!
