Do you have the 1860/70 census posted on these families?
Please Send.

NELSON RAMSEY and LYDIA are living together with NO kids in

NELSON RAMSEY 23 KY, (ca 1827) PAGE 68
LIDEA 19 KY (ca 1831)
no kids

so THEY were married this year? or by 1850.
AND you connect to their son JOHN R. RAMSEY and MARY FARILL who LYDIA SELLERS RAMSEY is living with in 1880 listed as Mother?

WHICH child of theirs do you connect and went to =

NOW the HENRY SELLERS from PULASKI CO, KY went to MONROE CO, IN has sent a letter shared to us by CONNIE =
HE has an AUNT LYDIA RAMSEY living close to him.
NOW there was a NELSON RAMSEY in civil war from IN also. (Mont Co, In ?) = didn't check info.

BUT NELSON RAMSEY ,dec'd =  civil war vet CO K 12 KY INF, UNION ARMY
LYDIA, wife
is listed in the 1890 PULASKI CO, KY census.
I fast checked for a pension app and did Not find.
DID she die before the applications came out OR before she filed?
OR maybe NOT in the records I checked.
COULD there be a connection to the INDIANA NELSON RAMSEY?

ALSO BAILEY RAMSY was in CW from KY and a guardian JAMES RASMEY is listed.
didn't check further.
YOU may NOT find anyone connected to NELSON RAMSEY's Kids,
BUT you may find someone connected to LYDIA'S family or NELSONS family?
SO you/we  need the documents from 1850/1870 on Each Family.
THANKS for sharing what you have.
  US GEN WEB /states/counties
  is free and many documents on line.

This is my information:
Nelson Ramsey (brother of James Ramsey) was born10 June, 1813, died20 Nov.
1897; Md. Eleanor Crisp 24 Sept. 1832.  Eleanor was born 15 Feb. 1806; died
21 July 1892.   Their children were: Sally A.;Delila J.;  Mary E.; and James

Nelson Ramsey (son of James ) was born ca 1828; died after 1876; md. Lydia
Sellers ca 1850;   They had children: Lucy A.; Charles,  John R. ;  Usely;
Danson R.?? and Manda.  The first two children may have been twins.  Lucy
was born 27 July 1854 and died 30 July 1854; Charles died 24 Aug. 1854.  Or
perhaps Charles was older than Lucy. I have nothing to prove this.
