Kristne, I have quite a bit about Johnny as I am also kin. I am going to publish a web page and the lineage. I also have history facts about him. I have never had a web page published before so it may take me several days to figure out how to get it online. If you would like to write me and let me know what information you would like I would be glad to give it to you if I can

James, Was out to Tombstone, AZ in March 03 to interview with the local Newspaper, Tombstone Tumbleweed. The purpose of the visit and interview was to let people know what a nice family the Ringo's are. Not sure they bought it. They ran a series of 3 articles. I now get the Tomestone Tumbleweed and note there is an annual visit to Johnny Ringo's grave. Jim

One of John's sisters, Fannie Fern Ringo (1857-1932), was my great grandmother. Their father was Martin Ringo (1819-1864), his father was Peter Ringo (1791-1859), and his father was Major Ringo (1755-1838), a great-grandson of Albertus, who was born in New Amsterdam in 1656.

There is a book, John Ringo: The Gunfighter Who Never Was, by Jack Burrows (Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 1987). On the basis of family information, I think it is pretty accurate. Jack was a professor at San Jose City College, and has several entries in western history books.

Don, The Jack Burrows book, is full of inaccurate information. David Leer Ringo, the Ringo family senior historian and genealogiest wrote a review on this book that was recently published in the Tombestone Tumbleweed newspaper that pointed out the inaccurate information. By the way, Jack Burrows is related to the Earp family, not known to be friendly to us Ringo's. A more recent book, John Ringo, by David Johnson, published by the Barbed Wire Press in 1996 is an accurate account of Johnny Ringo's life and your line in the Ringo family.

Did you get any responses?? I have some information, but have not confirmed it all.

I would be willing to share what I have, but I not sure how it relates to yours. I am researching Martha, Johnny's sister.

Have you found your information, I have some but it is not confirmed.

I am researching Johnny's sister Martha. Family folklore states she is a g-g-great grandmother but I cannot confirm that. Ennis Alexander (31Jan1893-15Dec1981) is supposely her granddaughter but I have not been able to establish the link.
