Surname Saturday - Ramsey

Today's surname is Ramsey, the name of one of my gg grandmothers. (I've included Ahnentafel numbers to make the relationships clearer.)

7. Emma Ewers Taylor (maternal grandmother)
14. John Cook Taylor
28. James Francis "Jim" Taylor

[John C. Taylor's parents were 1st cousins so they have the same Ramsey line. James Francis Taylor's Ramsey connection is also covered here to avoid repeating some of the Ramsey line again later when I get to his mother.]

Born 15 Nov 1840, Rockcastle County, Kentucky
Married James Francis "Jim" Taylor 11 Oct 1855, Rockcastle County, Kentucky
Died 23 Jun 1892, Renfro Valley, Rockcastle County, Kentucky
Buried Ramsey-Taylor Cemetery, Renfro Valley, Rockcastle County, Kentucky

Married Martha (maiden name not proven) abt. 1772, Colony of Virginia

Thomas Sr.'s parents were probably Francis Ramsey & Elizabeth Ferguson but I haven't done any research on the Ramsey line prior to Thomas.
