I'm searching for one of my paternal ancestors, a Sarah Ann RANSON. I'm not sure that's her last name, I'm thinking it is possible that RANSOM is the correct one.
I've found a copy of the 1860, Pike County, Martinsburg Township that is showing a William RANSOM married to a S L, with a 1 year old daughter denoted as S A. I can't find her in ANY other document anywhere. I'm hoping someone with access to records, or knowledge of the area, can help.
I do know that MY Sarah Ann married John Colvin Ellis on 14 Dec 1879 in Mason County, Illinois. I've checked a map & it seems that Bath, Mason County, Illinois is about 80 miles away. John was born in Bath, Mason County, Illinois. I'm hoping, *fingers crossed*, that this might be my Sarah Ann.
John Colvin's parents are Effie Ann (McKim) & Samuel Ellis. John was born 13 Sept 1860.
If you have any information I am happy for even the smallest shred! I am cross posting this in the Pike County board in hopes of getting some thread to follow.
Thanks again for any & all help! I really appreciate it!
